Finally, a solar generator with true
emergency backup power

Imagine if the lights went out. Not just for a few hours, but for days or even weeks? No power means no heat, no refrigeration, no communication, and for many, no running water.

How would you survive without power?

Most people are realizing the importance of having emergency backup power. That's why solar generators are growing increasingly popular.

However, most solar generators are built to handle basic temporary emergencies, and are sorely inadequate to handle any power outage lasting longer than a few days.

What does it really take to power basic living essentials
during a 1 week power outage?

This is the MINIMUM power requirements needed to power basic essentials during a 1 week power outage. 

This DOES NOT meet the optimal requirements to cover days with cloudy skies or storms, which will reduce the efficiency of your solar panels, making more need for battery storage.

How do the HomeGrid
solar generators compare?

OVER-SIZED
INVERTER

The size of your inverter determines what, and how many appliances you can run.  Our over-sized inverters give you the ability to power several major home appliances simultaneously for worry-free usage.

LARGE BATTERY
CAPACITY

The size of your battery bank determines how long you can run your appliances without direct sunlight.  Our large battery capacities allow you to use your generator during storms, cloudy weather, and at night, providing reliable, long term backup power.

MAXIMUM POWER POINT
CHARGE CONTROLLER

Our ultra fast Maximum Power Point Tracker charge controller increases the efficiency of your solar panels by up to 40%, compared to regular charge controllers, saving you money and making your system more compact.

EXPANDABLE

Because we oversize the internal components of our solar generators, they can be expanded to run your entire home by simply adding more batteries and solar panels.  Our HomeGrid solar generators are designed for true emergency backup power.
