There is an ad in the Countryside magazine for an Independent Energy System - looks like it's batteries in an oak cabinet. I tried to go to the web site listed (www.independentenergysystems.biz) and got kicked over to a solar power web site, and was not able to find information on the product. We're in the market for a generator, but this looks like an intriguing option - we wouldn't have to get a propane tank dug in. We experience power failures with maddening frequency and, being on a well, need some type of alternate power to get water for us and our critters. Has anyone had any experience with this type of backup system, or with this company? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
