I am a little confused. I see that this is completely separate from your power company supplied electricity. So, are you using it only through extension cords and power strips? Are you tied into the household wiring at all?
Also, what is the relationship between your power in amps, and the kilowatts used by appliances. What would be the maximum wattage applicance you could run on this system. E.g. I assume it cannot run a refrigerator or water heater, only the smaller stuff like lights, coffee maker?
If that is the case, I assume the savings are minimal?

We are grid tied solar, but I was thinking of putting in a setup like this for backup during ice storms and other power outages. Very nice video, shows a simple setup that anyone can do for not a whole lot of money. Good Job!!

Very good info but I have a few questions.
!. What is the first thing I should do if I want to go off the grid like you have done. (i.e. where did you get your knowledge)
2.. If 4 battries are goo, what about 12 or 24 of them?
3...Talk to me about cost? What did the total cost run, and how much are you saving?? i.e I invested $800 and my electric bill went from $200 to ???$50 per month.
I like the video...please post more..
