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
Eight (8) – deep cycle 6v 340 amp hour batteries on the Chiva forming 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 4 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 6 panels; on top of the Chiva.
In 2016 we had 6 panels; on top of the Chiva.
In 2017 we had 6 panels; on top of the Chiva
In 2018 we had 12 panels; 6 on top of the Chiva.
In 2019 we had 12 panels; 6 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 the Solar Cumbia first iteration
In 2022 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.
