There are too many variables to come up with an accurate price, let alone do an educated guess.

I agree.

 

First, where is the home located? Is the home in the Philippines? Closest City and Province? That will give you an idea of the number of sun hours your area will get.

 

Then, you need to know the total watt-hours the specific appliances need to be run for that 24 hours.

An idea that just hit me, here.

 

It may be cheaper to go with some sort of generator back up, in this case. Of course, a one-horsepower split air-con is going to draw upwards to 3,000 watts to start, and about 1,000 watts to continuously run. So, the smallest unit I would even consider, would be a 5 kilowatt generator.

I just split some posts that were not really on topic, although were valuable.

 

Let's stay on options for the original poster, as this is a serious topic for this member.

You need to insulate the room as much as possible, and make it as small as possible, but I think you are looking at about 1 1/2 liters an hour for a small diesel genset.

 

I'd seriously consider building an automotive unit from an SUV attached to a 3hp electric motor and a 5hp diesel motor on the same belts, you could switch between the motors with electric clutches.
