Starting the day with a power outage.
@lohang Do you use/have battery backups?
I don't have any backup other than a UPS I use for the computer. I am looking to get a power inverter installed.These things are extremely expensive here so we tend to postpone doing it each time. Besides I don't have the technical knowledge to decide which option is the best : a solar system or something else...
@lohang We can't decide if we are going solar or wind. Wind is probably the better choice here but more expensive. Also we are planning to sell out and go rural. Where we move will determine the choice too. But like you said either one is quite expensive
@ragamuffinjim I decided to give it a try and assemble a solar system that would provide enough power to run my laptop and four or five LED lamps. It isn't that expensive if you do it yourself.
@arunisaac This is very good to know. Do you use solar power to charge it, or AC power?
@arunisaac Awesome! The main obstacle I had against my self-hosting attempts is power outages. I am now tempted to give it another try with this kind of a setup. \o/
