Heavy Duty 1500 watt Solar Generator Build (coming soon)
Lots of people tell me they want to build a much more powerful solar generator than my suitcase style portable solar generator for their needs but still don’t want to pay $1000 for a store bought one with solar panels. I’ve been telling them just to scale everything up but now I want to build one myself and show the results, so that everyone can build one and follow my lead or learn from my mistakes. It will still be portable but meant to be wheeled around rather than be carried.
I hope this coming guide will show you how to build a 1500 watt solar generator that is capable of running a circular saw, high power drill, refrigerators, many lights and other heavy duty items you may need to help your family survive a grid down situation build a off grid cabin or house. Heck farmers even could use this that have to mend fences too far away to run extension cords.
Goals for the Heavy Duty Solar Generator:
Power real tools and higher wattage appliances in real life situations, be easy to move etc.
- Circular Saws
- Full Size Refrigerators
- CPAP Machines
- High Power Drills
- Air Conditioners
- Lots of lights
- Much More
Main Heavy Duty Solar Generator components
- Wheeled Toolbox
- Deep Cycle Battery
- 1500 watt inverter
- 75 watt solar panel
- charge controller
- AC Charger to keep it all charged and ready
- USB outlets are great for small devices like phones
- Battery Level monitor
Stuff I need to buy:
I have an 1500 watt Sunforce Pure Sine Wave inverter than came out of an RV I plan to use for this build
I’m thinking 1 75 watt solar panel or 2 50 watt panels that fold.
Will need a 10 amp charge controller of some sort.
Big deep cycle battery from Costco
