We have both...
3, 75-watt BP/Siemens panels and Four Winds wind gen.

Rarely do we run the engine for power... we've bene moored for almost 2 weeks now and have run the engine once and it was 3 straight days of wind-less grey...

We have Glacier Bay reefer & freezer, a small tv & dvd that we watch regularly (ashamed to say but family tapes some good programs off of History, Discovery, etc.)

We do not want for power.
