#2 – Conserving Cottage
Produces about 1.6-6.4 usable kilowatt-hours on a sunny day.
Year round home for 1 to 3 people. Provides 120V AC power for lighting, vacuum, washer, kitchen appliances & microwaves, DC or 120V AC well pump, color TV, DVD, satellite receiver, stereo, computer and hand-held power tools. There can be enough power for a small DC refrigerator in sunny climates. In northern winters, the generator supplements battery charging while using high load appliances, such as a washing machine. We would recommend that this system should be set up with a 24V or 48V battery bank and an automatic generator start for battery charging should be considered.
