Anyway you look at it, you will need more batteries whether 6vdc or 12vdc. Solar works perfect for me as I don't have to haul around gas, oil or listen to a gen running. Just my personal preference.
If you set up solar correctly, it will provide you with plenty of safe, quiet electricity. Solar is worthless without a way to store it [batteries].
I haven't turned on my converter for over 6 months and haven't seen my batts go below 12.2.
