20 kWh per Day

From time to time we get people telling us "guys, we just want to be able to turn stuff on".

Well these systems are for them.  They will run large households using up to 20 kWh per day.  This is enough for a bigger home full of teenagers who really don't switch stuff off and who aren't interested in compromise.  Team this up with an auto start generator and you'll have cleaner and more reliable power than the grid can provide.

As above, it's best to not use electricity for hot water or for heating although some do have electric boost solar hot water.  It can handle higher usage of everyday appliances including a couple of split system air conditioners and a pool pump.
