DIY $300 solar power generator

DIY 0 solar power generator

Frame2 Using parts easily available from your local stores, you can make a small solar power generator for $250 to $300. Great for power failures and life outside the power grid. Power your computer, modem, vcr, tv, cameras, lights, or DC appliances anywhere you go. Use in cabins, boats, tents, archaeological digs, or while travelling throughout the third world. Have one in the office store room in case of power failures in your highrise. I keep mine in my bedroom where it powers my cd player, turntable, lights, modem, laptop, and (ahem) a back massager. I run a line out the window to an 8″ x 24″ panel on the roof. Link.

    Having just gone through eight hours without power last night, I cannot overemphasis how handy it is to have a spare 12V PC case fan and fully charged gel-cell battery handy.
