Solar + Battery for new construction off the grid - feasible? Possible?
Close friend of mine has property in a somewhat rural area and is in early planning stages for building a hose. There's currently zero services at the property.
For all heating and cooling, including heated floors, he's likely going to be doing geothermal.
For electrical, he loves the idea of using solar in addition to the grid. However he's learning that the cost from the local utility to get electrical service to his property is going to be over $30,000. If a minimum of $30,000 is going to be spent, I start to wonder if it's feasible or even possible to put that towards solar and batteries and have no electrical service at the property from the local utility.
Now, I assume a lot of work will be needed to get an idea of what capacity would be necessary. I'm curious about a product like the Tesla Powerwall, though not sure if it's even officially available in Canada.
If this is feasible at all - multiple power walls and many solar panels, I imagine it will be quite expensive. Curious though - any thoughts how how feasible or even possible something like this would be?
Any feedback is appreciated!
