The rule of thumb used to be have 3X the stored capacity as your daily 24 hour requirements. We are currently into day 6 of cloudy weather. Climate change is playing hob with predictions based on historical trends.

I would suggest having a 1.5 – 2 kW genset to power a battery charger for when your battery capacity is exhaused. Keep in mind that discharging a battery very deeply causes permanent damage if left uncharged for even a day.

Get a power meter either AC or DC and measure your power consumption.
