I will have eight golfcart batteries in two separate banks of four in series and parallel, giving me about 900 amp/hours at 12V. To charge them I have eight Sharp 255W panels totaling 2040 watts that power two Morningstar TS-MPPT-60 charge controllers. My intention is very simple - my solar will be enough for all my needs, including a 12K minisplit and heatpump in the front and a 5 or 6K window A/C in the bedroom, and I will have three days' autonomy if the sun doesn't shine for that long (but that's very unusual here). Along with that, I have 220 gallons of fresh water and 180 gallons of black and gray tanks, so I should be self-sufficient for at least a month off-grid by myself, or two weeks for my GF and I (he says optimistically!).
