Keep your cabin appliances running and maintain energy independence with an off-grid system


These days, electrical service is ubiquitous in residences. But in the woods and lakesides of northern Minnesota, many cabins and hunting shacks operate without power from the grid. 

At Real Solar, we believe that you shouldn't have to leave modern conveniences behind when you take a cabin retreat. And you don't have to when you have solar panels, batteries and a generator backing you up.

Our dedicated team is ready to design and install an off-grid system that will keep your devices running. Every off-grid setup is different, which is why it's important to have the experts at Real Solar consult with you on your project.
