2.5 kWh per Day

These systems will run very energy efficient households using up to 2.5 kWh per day with use of lower powered appliances.  There's even a version for holiday homes used only 2-3 days per week - this one includes gel batteries so you don't have to fret about batteries running dry if you don't get up to the shack for a few weeks.

Here's an example of what 2.5 kWh per day looks like.
