[tog] UPS for my House / Off Grid System

Hi All

I am looking to build a off-grid system for my home.  In reality it would
be more like a UPS, which sits between the main power line and the house.
My plan is to try and feed in wind and solar energy to the system so that I
can save money and the environment.

If anyone has built such as system can you let me know.

The UPS would power the house and would be charged by the wind/solar system
during the day, and at night I would consume the power once the power got
too low it would switch back to the main power.

Also if anyone thinks this is unworkable let me know.

I am not sure if wind-mills can be set-up in urban settings putting it on
the roof might work but may not be high enough.
