I'll be using materials mostly obtained from China (helps to be near a port city) because all the stuff comes from there, anyway. I can get 500 watts of solar panels at 36V for $100 plus shipping. Charge controller from there, too. I can get two 12V 100ah li-ion batteries for $1000. *Two.* No brainers, really.

Yeah, yeah I know, buy American, American workers. No. Just no. I have made many decisions with those two things in mind, but at my age and income level, I no longer have the choice of doing that and frankly, considerations I must not utter, here, leave me apathetic about all that. I'm doing what's best for my family, and it's not open to debate. Besides, where do you think Renogy gets THEIR panels?

Another option to consider if you have heavily fertilized and watered your orchard of money trees. New battery technology. Prices will hopefully drop over time.

Light weight and lots of grunt.
Or just get the batteries from China.

Whatever you decide go 6 volt...

6 volt AGM so no watering 1300 bucks
6 volt lead acid if you want to do maintenance. 600 bucks
I would do that if it weren't for the fact I can get two 12v 200ah lithium ion batteries, complete with on-board battery monitors, for about $1.4K. Read it and weep, I'm just the messenger.

Sorry for being redundant.
