I recently started building a solar generator.  This page is contains an overview of the project and lessons learned.

Why did I build a solar generator?


Here are important parts that you will want for this project.  We will go over each tool in more depth later, but this is provided as a convenient list of links to their resources.

  • Lithium phosphate batteries
  • MPPT Solar charger
  • DC to AC inverter
  • Battery management system
  • 2 gauge cables/wire
  • Fuse for inverter
  • Fuse for solar charger
  • Bus bar to consolidate negative cables

A list of useful skills:

  • Basic math
  • Basic wood work

Under construction, more to come.
