In a recent podcast I did with Ken from the Prepper Podcast we talked about grid down scenarios and what we can do about them. My plans are to build a solar generator that will run my well pump in a grid down event, and while this generator does not have the power to continually run it, I have set it up to be able to scale up fairly easily.
Keep in mind as you read this I am no expert, as a matter of fact I had very little knowledge other than solar panels collect energy, send it to the battery and you can turn on a light. There are quite a few article about how electricity works, and sometimes it’s too much information for my brain to absorb (repercussions of a misspent youth I guess), so I am going to keep this article a simple as possible and hopefully it all makes sense to you at the end. Don’t forget to download the power needs cheat sheet at the end, it will help you figure out how much stored energy you need and use on a daily basis. If you want more information on this you can listen to the Podcast Ken and I did, or you can check out a few of the podcasts ken has done in the past about battery banks. A quick side note before we get into this: Ken will also be on the next SPTV episode talking about alternative energy. Minn Kota Trolling Motor Power Center: The reason I purchased this box is because it had a couple 12 volt ports already wired in and ready to go. Thunderbolt Magnum Solar 13 Watt Briefcase Solar: Like Ken said in the Podcast start small, learn the process and then build bigger, so that’s what I did.
Cobra 800 Watt Power Inverter: Like I said, I wanted the ability to add solar panels to this generator so I purchased an 800 watt inverter. 100 Ah (Amp Hour) Deep Cycle Marine Battery: A 100 Amp Hour battery is pretty big when it comes to batteries, but you would be surprised at how quickly the energy in the battery can get used up depending on the appliance or tool being used. Like I said I am going to keep this as simple as possible, so if you need more information follow the links above, or leave a comment below and I will answer to the best of my ability. A solar panel collects energy from the sun, the wattage of your solar panels is how much energy you can collect from the sun…duh right? You will need to decide what you want to use the solar generator for and figure out how many amp hours you will need (download the cheat sheet) to get an idea about what solar panels you need. I kind of explained this above, but think about your future needs when you get the charge controller. The charge controller has positive and negative leads that come from the solar panel, and positive and negative leads that go out to the battery.
There are many different shapes and sizes of batteries, but I’m not going to go into detail about which one to choose, I’ll leave that to the experts. There is quite a bit more that goes into this but you never want to discharge your battery %100. A power converter takes the DC current from your battery and changes it to alternating current that household appliances use. There are pure sinewave and modified sinewave converters, this is less important than the wattage of the inverter. Now let’s get into how this all works, I’m going to try and make this as simple as possible so bear with me. I created the cheat sheet below to make it a little easier to make these calculations because my memory is not what it used to be, and there are a few calculations you need to know. My air compressor doesn’t tell me how many watts it uses, but it does say how many amps it uses. Laptop Example: With items that have a power supply you need to look at the output on the adapter. This one is fairly simple, my 13 watt solar panels will put out 13 watts of power an hour with maximum sun light. On a perfect day I can only get about 7 Amp Hours out of my 13 Watt solar panel, that means if I use anything over 8 Amp Hours per day I will be draining the battery. To some of you this might still seem a little confusing, some of you might think it’s fairly simple.

I don't believe that the end of the world will be the "end of the world" I believe it will be the end of the world as we know it now.


I looked into something like this, even purchasing a standalone Goal Zero Yeti type device. I LOVE that you showed the math about what a person might be able to realistically expect out of a solar panel. I think that portable solar charging systems like this have their place in prepping but people need to understand their limitations.
Thanks Patty, I just read your article and it’s great information for people who read this. As another point on the charge controller, make sure you also look at the amperage capacity as well.

