I have a wind and solar system, batteries and a 5000W inverter. You cannot run, electric stoves, water heaters or dryers. They are just too big of a drain. Smaller appliances like microwaves, toasters, toaster ovens may be used one at time, sometimes two, if your system/inverter is large enough. Even though your inverter says its good for 2400 watts it is just like running a generator. You must take into account the start up load as well as the running load. Just as important, large appliances drain batteries very quickly and in almost all home systems, faster than the batteries can be recharged. On a strictly solar system, there is the added problem of no recharging at all during the dark hours. As mentioned before, a propane stove is far superior to electric and not just because they don't use electricity.
