We use solar-powered since 2010. We continue to produce enough power from our current mutant vehicle and the panels we have on top of the Cumbia trailer to cover mobility, a decent sound system, blender, lights, tools, espreicito machine, cellphone charging, air pumps, etc.
La Chiva Electrica; our mutant vehicle is one of the few solar beasts roaming and blasting sound at BRC; we detest noisy generators and love our pure sound at camp or around. As per radical inclusion, we do not detest non-noisy generators.
The system consists of:
One (1) Outback Power MATE Remote Monitor & Control
Two (2) – Junction boxes
Two (2) – Orient Power LifePO4 Batteries – 51.2V, 100Ah, 5120Wh each.
Eight (8) – deep cycle 6v 340 amp hour batteries on the Chiva form a theoretical 7344000 coulombs unit.
Eight (8) – deep cycle 6v 180 amp hour batteries on the Cumbia forming a theoretical 3 888 000 coulombs unit.
One (1) – Outback power FX3648 pure sine wave inverter 
One (1) -Octopus junction box
One (1) 2000w sine inverter
One (1) -Midnite solar KID 30A charge controller.
Two (2) – MX60 Charge controllers 
Six (6) – 190w/h panels.
Six (6) – 330w/h panels
Solar Power Grid History @ BRC
in 2010, we had four panels.
in 2011, we had 12 panels.
in 2012, we had 20 panels.
In 2013, we had 19 panels.
in 2014, we had 19 panels.
In 2015, we had six panels on top of the Chiva.
In 2016, we had six panels on top of the Chiva.
In 2017, we had six panels on top of the Chiva
In 2018, we had 12 panels, six on top of the Chiva.
In 2019, we had 12 panels, six on top of the Chiva.
In 2020 we had 12 panels; 6 on top of Chiva and 6 @ default world. In 2021, we got ready and built Solar Cumbia first iteration
In 2022 we had 6 panels on top of Chiva and 6 panels on top of Cumbia.
In 2023 we had 6 panels on top of Chiva and 6 panels on top of Cumbia.
Apart from these systems, we have smaller 12v panels charging independent deep cycle batteries for LED lights and other 12-volt stuff.
