I don't think you get the sense of scale with that question. I was quoted $28,000 for a solar PV system that wouldn't be close to handling what needs you listed and didn't include batteries.

The first step is to replace all your stuff with super efficient models as every $1 you reduce your electricity/month saves you like $3-$5 off the cost of a solar system. Then you better have some serious incentives as I see $$$... tens of thousands of $$$...

Contact a Solar Sales Dept & they can run the numbers & options for you
Roof & yard area/sun exposure come into play too
Are you in Florida ?

What's your avg. watt draw and
your peak watt draw?

How many consecutive cloudy days do you get in your area[97.5 percentile value]?

Per sq. meter of photovoltaic cells you might get 0.5 kwh per 24 hr. day. The avg. house needs 24 kwh per 24 hrs so it'd need 48 sq. meters of cells.

You mean deep cycle batteries?

Search google.com for the term "Net Metering".

With this the electric grid acts as your batteries, no batteries needed. A partial set of solar panels will work to reduce your electric bill as well!
