Where I'm at I have 2 battery banks set up, one that gives 35 hours before the inverter auto kills. The other gives me about 10 hours, and that is with 2 florescent lights going the TV internet and phone all running. So I only run one of the 3 small gas generators (2.5k, 3k, 5.2k) when I need to pressurize my water system or run the hot water heater. It works out to every other day for about 4 hours, I top up the batteries so I don't drain them to much.
Soon I will be putting up a small wind turbine and hook it into the hot water heater as a dump load when the batteries are charged.
Whats everyone else doing?
Any advice on a off grid power setup?
