That’s a good point. A back-up generator that stores charge for *any* energy source you use is a good idea, but especially so when it comes to solar. I personally wanna built a home that relies on electricity as little as possible (wood heater and biomass, cob housing with tadelakt plaster, above ground rain water cistern with an above-ground water pump, electrical option but also manual option, and many gravity filters, wood stove and clay oven, etc). And then just have a solar / wind or other renewable option, plus maybe a backup gas powered generator, to have for optional electricity for things. My idea is make the home as easy to live in if SHTF and electricity becomes scarce— so not reliant on electricity— but is compatible with electricity when times are reasonably stable (“reasonably”— the egg hasn’t cracked wide open yet but it has a few hairline fractures and it’s leaking man 😂)
