Let me start from the beginning. A few years ago I saw the infomercial about a portable solar generator on TV. It intrigued me.
I live in the Houston, TX area, which is a major hurricane zone. In the back of my mind I had always wanted some kind of power source to run some essential household appliances and charge batteries for my laptop, cell phone, etc. When I saw the solar generator on TV from MySolarBackup.com a light, sort of speak, went off in my head that this could be what I really needed.
After seeing the infomercial on TV a portable solar generator made perfect sense. But I needed more information. I visited their official website to get more details.
Having lived in a hurricane zone for as long as I have I knew that some times we would have to evacuate. I always thought that a gasoline generator that you can buy at HomeDepot would be simply too big and heavy to take in the car for a power source.
But the solar generator 1800 is completely collapsible and easy to put in the truck of my car if we have to bug out. It is light enough that my wife can easily move it around or pack it up.
Sometimes you don’t want to advertise you have power. With a gas generator everyone in the neighborhood knows you have power. During hurricane Ike I heard of several home owners who had their noisy gas generators stolen after they had turned them off for the night and gone to bed. That isn’t a problem with a solar generator.
Like I said. I was fortunate to have ordered my portable solar generator from MySolarBackup.com before Ike hit. It wasn’t free and definitely cost more then a gas generator at HomeDepot. But about a month after hurricane Ike was over my friend who bought a gas generator got his credit card statement. He spent over $800 on gasoline to power his gasoline generator for the two weeks we were without power. That was just for two weeks!
I quickly felt a lot better knowing I could use my power source for an indefinite amount of time without having to pay $4.00 a gallon for gasoline. The value of owning my Solar Generator 1800 really became apparent to my friend and to me.
I look back on the day I say the solar generator on TV and I could not be happier with my purchase from MySolarBackup.com. I use it all the time. It is increasingly simple to use, quite, convenient to move around and cheap to run.
