    LOL.  I'm a bit surprised it can count that high, though it looks like it's "only" ~4.3 billion days.

    Assuming 32 bit processor, max int would be 2^32=4,294,967,296 ...so you better get busy  >:)
    Off-grid.  
    Main daytime system ~4kw panels into 2xMNClassic150 370ah 48v bank 2xOutback 3548 inverter 120v + 240v autotransformer
    Night system ~1kw panels into 1xMNClassic150 700ah 12v bank morningstar 300w inverter
