Benefits when used with a solar powered home system
The Staber System 2000 also gives solar power users the most efficient washer available for handling their laundry needs. The System 2000 runs very efficiently, operating on only 110-150 watt-hours of electricity per wash load. It uses about 4-5 amps during the wash cycle, and surges to about 7 amps when the motor starts.
Unlike other washing machine manufacturers, the warranty is not voided when used on a solar power source. This, while using only 16.5 gallons of water per load make the System 2000 the most energy efficient washer available and the best choice for consumers living "off-grid."
