I am planning out what I would envisage for my next home and apart from having lots of home automation, one other feature I would like to include is someway to control the AC depending on the solar battery. I am not sure it is the best idea but what I am thinking so far is to have solar panels that charge a battery that would hold enough charge for about a day. Charge during the day in the sun, then expend the battery overnight until the sun comes out again.
At night I would like to have the AC going until the battery reaches say 10% or at worst case runs out of juice. I am guessing this might be on it's own circuit to the battery (if it is just to power off on 0 battery), that way I would need a switch to change from battery power over to mains.
Any thoughts or ideas? Am I stupid for thinking about this (don't answer this JV)?
