New guy doing his research

Hey to whoever is seeing this. Iím currently in the research and bus shopping phase of my conversion. I hope I can find some good information here. One this right off the bat is, I want to eventually put solar panels on my future skoolie but since Iíll be starting off with a very limited budget I wonít have the funds to buy them so, to my question, is it possible to design my electric system to handle solar but not use that side of things until I have the funds available or does it make more sense to wire it in when I get the solar panels.

put conduit in large enough to handle the entire system. add panels and batteries as you can afford them.(make your system expandable) as this is the internet use caution
