The best solar powered generator in Long Island won’t limit the type of devices and appliances that you can run.
The average home in Long Island and New York City uses up to 20kWh per day or 600kWh per month.
The best solar powered generators come in a few different configurations with the smallest storing 9kWh and the largest storing 18kWh. Larger non-standard configurations are also possible and are mostly used for commercial installations.
Because a home will typically only need to deploy power from the best solar powered generator in the evenings, a system of around 15kWh to 18kWh would be sufficient to power all major appliances and electronics for more than 12 hours. With moderate usage a battery backup could last for days, helping you to get through extended outages with lighting, critical appliances, and personal electronics all staying powered on.
Refrigerators and freezers can run without interruption when using the best solar powered generator. With the Generac PWR cell, up to 50A of starting current can be supplied, making it more than enough for even the largest appliances, including heat pumps or air conditioners.
