Bryce and Misty paid off their debts, left the city, and have spent the last 12 years building a cob home, homesteading, living off the grid, and homeschooling their two daughters.

They live without a car, so for transportation, they use taxis and bicycles, and they eventually hope to have a cart that their two horses can pull.

This is a review of the Jackery Solar Generator 1000 (Portable Power Station with two 100W Solar Panels and also an announcement for their upcoming Black Friday Sale, which will be the best time to pick one up. The sale starts November 26, and ends November 30th, 2020. The E160, E240, E500, E1000, and the solar panels will all be discounted.

Jackery was kind enough to send us one of their solar generators to review which I’ve been toying with over the last week. It’s the Jackery Explorer 1000, or E1000, along with two 100W folding solar panels. This system gives you the ability to recharge your generator in as little as 8 hours, which then gives you the power for 13 laptop charges, 7 hours of refrigeration, 40 minutes of electric stove, or 76 hours of light, just for a few examples. It’s great for camping, outdoor activities, or even just to use green energy around the house in everyday life. You can use it to power your blender, juicer, power tools, and various other appliances. Something like this can also be handy for videographers, photographers, and podcasters on the go. So far, I love it. And I’m finding more and more ways to use.
