Blank slate start
We bought a farm in PA and are building a home on a hill there. We have completely unobstructed east, south and northern exposure in what is a corn field. We are planning on ground mounted solar panels, lithium ion batteries and a propane generator for backup. Heating, cooking, etc. will not be electric but there might be a few days per year that we run the AC. Being a farm, we also need to run a very small machine shop once in a while. Love to get some ideas from the experts here on what I should use and what I have wrong. From other posts it seems that starting with 48 volt is better than 12. Help is much appreciated.
Off grid - 17 kW ground mounted panels, (42) Aquion S30 batteries
