Tiny House Base Kit #1 - Small
600 Watt Solar Power System for Tiny Houses

What can be better than a Tiny House? A Tiny House with solar - of course! altE has designed 3 Solar Power System Base Kits - Small, Medium, and Large - depending on the size and power needs of your tiny home.

So where should you begin?

  • We're sure if you have a Tiny House, you're already energy conscious, and have been conserving where you can - great, that's the first step!
  • Now you'll need to figure out how much power you'll need for your tiny home. Our Off Grid System Calculator will help you narrow that down.
  • After that, look at the map below to find where you live. We have calculated out how much power you'll get on average on a monthly basis. Again, we have 3 kits to choose from, so if this is too small, check out our larger kits for Tiny Homes.
  • Then, what type of energy storage is best for your needs? Is low/no maintenance important to you? Lowest cost? Longest cycle life? See the Battery Option chart below to help you decide.
  • Lastly, how will you mount your Solar Power System for your Tiny Home? If the solar panels fit on your roof, we have a Metal Roof Option, and a Shingle Roof Option. Or, if your Tiny House is more permanent, than temporary, and you have land you can utilize, a Pole Mount Option may be better for you. (Plus, a bonus for mounting on the ground, is that you'll get better air flow, less heat, and more efficency from your panels - and you can put your house in the shade!)
  • How much power will I get from this system on average, each month?
