Powering my mobile home off the grid
I'm trying to figure out how best to power my mobile home off the grid without using solar-power. I've been trying to do some research but am a little in over my head and am having some trouble sifting through the information. I realize I can obviously use a generator and I think this is the best course of action, but still have a couple questions. Does the generator have to be running continuously to power things that need to be powered continuously like a refrigerator? Can I utilize a battery of some sort to run the continuously powered things and have the generator charge the battery? The mobile home is about 700 sq ft or so. It's my understanding I'll need a 8kw-ish generator probably?
any advice/suggestions greatly appreciated, thanks!!
