Hi folks , I have been offered a house for rent way up in the mountains where I want to go to escape all the devolpment in the countryside. Problem is: a) No Electricity...............will have to use a generator. b) No Running Water..............but a well. c) No telephone line................will use mobile.......but hope I can get internet through sattelite dish. Now my MAIN problem is generation of power. I need to: Be able to run my PC, TV, Sattelite dish, washing machine and fridge. Do I need a generator that will go 24/7 for the fridge or could someone advise be how to get around that problem? What generator do I need?............and I cant afford one that costs a bomb! I mean I could say switch everything off while I use the washing machine or hoover and try not to use too many electric things at the same time. And how do I protect my PC/TV from spikes? But minimum I should be able to use lights, pc, TV and a 250w growlamp at the same time. How could I use my washing machine without running water? Maybe some of you are in the same situation? Love to hear from you.
