I believe 90% of the homes i saw around Adelaide had solar panels, and you would always see tv commercials about a package deal if i think, 6 panels or so plus the inverter.
Here in Alaska most people go straight to deep cycle batteries, and then invert up, or split off and use 12v dc for in house led lights. And often combine a wind generator.
But most who again who go this way are off the grid, no powerlines near them.
Thats my goal, get completely off the grid, like way early this morning at about 1:30 am, i had just got home from an evening at the Wasilla Bingo Mania, won $600, but wasn't in the house 5 minutes and we had a MAJOR earthquake!
It was about 200 miles south of me but was 7.1, felt like a 6.8, lasted about 30 seconds, but i didn't lose power, many did, some homes destroyed, 20 families evacuated due to ruptured gas lines, a road destroyed. But all looks good here.
So....a valid argument to not just go led but go led on a dedicated low voltage wiring in the house, same as an rv, just use rv light fixtures and deep cycle batteries and a battery tender. We all know how to wire 12 volt leds by now. Make our own yard spotlights.
