Well, yes. we have twelve 100 watt solar panels by Regogy which I have split into two arrays, one 60 amp charge controller also by Renogy, one Midnight Solar Classic 60 amp charge controller, a Renogy 2000 watt inverter and two battery banks consisting of 6 six volt 240 amp hour batteries each.
Now we don't have anything like air conditioning or a forced air furnace. But our system is enough to give us all the lighting at night we need, about 5 hours of cable TV and internet and a pot or two of Mr Coffee in the morning. As long as the sun shines during the day, we have electricity for about 24 hours.
Our hot water is instant-on gas heated by Eco-Temp. We have one made for the interior, and one for the exterior shower and laundry.
Now, and for our water, we have to have a generator to power the 5 hp 220 ac motor for now. We had a stainless-steel hand pump by a company called Simple-Pump also installed in our well, and they make a DC or 110 AC motor, designed for the Simple-pump http://www.simplepump.com/our-pumps/motorized/'
This winter we stayed very comfortable because we went ahead and had the house insulated, encapsulated actually with soft-cell foam insulation. We have insulation on the under side of the roof and all exterior walls. We have a steel roof and exterior. No maintenance.
Anyone want more details on our system, I will be glad to help.
