I should be clear that I'm only interested in running all of my lighting, computer, WiFi, a couple of 115V outlets for use if needed, and 'emergency' use refrigerator or appliances. The only thing I'm not prepared for is a keeping my 220V deep well pump going during an outage. I have purchased a 'hand-pump' and plan on spiking that into the ground for emergency water source. I heat with wood and that would be my source for 'hot' water if ever the situation unfolds. Ideally, my house would run most everything on 7.5 kwh but that's a bit of a reach for my financial situation. That scenario would be to install about 30 X 250W panels or 75 X 100W panels - and a battery bank big enough to deliver.
