All of us are familiar with the situation when the house is bereft of any form of energy and it is dark everywhere. To avoid this unpleasant happening, you can make a solar-powered generator that works due to the solar panel that is mounted to it. That generator will give you an opportunity to have all electrical devices working even if the electricity was turned off.
To make a generator you will need a solar panel. You can get it at any electrical store nearby or order it in the Internet. While buying from the net the solar panel can cost even less and there you for sure will have a great choice. The other thing you should have to build a solar-powered generator is the gel or any other deep cycle battery.
If you want your solar-powered generator to work even at night then you need batteries to keep the charge. Remember that your generator will be situated in the house. If you live with children, it must be protected as kids can easily touch it and then receive a shock. In order to avoid such mishaps you must get the box for the battery. It will cover the batteries and the wires and will keep the members of your family safe.
After the batteries you have to get the DC-meter (direct current meter). You can find it in the supermarket or in the electronic store near your house. A DC input will also be needed as this is the appliance which will make the electrical devices in your house work. You will boil some water and do some other simple things even if the light is turned off.
Of course you have lot of devices at home and in the case of the darkness all over the house you need all of them working. That’s why for sure you have to buy the inverter. The inverter will convert the solar energy into the electricity and thus all the electrical appliances in your house will work with the help of your solar-powered generator.
The generator will be able to work in the darkness only if you have charged it in advance. If the battery is dead, it must stay in the open sun for about 8 hours. If it is weak, but not dead, then it has to stay in the sun about 3-5 hours. When you charge the generator, remember that it must be situated under the straight rays of the sun. Only in this case it will be charged in the proper way.The solar-powered generator will make your life much easier.
