Making a wise generator choice?
I'm sure this topic has been beaten to death simply based on system design requirements, fuel source, budget, reliability etc.
However, Is there a "10 commandments" to generator selection when designing an off grid power system?
Originally I liked the idea of a smaller lower rpm Kubota powered diesel generator due to quality/ longevity and best bang (most power) for your buck with fuel consumption.
Now I am considering the possible continual refilling mess (guess that could be mitigated with an external fuel tank) and that It may not run enough to justify spending the cash on a prime generator (designed for round the clock usage). Then again you'd only buy it once and you could pass it on to the boy.
Questions many have already been through that I am hoping to lean from.
Appreciate any input that others may have to add to this topic.
