It depends on the time frame of use. Plus if you are running lights, fridge, basic's. Or the hole sha bam of a small apartment. if that were the case then up grade to more panels and a much larger power inverter. I run on a solar array plus thermal not just heat but cold here.

Answer: 
For a small refrigerator you will need a pure sine inverter. I would recommend the 400W kit as a starting place. You may need to add more panels but it is impossible to say for sure without knowing your exact usage.

Answer: 
This system does not include batteries. It requires deep cycle batteries - we recommend the sealed AGM type, with a total amp-hour capacity of at least 100 Ah at 12 VDC, and a maximum of 200 Ah.

Answer: 
No, you would need at least eight 100 watt panels to provide that much power, and possibly up to double that in the winter, depending on location. Contact Grape Solar directly for a custom quote priced through your local Home Depot Pro Desk.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good panels but... These are excelent quality panels but best bought seperate - that is not as a kit. The kit is not complete. No wireing come to hook charfe controler to the batteries, nor from batteries to inverter, also the instruction hook up booklet is poor, and hard to understand if you are not an electrition. Next you can purchase a better quality charge controler and sine inverter for less than your paying for this kit. I have spent 50 dollars more for wiring and a in line fuse, etc. It does not say in Home Depot's item description that you will need to spend more money on additional items to hook up. I could have spent less and had more if I bought the panels from Home Depot but bought the charge controler and inverter somewhere else. I wont make this mistake again. November 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly as expected Packaged well, great quality, easy to assemble, works great! November 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Price for Package Everything was received and nicely packaged. Easy to install. August 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Units I didnt know much about solar an the use as far as appts , but when i was thinking about traveling in my travel trailer for several months this is what i decided on compared to a Honda Generator for 2 reasons, one the same cost and no gas to use or haul around and i love it, i made mine removable so there would be no damage during travel and it works great, When u think that u have a converter and now an inverter and u use 12 power and very little 110 power , this app is ideal, i did however upgrade to the 2000watt inverter after more review research. Oh an please note that the online purchase thru Home Depot was a breeze Thanks Grape Solar and Home Depot September 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product excellent support from grape, easy to install, really charges and maintains batteries fast. much better product than i expected.may expand for more power. inverter operates on demand which is a very important feature for my use due to variable power requirements. April 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 200 watt system works great Everything you need except the wire to extend from your roof to your controller is provided in the kit , you have to make the connections by soldering or crimping the extend wires from your panels to your controller, even on cloudy winter days here in Pittsburgh my batteries stay charged and I can run my computer and light all evening.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by The panels and inverter are great. My controler and charger didn't last two weeks. It was inside out the weather. February 19, 2013
