So I've been thinking abut going off grid for a while but the main thing that puzzles me is I want to have a low power desktop that I build myself but I keep running the numbers and having something that uses so much electricity is kind of impossible. Anybody have any insight that I haven't thought of? I figure that the average desktop uses about 200 watts a hour maybe and then there are phantom loads. So info would be cool. Thanks.
I'm just not a fan.
