Short answer is: you can do whatever you want off-grid if your system is fat enough. If you wanna put 30kws of panels on your off-grid rood go for it... wanna go for 200kw and 100 panels.. go for it... otherwise off-gridding is about BALANCE (like life itself) to maintain a LIFESTYLE...
dry you hair with a towel and the sun, put your food in a box outside when the temp is below 40f. Dry your clothes on a line.. windows & sylights to bring in natural light.. the POINT of being off-grid is the lifestyle that comes with it... many 'modern conviences' are meant to get the slaves presentable enough in QUICK TIME to then go slave all day long at an office... if you are living off-grid you likley life a lifestly that allows you to towel dry your hair and then sit in the sun for an hour or so while you are sipping your coffee..letting the sun naturally dry your hair...
If you are living off gird you likley have the time to put your clothes on the line and let them dry in whatever timeframe is necessary to dry them... offgrid lifestyle and TIME go hand in hand.. hairdriers. microwaves, clothes dryers are less about labour-saving and more about time-saving for the modern proletariat who needs to be at the office for 14 hours a day 8 days a week.......
dunno how anyone can live off-grid and own a TV... I'm going on 17 years of not owning a TV... there's a whole world out there.. ENJOY THAT!
