How does a solar generator work?

Solar Charging Cable MC4 to XT60



Solar cell generators work by harnessing sunlight to generate electricity and storing it in batteries for future use. Here's a more detailed breakdown of the process:


A solar panel converts sunlight into DC electricity and passes it through a charge controller.


The charge controller regulates the voltage prior to storage to ensure the proper amount of current flows to the battery.


The battery stores all the solar energy for later use.


The inverter converts the energy stored in the battery into AC power used by most appliances and devices.



Who benefits from using a solar generator?


Solar generators generate electricity without burning fuel, which is ideal for those looking to reduce their reliance on gas-fired generators, deal with blackouts and other outages, and have a reliable backup power option in case of emergencies.



You can use the energy stored in a solar generator during a power outage, to charge devices while camping, and as an energy source for RV or boating trips. Essentially, a solar backup generator is perfect for a variety of real-life situations, which means it's not just for emergencies.



People who want to make greener choices


Traditional generators use fossil fuels, which pollute the environment. If you are aware of the dangers these fuels present, a solar backup generator is ideal for you.



People are bothered by the sound and smell of traditional generators


Traditional generators are noisy and smelly because they are internal combustion engines that run on fossil fuels. Over time, even with proper maintenance, they can get noisier and smellier. If you are looking for a generator with zero sound and zero smell, then solar generator will not let you down.



People who like to spend time outdoors


If you love the great outdoors but still want to carry some modern perks, you'll find a solar generator helpful. For example, solar cells can come in handy during camping or boating trips to ensure you have constant power. You can string lights after sunset, charge your phone, run small kitchen appliances, and whatever other conveniences you've had to do in the past.



Premier Cable offers a wide array of cables to help you connect your solar generator together.
