Which one should I choose if I want to buy solar panels? Why?

    1. Define/measure your loads (lots of conservation)
    2. When/how/where will the system be used.
    3. Paper design. Battery bank and solar panel sizes.
    4. Design several paper systems with different brands/models of equipment that may meet your needs.
    5. Buy the hardware.

    And defining the loads is the hardest.
    Off grid or grid tie is also a needed piece of knowledge. If grid tie then what does the net metering plan look like, it will have a big effect on the outcome.
