An average hot water system for a 3 or 4 person home can easily consume 4 kWh of electricity per day alone. This can chew up a large portion of your off-grid power. Gas hot water may also not be feasible if your goal is an all-electric home.
Another option is solar hot water or, more preferably, a heat pump hot water system. These systems typically use around 60 to 75% less electricity than a conventional electric hot water system – as stated by sustainability.vic.gov.au
