Wait... What? How does that even work?
@GigaByte4711 The fact that I will have solar panels generating power for nobody just above my head the whole day won't annoy me at all.
Getting a fully capable off-grid setup with batteries to keep things ticking is quite an investment though, and one I don't think I'll be able to do for quite some time.
I mainly jest, I looked at the price of getting something similar for my place, and it made me cry a little. I just have my UPS powering my server rack, modem and WiFi. There may be no lights or TV, but my laptop and phone can still browse reddit over WiFi!
@GigaByte4711 I have just one UPS right now, and that'll be on the fish tanks in case I need to run the heaters for a bit later in the day. 😀
Agreed. Pets always come first!
@GigaByte4711 should be fine, it's not going to be too cold tomorrow, but it's an open-ended outage window so I really want to have something on standby for the fish just in case.
They all got some fresh water tonight in preparation for a few hours without filtration.
In comparison, shutting down the household servers in the morning is a piece of cake to this.
@mike that's good to hear!
