The kit you refer to is far too small to power a house. You would want to contact Grape Solar for a custom quote through your local Home Depot Pro Desk. Solar systems typically have a better payback when used to offset higher-tier usage. Most customers do not have the roof space to offset all of their usage.

Larger battery-based off-grid and grid-interactive systems are complex, and are usually around twice the cost of a grid-tied system. This is due to the added cost of batteries, charge controllers and more complex inverters. Read Less

Eugene: Nice answer. Yet, to the common person who is not going to be using their battery consumption to run their whole house hold (ie, tv, stereo, fridg, water heater, furnace.. so on and so on). Yet, only needs something to keep their battery bank charged during large amounts of down time. This kit will do alright.

Answer: 
On an average day, this kit will produce about 1440Wh. This varies depending on your location, the tilt angle and the time of year. A load that consumes 1200W that you want run 24/7 consumes 1200 x 24 = 28,800Wh/day, which is about twenty times the output of this kit.

Answer: 
Although the inverter in the kit should be able to handle a 1/2 HP pump, the panels here will only provide an average of 1,440 watt-hours per day, which will only run that pump for a little over an hour. To properly size an off-grid system or battery backup system, we would need to know the following:
1. Your estimated daily power usage in watt-hours (we need exact daily watt-hour numbers from Read More
Although the inverter in the kit should be able to handle a 1/2 HP pump, the panels here will only provide an average of 1,440 watt-hours per day, which will only run that pump for a little over an hour. To properly size an off-grid system or battery backup system, we would need to know the following:
1. Your estimated daily power usage in watt-hours (we need exact daily watt-hour numbers from customers because many standard appliances and devices have widely variable power consumptions). Energystar’s yearly kWh ratings for fridges and freezers are also helpful to have.
2. Maximum inverter wattage and voltage required – what is the most power, in watts, that the inverter will need to produce, and are you using any 220 volt appliances?
3. Location or zip code of where the panels will be mounted.
4. Months of the year that the system will be needed (winter, summer, year-round, etc.). Please note that battery-based solar requires 2 to 4 times as many panels for winter production.
