Thanks to everyone for sharing their stories, keep 'em coming!
No one believes the theory except the one who developed it.  Everyone believes the experiment except the one who ran it.

System spec: 135w BP multicrystalline panels, regulated by Xantrex C40, DIY 8ft diameter wind turbine, regulated by Tri-Star TS60, 800AH x 24V AGM Battery, Xantrex SW4024

I think my main answer is for fun/challenge, but I guess part of the reason I later on went back and put in batteries was the occasional outage that we seemed to have around here.
