Real Goods Portable Plug & Play Off-Grid Power System
Our Real Goods Portable Plug & Play Off-Grid Power System offers a complete, customizable and portable renewable energy system. Designed and built at our Real Goods Tech Desk, we use the most versatile and reliable components available, all packed in a heavy-duty plastic tote so you can take it with you to the cabin, campground, RV, or anywhere you need off-grid power.
Our Real Goods Portable Off-Grid Power System is plug-and-play and easy to use. Simply connect a solar panel or small array (200 - 600 Watts) and a sealed or vented battery bank (ideally 2 golf cart batteries at +/- 2600 Watt-hours or 4 golf cart batteries at +/- 5200 Watt-hours) and use the included AC inverter power outlet just like you would at home. Our Solar + Battery Option (available under "Accessories" above) includes a solar array and battery bank hand-picked to perfectly complete your Real Goods Portable Plug & Play Off-Grid Power System with 5.2 kWh of solar power per day.
Providing 2 kWh of daily energy, our Real Goods Portable Plug & Play Off-Grid Power System is ideal for campsites, festivals, emergency use, back-up to existing grid-tied solar, e-bike and scooter charging stations and more. For full-time* off-grid use, the Real Goods Portable Off-Grid Power System will power electrical loads such as lights, electronics, water pumps - even toasters, microwaves, power tools and very small air conditioners in cabins, tiny houses, yurts, RVs, and travel trailers.

Real Goods Portable Off-Grid Power System Applications
- Full-time use
Connect or add a solar panel and battery (like our Solar + Battery Option above) for 5.2 kWh of off-grid PV power for small electrical loads (lights, electronics, water pumps, power tools). Ideal for cabins, yurts, tiny houses, RVs, or trailers.
- Part-time or emergency backup use
Use in tandem with a 2000-3000 Watt generator to stretch just a few gallons of gas out long enough to last many days - even weeks.
With the addition of a small generator, an efficient refrigerator or washer/dryer (with gas heat) may be used full time if attention is paid to PV power in vs. load power out.
Bring lights and power to your artwork, campsite, or vendor display.
- Off-grid power in the city
PV power for renters, home offices, preppers, or tiny houses. Use solar power first with the grid as backup.

If your existing PV system has an emergency outlet, six hours of charging your Real Goods Portable Off-Grid Power System from your existing PV system can provide 3 kWh or more of daily battery charging.
- Add to existing 12 volt DC power systems
Can be added to existing RV battery systems or older homesteading systems in minutes.
