Why not use the solar for those things you have mentioned above on a daily basis instead of waiting for a black out to switch to the solar power? If solar can run those items then wire them permanently to solar and that way you utilize your solar investment 100%.

Just seeing this today. Good question. I had not thought of that. I guess to preserve the battery and charge controller+inverter for longer? I guess I have always looked at my small size portable solar system (80w Panel, 75ah batt, 300W inverter) as backup and not as something I would use daily. I guess I could use it daily but the energy savings from my KPLC bill would not be so much, I suppose? The beauty and convenience of my compact system really emerges during blackouts IMHO.

New Normal!
