Systems are designed to run on just battery power for 10 hours. You may want to explore this area. It is their future and should have some interesting applications for us.

I've been setting up systems like this all summer on Airstreams. 400-600 amp/ hour lithium batteries, 3000 watt Magnum hybrid inverters and of course, solar.

These systems are designed to operate a single roof A/C from a single 2000 watt generator with battery assist, but the systems have sufficient capacity to run a single roof A/C even WITHOUT THE GENERATOR for time periods of 3-5 hours.

Ain't technology wonnerful????
