    I think your going to have a challenge with #7. If you need to get a permit for this, I think not many P.E.'s are going to be too enthused about stamping plans for an underground tank house...if Homer has a plan review process, that may be another stumbling block...I'd talk to a engineer before you get too much money invested..

    For your power and solar needs check out ;
    http://absak.com/

    They have stores in both Anchorage and Fairbanks. They will ship your order.
    They will design you a system, you just tell them your parameters and they will use the properly sized elements to make it happen.

    Be aware that most review boards will require that the details are stamped by an Alaska PE! So if you do go out of state, ensure that they can properly stamp the design.

    I'm not familiar with Homer's requirements or contractors in that area to answer any of your questions. Good luck on your project.
