If you’re worried about the rising cost of electricity or gas to maintain your home, or if you just want a back-up system in case of a power outage or civil unrest, then buying a solar generator would be the most logical thing to do. “Off-the-grid” living can not only save you money, but give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re not dependent on anyone or any institution for your survival.
Before you buy a solar generator however, you should understand a few things about the system. A solar generator works by converting solar energy into electrical energy. This converted energy is then used to power lighting, heat water, and run appliances. The general consists of solar panels (which must be placed where they will receive the most possible sunlight), a deep cycle battery for continuous use, and an inverter.
