Solar Generators

AUTO START GENERATORS FOR OFF-GRID SOLAR

Solar power is a great idea when the sun’s shining. You can use your appliances safe in the knowledge that your solar panels are collecting power from the sun and converting it into electricity.

 

Here’s how it works:

Solar panels generate power all day, storing it in batteries, and then supply that stored power to your connected home. However when the weather turns and the solar panels are no longer creating energy, your household starts using the power that’s been stored in the battery, and the charge level gets lower and lower.

The two-wire auto start controller is connected from a portable or standby generator to the off-grid solar system control panel, external to the generator. This detects when the deep-cycle battery charge is low and turns on the generator to charge up the battery pack. It then automatically stops once the battery charge levels are topped up.

Why choose a 2-wire auto start?

A generator with a two-wire auto start option means you get all the benefits of solar power with the peace of mind that there’s backup generator power on demand. So if you get a prolonged period without decent sunlight to charge your solar set up, you’ll never be without power as the backup generator will have you covered.

Diesel v. Petrol which is the best?

Diesel Generator Pros

Cheaper to run, diesel engines last longer, hold their value for longer, simpler and more reliable engines.

Diesel Generator Cons

Diesel engines emit more noxious gases and more expensive to buy in the first place.

Petrol Generator Pros

Cheaper to buy in the first place.

Petrol Generator Cons

Petrol is way more volatile than diesel, more complicated engines with electrical systems and they don't last as long as diesel engines.
