I am right now trying to decide if I want to hook up to the grid or start with a battery and inverter. Its $400 dollars to connect to the grid starting with a temporary then hook to the electrical panel. Its probably at least $700 just for the battery and inverter and 1 solar panel that produces 100w is about $200. I was thinking of hooking to the grid and buying the inverter and batter while I have the excess funds and buy panels as I can. This way I have the electric to finish building and as soon as the building is done I can focus on just the panels.

It also doesn't mean you can't have employment off your land or have a social life with the community.
