Fidge: 150-300W running and 600-800W when powering up.. sat 50W, TV 150-300W depends on model, lights if energy saving 10W x 3 Rooms, will be 30W, Appliances: If its an aircondition you will need additional 1300W for the powering up, instant water heater can be from 800W to 3000W.. So you need to know what they are. If you say I only need the lights, TV, Sat and Fridge, than you will be ok with 2kW. A 3kW genny will do it easy..

Consider buying a battery powered back up system, charging from the mains, no dirty refueling, no noise, no fumes and the best is you dont even see that there is a powercut as it kicks in in milli secs. connectabe to any circuit seperatly, so you are sure not to run the emmersion heater during a powercut.. If more power is needed you can extend it easy and even recharge through solar and/or wind..

ask Peter, he knows the job (www.kibsolar.com for pictures and information). if not, good luck while buying your genny

I have a Kipoor 3.5, cost 1030. It's ok until she puts the kettle on, or the immersion, then it dies. Runs everything else ok though. Know where theres a Kipoor 6.5 for about 250. Old and a bit scruffy but said to work perfectly. If it hasn't been sold.

Don't you have electric?



Have lived here for 4 years and even at the worst in 2006 got by without a generator. Never lost any food in deep freeze.



If you have electric I would seriously consider not wasting your money.

I was in Spanias, the engineering supplies shop (the other side of the road) near the old Homebase/Ikea.

They had a large range of gennys in there - high quality - also you get a guarantee - not like TRNC. For a larger item like this, you need a TC who knows the 'right people', so you can get it back across the border without paying duty!
