    Very remote, You'll need water trucked in, the solar system is not the best, not enough to run A/C or electric appliances, so propane for those. The 'new' batteries look pretty dusty, might just be the nature of the environment, or might be the agent thinking anything less than 5 years old is 'new'. You'll even need fire wood trucked in...
    Home system 4000 watt (Evergreen) array standing, with 2 Midnite Classic Lites,  Midnite E-panel, Magnum MS4024, Prosine 1800(now backup) and Exeltech 1100(former backup...lol), 660 ah 24v Forklift battery(now 10 years old). Off grid for 20 years (if I include 8 months on a bicycle).
    - Assorted other systems, pieces and to many panels in the closet to not do more projects.
