In light of that the solar setup we purchase needs to last 25 years plus as we will not have money for new batteries in 10 years time. I'm not concerned with efficiency as we will not be running any major appliances or heating anything, we just need to power LED lighting, charge power tools, water pump and dvd player / tv. I think our power usage will be fairly nominal.
