Been living on my boat for 2 years at this marina. Summer is in full heat now. The price
per kWh has just gone up to 0.25 USD per kWh.
Although we have all the windows and doors open on the low humidity days. We installed a split unit residential air conditioner in the saloon
and master cabin
, as the occasional jelly fish
, or plastic bag would find its way into the strainer for the cruisAir
units, and shut down a few times a week in the marina shelter. Got tired of cleaning
out the Jelly Fish
My question is how those on live aboard keep their AC consumption
at a acceptable level. Last month my bill said I used 1,232 kWh. All lighting
is LED off the house bank. We have the inverter
that is powering the fridge, TV, computers
. The 1,200w solar panels
top off the 1,200Ah house bank during the day. We cook with LPG, and hot water
via tankless LPG water
I almost feel that 2 boats would use 1,232 kWh per month.
