20 grand would get you a hell of an off grid solar and battery backup system!
I was at an energy supplier conference a couple of months ago and the guy I was sat beside did exactly that instead of paying the groundwork and connection fee to connect his newbuild.
I also heard of someone doing the same thing but with a couple of nissan leafs and ground source heat to go pretty much energy free.
I installed a 4.8kw battery backup back on 1st July and think Ive used about 5 units from the grid since then (my own fault - used immersion at the same time as other stuff). Off grid would be much higher cost than my roughly 5kw solar and battery backup but definitely worth looking in to.
Probably qualify for ROCs as well although at the low level.
