Solar Powered Generators vs Gas generators
In Part 1 we began to compare solar powered generators vs. gas generators. We realized that most people react to the initial upfront cost of a solar generator is more than a gas generator but in the long run a solar generator pays for itself and can provide free energy from the sun for a lifetime. Because a gas generator requires fuel, it will always cost money to run it. In part 1 we saw that the main disadvantage of gas powered generators is, well... gas!
Gas is not only an added expense but it is also a dangerous hazard. Storing a flammable liquid is only safe with proper precautions. And let's face it, most people do not take the proper precautions. Besides the hazards of storing fuel, there are also dangers associated with burning fuel. Since gas generators burn fuel, they give of noxious fumes. For this reason a gas generator can never be used indoors. The fumes are deadly and the risk of an explosion is too great to risk. This severely limits the applications that can use a gas generator and also means it must be kept outdoors. Keeping a generator outdoors will rapidly increase the rate of decay and corrosion, also limiting the usable lifetime of the generator.
On the contrary, a solar generator can be kept indoors. Only the solar panels need to be in direct sunlight. Because the solar power generator is not exposed to the elements, it will have a much longer lifespan than a gas generator. Because of the awesome fact that solar generators do not use gas, it also does not give off noxious fumes or any fumes whatsoever and can be left in the garage year round to power garage appliances, like washer, dryer, hot water heater, etc., cutting down your electric bill. This greatly adds to the value of a solar power generator because they can be used all year round at times and places that a gas generator cannot.
