Off-grid considerations

From the Blue Pacific Solar website “Most off-grid generation is used for lighting, appliances like refrigerators and water pumping. Lighting is the easiest to tackle. Don’t stop at compact florescent lights, go all the way to LED which can use 1/6th the watt consumption of compact florescent lighting.” http://www.bluepacificsolar.com/off-grid.html
