When your neighbors are putting up with power outages due to weather conditions, overloaded solar power inverter lines, or for any other reason, you will have an uninterrupted power supply. There is a sense of security that comes with having your own power supply that you control and cannot be turned off by a power company for any reason.

If you live in a remote location, solar power may be your most viable option for power. Generators are expensive to buy and expensive to operate. A solar system will provide you with power any time the sun shines and will store that power in batteries that can be used at times when there is no sunshine. A back up generator can be useful for times when you use more power than your batteries have stored, but you should not have to run it often.


The cost of a solar pure sine wave inverter system can vary widely depending upon your needs. A basic system can be installed for less than $500.00 complete with panels, batteries, charge controller, and inverter. This system is adequate for a small house or cabin to run lights, computers, and other low amperage appliances. If you just have to have your microwave oven or air conditioner, you will have to run a generator when you use them or plan on spending a lot more on your solar system. Even if you have to spend several thousand dollars on your solar system, you will still be ahead in the long run because it is a one time expense. Unlike paying an electric bill every month, once you have bought your system, there is almost no expense in its operation. All it requires is sunlight and sunlight is free.
