    I was looking into building a solar array to charge my bike and run an automated greenhouse and some other water and led lighting features,
    so I checked into solar inverters and grid tie-ins/battery chargers. Just curious about price and power output.
    When you do go solar, that would be a good video project as well.
    Right now it is 8kW continuous, 10kW peak.

    Wow! That sounds like a lot to me. Why would anyone need any more power than that? I think I could run my entire home, which does have a lot of gas appliances, on 2kW, maybe less.

    2000 watts barely runs a blender. Hell, my Kuerig uses 1400 watts just to make a cup of coffee. Add a refrigerator/freezer and other appliances and 2K watts is nowhere near what Im using.

    My 30-year old refrigerator uses 150 watts when it is running. No doubt my dishwasher uses more than that, but I only operate that once every couple of weeks. I do 2 loads of laundry a week and my dryer, furnace and stove all run on natural gas. My lights are all LED and I don't think my TV or computer use all that much power, either. I also have a microwave, toaster and hot pot, but those are only used maybe once a day for a few minutes each. My most recent electric bill shows my power consumption for the month to be 168 kWh.

    To be honest we didn't plan to eat it, we were just planning it to be a prop and expected it to be terrible. The fact that it was edible was just a plus

    Our shop runs on <700 watts most of the time even with all of our computers going.

    also the standard wall outlet will only do 1100 to 1500 watts. So blenders do not take 2kW to run unless it is an industrial 240vac blender. Even most space heaters are about 1500 watts. Also, there is a difference between Peak spikes and continuous. The average house only has spikes of 6-7kW for very short periods, and only when we are being particularly first world.

    Most of our country is also pretty wasteful, check out the data from the Energy Information Administration.
