    Inverter/Charger vs Inverter+Charger+ATS

    Inverter/Charger looks neat, but I can't justify the cost (~$1200) for a 3000W one. On the other hand, a reasonable 3000W inverter + charger + Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) costs around $500-$600. I understand the ease of installation and fewer wires to have a inverter/charger, but the price...

    Would a 100Ah battery be enough? What do you use?

    After calculating our power usage (see attached image) I am wondering if we can get by with a 100Ah battery and equivalent setup with solar and inverter. After looking at our situation, should we go with 100Ah or go with 200Ah "just in case"?
