When you hear the words “Go Solar,” what do you think about? You may think about adding new equipment to your home, rig, or boat to save money over the long term. Or, you view it as something you can do now to reduce your carbon footprint immediately. Maybe you even dream of an off-grid, traveling lifestyle? Each person hears something different in those two simple words.
Our “Go Solar” moment happened back in 2012 when we added a small solar powered system to our vintage rig and hit the road to explore our continent, off the grid. What we didn’t realize a decade ago was that we were at the beginning of a revolution that was about to sweep the planet. Over the past 10 years, RV and van owners across the world have given up their gas-powered generators and added solar to their rigs to power their lives off-grid. A solar lifestyle is not only about saving money, reducing carbon, and self-sufficiency; it’s also about deciding to live a more free, exciting, and sustainable lifestyle with a mind toward the future of our planet and the next generation.
Want to become a change maker and share your solar lifestyle with others? You can do more than just post your photos on social media. Renogy offers a couple of different programs that reward you for being a change agent and helps you get the most out of your solar lifestyle – Renogy’s Power Plus Community rewards you and the Energy Wonders Expedition Program rewards you + 2 friends!
