Have you actually applied and approved for this? do you need to have a proper solar system in place (permanent not temp?)

I cant imagine it would be approved for that. It only has a max solar input voltage of 150v, a grid-tied system is much higher than that.

Electric tools in places that doesn't have power yet and diesel and related noise is avoided.

It has enough power to support a gas furnace or a fridge. You can use it with a single solar module and use regular power outlet to keep it charged as net-metering solar Pv system supplies excess power to the grid

Has anyone actually done this, or is this just all theoretical assumption?

It would work but not for long, this is more for when the power goes out you can charge your stuff and run a couple lights.

Battery is 2000 watt hours so if you plugged in a fridge that uses 1000w the battery would only last 2 hours a gas furnace would run for 3-4 hours.

Does that assume continuous power draw? I would expect the cyclic nature of fridge/furnace to last a day or two.

Also don't forget about solar PV and even generator you can get if there's not enough sun. On annual average you get 4-5 hours of peak-sun daily. It means your 1kW solar PV (only 3-4 modules) can provide at least 4 kWh daily from the sun. (5kW -> 20kWh)
