I'm just going to tell you my experience with what I bought from SHOP SOLAR KITS. I am almost 84 years old, live by myself two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, and am Homebound. I have lived through hurricanes, Nor'Easters and even a blizzard.
I have wanted Solar for 30 +years. Back then all available was Solar panels on my roof. This arrangement produced Solar power but couldn't save energy to use in a power outage. I investigated generators but they only work when power is out and requires fuel that is not free.
Today, with my Kit, I can gather Solar energy and store that energy to be used when needed. I wanted this for my entire home - heating and cooling both. Much research showed me that I am unable to afford that.
But I could not give up my dream of having some Solar. I found my answer with SHOP SOLAR KITS. I found a kit that I could afford and wire up all by myself. The Kits are wonderful. They have everything you need to hook up your equipment. There are great diagrams and also explanitory videos to watch. It's easy to order and I was given clear information about shipping. It was so easy.!
I really, really like my little setup. My generator has a screen that shows how much Solar energy is being captured and stored and how much energy is being used. My generator/ inverter has receptacles for DC at one end and AC at the other. I use both by perking my coffee with AC and charging cell phones, tablets, etc. with DC. Sometimes I watch TV using Solar…
