While gas generators are effective for short-term power outages, their reliance on fuel makes them very limited, or simply useless, when it comes to long-term power requirements. This is why many people are turning to solar generators for more reliable emergency power. However, because many people don’t understand the fundamentals of solar backup systems (including solar generators), and how their various components should work together to provide a reliable system, consumers are being misled by false claims in solar generator marketing.
We are seeing too many consumers buy undersized or unreliable systems because they don’t know what to look for in a quality system.
When choosing a solar generator for backup power in emergency situations, it’s critical that you know how to choose a reliable one- especially when you are depending on the unit for survival. The quality and efficiency of your solar generator’s components will have a direct result in what you can actually run during these crisis situations.
Making an informed buying decision about a particular unit comes down to understanding 5 critical components. In this post, I will hopefully give you a better understanding of each element, how is fits into the overall performance of your system, and what to watch out for in the plethora of systems and choices out in the solar generator market these days.
