your thoughts please.
I have almost 2000 watts on my roof with a victron 3000 watt inverter , I can run both of my AC units on 18 amp off the grid. The victron inverters can be set to current limit what your useing from the grid , So I can reduce my electric bill but there is ZERO chance you can run one AC with roof solar for any reasonable amount of time. Having said that assuming you have room for a ground mounted panels you could manage 80% off grid during sunny days. Your next questions is what did that cost you , My labor was free and the parts with 5 battleborn batterys will run you $8000~$10,000 + !
