Solar energy for On-Grid home, that works when grid is down

I would like to have an on-grid(or off w/e considering price and upkeep) system that can also sustain my appliances when the grid is down. I live in a zone where there are blackouts at least 4 times per month, sometimes 2-3 days(and nights) in a row. Moving is not an option. I also wish to run air conditioning 24/7 in at least one room. What would be the most cost effective solution for this?

If I had to "cut corners" or make sacrifices to lower costs, at least I'd like being able to have power for the fridge, and one power outlet for personal cooling fan a laptop during the day or the night, at times when On-Grid power is not available.
