Island solution

I need help please.

I am going to build a place on an island that does not have electricity, running water, telephone, etc. I rea[LIST] lly need input and tips as to what kind of water filtration to utilize (I will catch rainwater off the roof and store in 2 400 gallon tanks), and how to generate and store power (ie solar panels with battery storage). Also, what type, fuel (diesel,propane) and size of backup generator would you recommend?

Any/all information and tips are appreciated. When I thought about tackling this project, I thought who would be the hands on experts and of course "those living aboard" came to mind.

Thank you. You can post or feel free to send a response directly to my email at
