Recently, we experienced complete outages for around 8 hours, due to construction on a nearby road. We have decided to install a backup battery and solar array to prevent this from happening in the future.
Is this feasible? Would a gas generator be better? Would a battery be able to power a house with average power consumption in the US for one day, which would be about 33 kWh?
Where would I be able to purchase such a battery, and a solar array that would fit the specifications above?
- The battery must be at least 33 kWh in capacity
- This array, with zero outside power supply, should power an average US home for one day (24 hr) at average usage.
- This battery should be able to charge by solar panels, perhaps installed on the roof or on another place (location is not relevant).
