Temporary Electric Power For Building a House

"I have a question about the order of the construction process.

I believe it is step 3, you note that you have to order temporary electrical and port-o-toilet.

We are planning to be "off the grid" and use solar and wind with a battery storage system for our new home.

Do you suggest fully installing the wind/solar equipment first, or are there other alternatives for a temporary power source?

Thanks so much,


Hi Marsha,

You will need a generator!

Sun & wind power are not always available when you need a lot of electricity on demand.

Be sure to check that any generator you rent is adequate.

Undersized generators under heavy loads can cause a voltage drop resulting in an increase in current, damaging construction equipment.

Good luck,
