Wanting to be Off Grid
I live very rural and would like to put my house off grid ( and my electric bill behind me ). per my current utility bill I am using approx. 4500kw per month. I have put together so for a 3kw 115 volt inverter with 6 -115 AH batteries wired in parallel maintaining a 12 volt system. I have 4 - 100 watt panels going through a 30 amp charge controller. I know this isn't enough to power my home yet, but I'm stuck, how many of what do I need? I have tried solar calculators that show me anywhere from 400 batteries and 200 panels to 18 batteries and 12 panels - where does the truth lie in this?
