Its a 120 volt output. So is your oven top 120 volts?

The Duracell Powersource has nothing to do with solar or wind generation.

Going off grid is simple and easy.
Keeping the lights and other things on, when you want them, is a lot more difficult.

Get a Propane powered Refrigerator/Freezer unit. Lights do what the Amish do. Use Propane for lighting. You are going to be spending a lot up front to go off grid. In turn the return is very minimal then what you expect it to be.

Most off grid users up in Alaska use Gensets & batteries for power. Wood for heating, Propane for cooking. Water is just going to the stream to fill up containers. Watch Railroad Alaska to get an idea how those living in the back areas of Alaska are doing it. http://www.destinationamerica.com/tv...ailroad-alaska
