Your Questions About Solar Generators
How do I build a solar generator for my cabin?
We don’t use much electricity, so we don’t need anything too heavy-duty. I would like to run our cabin on solar electricity, but am having trouble getting help as far as what size battery, inverter, solar panel I will need. I know I also need a regulator, but don’t know anything about them either. From start to finish, what do I need and where can I get all he parts I need at a reasonable price? Is it cost-effective to buy an already put together solar generator?
The stuff they sell seems to more or less live up to the specifications.
If you decide to buy discounted panels be a little careful. It was my experience that the specifications overstated the performance by 50% to 100%
BTW – the best investment you can make is a good recent book on the subject. Anything copyright before 2007 is probably obsolete.
Does anyone have any leads on backup solar generators?
I want to purchase a solar powered backup generator in the event that we have a power outage. I don’t want a gas/diesel generator as I don’t want to have to fight everyone else to get gas for a generator. I’ve been only able to find one solar generator that would seem to work for my home. Any suggestions?
I’ve just started looking at solar myself, here’s a link to a site that seems to have some reasonably priced systems:
Maybe there will be information that will help, I’m a novice myself so I’m not sure what exactly you are looking for.
