Have you ever wanted to set up a PV system but find the price prohibitive? I invite you to set up an inexpensive $240 complete solar power system for backup power, emergency power and camping. In a poo poo hits the fan situation, you're not going to have gasoline to feed your generator. PV is the only way to go for emergency power. Here are detailed easy to follow instructions for setting up your own budget solar power system:
I didn't expect to meet Tesla on the Nissan Leaf forum, actually. I think it was a mistake. You know, I think there's still no better alternative to Tesla except Leaf. Especially if it all comes to the price. I wish this Nissan model had a better look, but I still love its performance. I work as a taxi driver in my leisure time, so this car is perfect for riding across the city. Luckily I have enough spots to charge the car in my city. Btw, I found this flashlight a few days ago at one of the charging spots. I'd like to return it to the owner, but I don't know how. Any recs?
A portable solar generator uses solar panels to capture the sun's energy, and then stores that energy in a battery to be used later. Most solar generators are used for RV camping, boats, and as a backup power source in the case of a grid power outage.
