Maintenance for all is around 2k a year.
The money I spent on all of this I could have paid for on grid power for the next 50 years
It’s more about peace of mind than anything else.
Forgot one thing, I have a steam engine wood/ coal...but that for kick's but I could use it to make power if I wanted to..
