Energy Efficiency is all about optimal and responsible power use and this is also exactly how one gets the most energy out of their solar generator.

Solar Powered Generators & Energy Efficiency, Go Hand In Hand

Aaron Wood | Solaaron

Over the past decade, the value, benefits and overall importance of energy efficiency to the general public has seen significant progress.  Driven by major advancements in technology, the realization of its economic benefits as well as a global desire to preserve the planet are some of the key ingredients in the way most people now approach how they handle energy in their lives.  This practice is beneficial to everyone and is particularly useful when applied to solar generators and renewable energy products in general.

Solar energy systems, technically known as Photovoltaic systems, are solar powered systems that produce electricity directly from sunlight. A solar generator, such as a SOLAARON solar generator, takes it a step further and converts this energy into usable power and stores it in a high capacity battery.  The added beauty of a solar generator is that its stored sustainable power is made accessible through its numerous electrical outlets, as well as portable with its integrated handles and/or wheels.  

This innovation meets the practical demands of the everyday off-grid consumer as well as those affected by power outages and those confronted with the realistic emergency scenario of limited to no gasoline accessibility. This is why more and more people are shifting towards renewable energy products and solar generators in specific over gas generators and other less energy efficient, non- renewable forms of power. 

Energy Efficiency is all about optimal and responsible power use and this is also exactly how one gets the most energy out of their solar generator.  Simply being more aware of one’s own personal energy consumption and how much we all waste unnecessarily is really the biggest step towards becoming more energy efficient and saving money.  This discipline applies to solar generators more than most examples because on a personal level you are involved in the process of harnessing, monitoring and consuming this energy.  This synergistic relationship automatically makes you responsible for generating the energy you personally need to sustain, often at critical times.

A few very basic energy efficient tips whether at home, work, off the grid with your solar generator or renewable energy product that can be easily incorporated into most people’s lives are as follows:

  1. Computers should be shut off when not in use.  Statistically this contributes to 3% of all energy  consumption in the U.S
  2. Chargers left plugged in while not in use consume power.
  3. Refrigerators with the door left closed do not need to be on 24/7.  They can be turned on and off intermittently or placed on a timer to save energy without spoiling food (Especially good strategy for off-the-grid living).  Refrigerators should also not be located in a sunny room or hot area near a stove or heater.
  4. Replace incandescent lights with LEDs or CFLs.  These lights consume much less energy and can emit the same amount of light.  Solar generators such as those found at Solaaron.Com are designed specifically with LED, DC and USB inputs.
  5. Use DC (Direct Current) appliances and devices instead of AC.  DC devices are generally more energy efficient.  They will also run much longer, consuming significantly less power in your home and from your solar powered generator.  DC devices such as fans, lights and even larger appliances such as DC refrigerators will make the most out of your renewable energy setup.
  6. Insulation of windows, doors, walls and attics will increase efficiency.
  7. Choose “Energy Star” products.  They are more energy efficient which will save you money on your power bill and they give you additional savings when filing your taxes.
  8. Go renewable.  Go green.  By incorporating sustainable energy products such as solar generators into your life you will surely not only save energy and money, but you will be helping to preserve and save the planet as well!

These are just but a few simple ways that everyone can take part in an energy efficient lifestyle.  And in so doing you begin to discover just how much more you can get out of what nature has given you.  From the wind to the waves to the sun, the world is constantly creating energy.  And by respectfully and masterfully harnessing this power you are in turn rewarded with its full potential.
