  • In summer, there are no problems with running minimal power during the night. AC is turned off at night, when it is cooler - and on cloudy days AC may not be needed. Good solar design is key.
  • Minimum night power - computer - 65W for Ryzen 3400G [1]. - with consumption between 45-65W [2]. Having several hours available - about 6 - would be optimal. 600Whr is perfect for a total load of 100W for 6 hours.
    • Note - this does not allow for major energy consuming activities at night such as cooling/heating, but still allows for a 5 minute shower with a superefficient shower head.
