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!!
