lol, will do though we're rather broke ourselves living paycheck to paycheck. So we're moving VERY slowly through this process and I'm guessing it'll take a few years to pull it together.
By working some calculations, I figure I usr about about 16 kWh, a day average looking at electric bill).
Assuming for hours of uswatts/ panel ==able sunlight a day, I need to generate 4k watts/ hour. @ 100watts/ panel, that's 40 panels @$100 each ( minimum). Figure in about 20 batteries for storage, then increase everything for extra storage for days with no sun.
The economics aren't there, but I still have a goal to work toward.
Looked at the small wind generators, and most don't do much of anything but look pretty. Really not enough wind here to do much. Need 12-20 mph wind to really generate much. If you do wind, however, there is a thing called dump load to keep them from overspinning, this excess electricity is easily captured by a resistance load, I.e. a water heater element.
Yeah, I've been researching a lot. Part of why I want on much.
