Choosing between a stationary solar generator and a lightweight portable option is not always a simple task. Our years of experience has allowed us to get an inside understanding of the generator market and what the average individual is looking for. By asking yourself a few simple questions, you can easily eliminate hours of unnecessary research and guesswork.
What are you looking to Power?
Our technicians receive countless calls daily, from customers looking to prepare for the worst. From powering a few LED lights, up to entire off-grid cabins and tiny homes. In an emergency situation, powering every appliance in the standard household is not an option. The best question to ask yourself is; “What items in my home are the most important?”
When a Portable System is for you:
One of the alluring aspects of a portable unit is the multi-functionality. Not only are these units great for power outages, but they can come in handy when traveling, camping, tailgating, or getting together for outdoor activities. The most common items include a few LED lights, a fan, DC coolers, smart devices, or a mini fridge. The largest of portable systems, typically max out at a single residential energy star refrigerator.
When a Stationary System is for you:
Stationary units are not only great for blackouts but can be used to reduce your monthly electric bills. These larger units normally do not cost much more than their portable counterparts, but can power a great deal more. For example, the Humless Off-Grid series can power multiple LED Lights, your Smart devices, a Television, Power Tools, Pumps, a full-size Energy Star Fridge and much more.
