Hi Guys I build last year a solar powered mobile recording studio. See the pics below to get the idea.
TECHNICAL INFOS:4x 220Ah Solar Batteries (2x 24V / 440Ah)5x 150Wp /24V Solar Panels1x Victron Multiplus 70/30001x Solar ChargerEnergy-Consumption of my mobile Studio is about 150Watt.Even on days with a mix of clouds and sun, we get about 200Watt from the sun.Without any sunshine, the 4 batteries last about 5 days (8h a day working time) for recording/producing music off grid.

....and $60,000 in spare cash ? At least ? Interestingly no mention of battery banks there. Once that little lot is running, the solar panels ain't going to scratch that load.
Big solar panels.
And storage batteries and a really high quality power inverter.
And some recording equipment.
And a smart meter to sell your surplus energy back to the grid when you're producing more than you need and the batteries are full.
....what a great ensemble answer
I agree. Steve/Re/Raving/Jayfuu together for the win.
Did anybody mention anything about finding some one with a little talent to record?
Well... this is like that rule "Ask stupid questions, get stupid answers". Except in this case.... "Ask obtuse questions, get obtuse answers"
