Rison mentioned the key parts./part : (the monaaaay $$$ )

I'm actually in the process of experimenting with solar.

Here's my story ;

I got 10kW of UPS' for free . This can be the start of a solar system.I've spent just under a grand wiring em (with return/DC lines)....

Here's my next costs :

Batteries : 1000$ at least.
Actual solar panels : prolly another 2000$....

-----

It's really not efficient to try to do 1 computer solar.You can , but the cost/dollar is harsh.I'm gonna try for 2 kw initially , and I expect no less than 5000$ cost.
