Depends on the AC and size of the house, battery bank, and panel output.Unless there has been technological changes, ac's won't work with solar. I grew up in San Diego and never had air conditioning in the 41 years I was there. But the farther you get away from the coast, the hotter it gets.
100k seems light. I have a lot in Utah that I want to develop. For starters, looking at 100k to get driveway, well, electricity and septic. I realize you don't need electricity but solar definitely has a cost.
It'll be tight. Is it possible to up the budget and make a nicer place?
My dad built a small cabin running off of 6 panels and can run the AC unit all day with only 2 batteries.
Fortunately the hottest days are usually the sunniest too.
He also has a 220 gal water tank with a 12v pump for water pressure. Runs off of it’s own deep cycle battery and panel. Fills the tank up once a week.
