As a DIY kinda guy, I am often shocked at the costs that people cite. Of course, we rarely do a very good job describing exactly what is included in a dollar figure. In my case, I already had a reasonable battery bank and inverter. I added 650 watts of flat mounted solar panels, a Morningstar TS-MPPT-45 charge controller, some cables and brackets. All together, about $1,200 - this setup provides for all my electrical needs (minus air conditioning which I very rarely use).
