I'm trying to calculate solar load for a holiday home and wondering what are typical systems in the area ? We'll be building near Blanca.

The base of my calculation is our current energy use in a very small 600sqft flat. This includes all household use ( tv, sound system, computers, ipads, cooking, washing, lighting etc. ) except heating which is not part of our use at the moment.


The total comes to about 12kWh / day. How typical this system would be ? Should I combine solar and wind or is it better to have one system to cover all energy use ?

I'd definitely add a normal generator as well when it's needed as a backup / alternative system.

EDIT : Anyone has experience with LG solar panels ?

Maybe you'd have more response on the House forum or some such, although I agree with you that likely someone here could answer. Not me, though, I'm on town utilities!

Well I was hoping to get replies from locals in the valley so all info would be specific to the place.
