In today’s podcast, I have Kevin (The Broken Nomad) on to talk about grid-down energy options & solar power. As some of you know, Kevin is in the process of setting up his van to be able to travel around the country for indefinite periods of time. 

What Kevin is doing goes hand in hand with what preppers might expect if the power went out and we needed to find alternative forms of energy. While we may not travel across the country, the principal is the same in a van, a bug-out location, or your home. 

We will walk through a basic solar setup and other alternative energy options. Then he will show us what he has done over the last few years. 

We’ll be answering questions we get during the show, and you can also reach out to either of us in the future if you like.
