Ah yes where we get even less solar hours and where most boats reside only on moorings.....

I also design and install energy management systems for a living, and do so for world cruisers as well as coastal customers. Many of them, whom I do work for, do not choose to have gensets either in-board or portable and they don't need them. The do just fine with a well designed system even without a generator. I also have a number of customers who leave the fridge running 24/7 on the mooring. While they do have LVD's installed it is pretty rare that they actually trip off at 12.1V / low voltage.
