solar powered generator helped us through Hurricane Michael
A few months ago, I purchased an emergency solar powered generator from Be Prepared Solar mainly for use in case of a short term, occasional power outage. When Hurricane Michael Cat 4-5 came through Panama City FL on October 10, I realized what a smart choice I had made. We had no power for over 2 weeks, and after riding out the storm in our house, we were able to keep a large refrigerator and upright freezer going along with an occasional use of a fan and having to keep the septic tank sump pump running. The 2 solar panels survived over 150 mph winds, with wind speeds of over 220 mph recorded at TAFB and the Blountstown, FL airport. With the solar generator and a 2000 W inverter generator, we were able to last 2 weeks using only about 15 gals of gas, during a time when no gas was available locally.
With the use of our solar generator, we were able to stay in our home and start repairs immediately and prevent further damage. BePreparedSolar even sent me a heavy duty battery charger at no cost to help speed up the battery charging when running the gas generator. This is a great company that has truly provided wonderful service!
