How long do you want to run for, when solar power is not available (overcast or night)? Why are you fixated on solar as a solution? What will you do when your laptop battery dies?

comment How best can I discover what is up with my electrical bill?
I used my kill-a-watt to take readings everywhere I could. Then I made estimates about light fixtures. I put these in a spreadsheet. By comparing with my utility bill, I knew roughly what the unmesurables were using. I periodically repeat the process and compare the numbers over time.

comment How many “zones” should my underfloor heating system have?
It would help to know some dimensions; the total square footage at least. Also, something about your climate and insulation, so we know how much load will be on the heating system.
