It’s always good to have a backup in life, especially during a power outage. That’s when we look for some backup power that doesn’t take us off the track of our lives. Gas generators can solve this problem, but they are noisy, emit a bad smell, require a safe place to store gasoline, and most importantly, they contribute to climate change.
Therefore, portable power stations are more recommended. Solar generators are clean, easy to use, do not require fossil fuels, and are getting cheaper and cheaper as solar technology improves. They are especially useful in emergency situations when other fuel supplies are cut off or difficult to obtain. Solar generators typically capture solar energy with portable solar panels, convert it into electricity, and store it in a portable power station for later use.
SOUOP, which focuses on environmental protection, is a professional solar generator manufacturer, so what is the most suitable generator for home use? First, estimate how much electricity you’d need to run your home’s appliances, laptop, and TV in the event of a power outage. This requires you to identify some commonly used appliances in your home to determine the solar generator you need.
Once you know how many watts you need; consider other features you want, such as USB charging ports and rechargeable batteries. You can avoid breaking your budget by choosing a generator with features that make the unit more efficient, not more expensive.
What is a solar generator
