Re: Realistic expectations for my house batteries

Electrical equipment needs to be made more efficient ... such as LEDs instead of heated filament lamps... and with the efficiency your boat will need less storage capacity. In addition alternate sources for generating amps should be advancing in design to produce more output... ie more efficient. Both of these will mean smaller storage batteries.

And you can always find a way to use less electricity. I haven't stayed on docks or in slips for 34 years and do fine w/ respect the electric power.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
