I just spent 11 Grand on my well it goes down 280 feet uses a 220 AC pump however as I do have off-grid power running on a 5kw lithium battery though it can do the 220 pump I don't like pushing it to the max every time I need to wash my hands so my power saving solution was simple I use an RV water tank that I happen to have with its own 12 volt pump I simply kick on the well water once or twice a week fill the tank and then run on 12 volt from there all I need to do is flip a couple of valves and push a button  

I do have four 330 gallon reservoirs I intend to use as a backup rain collection system and to experiment with a gravity feed system in the future but I have not gotten there yet

Sadly there is not much you can do to significantly upgrade the speed of laptop is there only compatible with a handful of Parts upgrades and that usually only maybe three graphics cards hard drives and a handful of ram hard drives being upgraded will only increase your boot time and Storage Ram can update your speed however modern laptops often come with Overkill Ram anyway because it's cheap and a great advertising point modern Windows OS blow I'm a big-time PC Gamer and I will not touch Windows 8 or 10 Windows 7 is where I call it quits if you're not gaming Linux is a great alternative however there is quite the learning curve I hate to be Debbie Downer but Electronics in general seemed to go downhill faster with each generation they can do cooler and cooler things less and less reliably for more and more money

Yes my current 48 volt panels are hooked up in series as well as they don't actually put out 48 volts as they say but at that point if I need five of them I might as well just buy full size 48v solar panel is they would not only match the current ones but it's easier to mount one and cheaper then to mount five

A great way to get hot water is a tankless on demand gass heater uses about 1/6 the gass if not less
As for solar its almost never a bad idea the rule of thum is the more you have the faster they pay themselvs off
Even if they pay you back to slow it will not matter as the value of your home jumps up big time my gass and electric bill togather with solar and a tankless heater was about -80 to +10 durring spring summer and fall and i got a credit that added up till winter hit and my first 3 or 4 heat bills were free
