Re: Realistic expectations for my house batteries

GC2 batteries are “Golf Cart” batteries.

I did a little more looking and found some Lithium as low as $1,100.

Batteries Plus sell lead acid GC2 batteries for $110 - $130.

So look at it this way, if I get 3 years from a set of batteries I get 30 years of battery per pocket book charge.

The lithium batteries would have to last 30 years to be equal.

That’s probably being a bit facetious and I’m sure there are other advantageous BUT...

HOLY COW THATS A LOT OF MONEY!
