Setting up a solar panel, charge controller/ regulator, battery storage and voltage inverter is a great way of creating an environmentally friendly power source with no day-to-day cost from grid supplied electricity. Solar powered electricity applications have a wide variety of uses such as camping, farms, electric fencing, mobile food outlets, signage, telecommunications, off grid lighting such as stables to list just a few examples. The inverter changes the 12 DC output from the battery to 240V AC which is the same type of electricity supplied by the mains sockets in your home/ business. Using the same system but on a bigger scale using more solar panels and battery storage you can even have an off grid solar powered workshop, office or maybe a holiday home by using an inverter.