The DuroMax XP4000S 4,000 Watt Generator is designed by the professional, for the professional.
This DuroMax Workhorse can operate anything from Air Compressors, Air Conditioners to Basic Home Power (lights & fridge). Safety: Equipped with Low Oil Protection, AC & DC Regulators, and a Spark Arrestor, Your unit will remain safe and in top operating condition. Peace of Mind: Rest assured, your buying a quality unit at a low price from one of the largest Generator Sellers on eBay. I purchesed 2 of these generators for my travel trailors, and I want to say that they are GREAT. A 5Volt Battery with a USB Port – There are a number of battery packs out there with an integrated USB port. The circuit box has a blocking diode which prevents power from draining from the batteries into the panel. The blocking diode in the circuit box sits between both outs and the panels as we didn’t want any battery connected to the panels to drain.
Could you please tell me which circuit box you are using in the Solar & Battery Hybrid example?
I’m a little bit confused how you are connecting the battery pack to the circuit box?
What about a long term installation for reading a remote water pressure gauge out on the farm?
Now that I have done this I have a better idea about watts, amps, volts and what makes it all work together. Everything I purchased for this solar generator was purchased with price in mind, I wanted to get this done for around $300. At .5 amps per hour in full sun these would take about 20 days to charge my 100 Ah battery.
Capacity Folding Hand Truck: This was about $25 at Home Depot and I got this to make it a little easier to move around.
The reason this is important is because everything else you buy need to be able to handle the energy the solar panel collects. But remember, you can always add more solar panels if your charge controller and inverter are large enough.
My charge controller can handle 400 watts, if I plan on going over 400 watts I will need to get another charge controller. In an emergency situation if all you had was a power inverter you could hook it up to your car battery to plug in a lamp…not very practical, but it works.
This can all get a little confusing but that’s why I started small, to get an idea about the process before I spent a lot of money.


The worksheet will calculate the Amp Hours all by itself, at the bottom of the worksheet it will show you a total of Amp Hours needed. I can get 7 hours of direct sun light on a good day so I could collect 13 (Watts) X 7 (Hours) = 91 Watts.
The definition of a prepper is "An individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances, without substantial resources from outside sources" Like the Government, police etc. The 1200 Watt Portable Generator with 12 Volt Dc is certainly that and will be a great purchase.
This Generator has everything a Great Generator needs, but at a price that everybody wants. We meet and exceed strict eBay standards while having the feedback that speaks volumes about these units.
They are not as quite as a 2000 watt honda, however we were very happy with how quite they were. I have not used it other then testing it, started on secound pull and that realy surprised me on a new eng. We decided to do a bit of testing and came up with three pretty simple ways to run an Arduino even if you aren’t near your computer or an AC plug. When the sun goes down or is obscured by clouds, the batteries will kick in and provide power to the Arduino.
Our batteries have lots more going on: separate power ins and outs, overcharge protection, short circuit protection, boost circuit to deliver constant voltage, etc.
We have made a number of changes in our V15 and V39 batteries to enable long-term remote power projects. I don’t know if I will be using this to go up and down stairs or drag across the dirt because batteries should remain upright, but it does help moving it around the house because the battery weighs around 75 pounds. Also keep in mind that you never want to completely drain your battery, it will decrease its life span. I’ll explain this in more detail below. If the grid goes down and you plan on running 2 lights, a heater and a small refrigerator you need to have an inverter that will handle that wattage all at once.
My 100 amp hour battery will be drained to 92% (100 – 8.33) if I run this 20 watt light for 5 hours. If the V15 or V44 does run out of power, they turn back on once they build up a bit of charge from solar or AC. Of course, this will only work when there is sunlight and your application can work with extended downtime.
Our auto-shutoff on our USB battery eliminates it as an option for longer term use, however.
We hope to have a couple up soon, but for now, here’s more detail on the Always On function of our batteries. Its rated for 3300 watts and I plugged in a 1500watt heater and a circular saw, together about 3000 watts and the generator had no problems.
The circuit box set has two outs so you can send power to another part of your application if needed.
The major downside is that there is a one hour shut-off in our battery if the load is drawing less than 50mA. Both the batteries and the battery case have built-in protections against overcharge and short circuit which simplifies the amount of supporting circuitry you need to do. This is great for preserving battery life in the pack but not great if you need to run the Arduino for over an hour.
