Solar Power or the Use of Generators

One way to effectively address such problems is by using solar power over fasil fuels or burn coal. As your driving thru your town take notice in the larger business building. Do you see Solar panels on the roof or lawn? Maybe even wind power.

What if your power fails?

many households and establishments Use a Solar aray to back up their power supply, Power failure happens in the most unexpected hours and so having a Solar battery back up can provide the needed power.

Portable Solar panels are a good way to help during a power outage to supply some means of electricity to power a fridge or freezer long enough to wait for the return of power. And you can even find large generators that provide emergency power.

But if you want to help in reducing pollution and other environmental problems, why don’t you opt for solar power instead?

But Solar is costly?

The initial cost is a very important consideration but you will also need to look at the benefits that you can gain in the future. Installing a viable solar power system can be quite expensive than just purchasing a portable generator.

However, The cost of solar equipment has come down to a more affordable balance over last 5 years or so. Take a look at this example form Amazon.

Once you’ve installed the power system, you can enjoy free unlimited power. Maintenance is minimal and you will not spend huge amounts money on its general maintenance.

You don’t need to buy fuel just to run the system because the energy of the sun fuels the solar power system. In a portable generator, you will need to buy fuel to run it and so you will continue to spend money to enjoy power supply.

Is a generator easyer then a solar system?

Yes! Generators can be purchased easily, online or locally, and so it’s quite convenient to obtain them as well as to use them. However, On the other hand, solar power is not that convenient to install and purchase as well.

The market for solar power has grown because of the technological advancements. As a result the best way to obtain solar power kits is through the internet. I believe this is where you can save money on the needed products from panels to inverters.

you settle for a little bit of inconvenience especially if huge benefits are involved? Besides, after the installation of the solar power system, you don’t need to monitor it often. Unlike in generators where you will refill the fuel, change the oil and filter, two times servicing in a year. The solar power system can last up to twenty years even with minimal maintenance.

Both solar power and portable generators are efficient. However, when it comes to cost-efficiency, solar power is ahead. As long as the sun shines, energy can be generated.

The system can also store energy so that it can be used at night or during rainy days. In a generator, you will need to re-fuel from time to time. You will need to pay for the fuel every time. Sunlight is free but fuel is not and so the cost efficient option is very obvious.

Is Solar Dependable?

In terms of dependability, solar power and generators are almost the same. Solar power is best used in places where there is bright sunlight all throughout the year. If there is periods of bad weather in any length, all the stored power can be consumed. Generators can be used whether it’s sunny or rainy but the problem lies with the source of fuel. If you can’t refuel the generator, it will not work.

It’s your choice whether you will use solar power or a portable generator. It all depends on your capacity to pay for the device. I encourage you to research more about in stalling Solar for your uses, Home, Camper or Just for your landscaping. There are many uses and benefits.
