How to Make a Free Energy Generator at Home
With inexpensive parts and easy-to-follow instructions, anyone can learn how to make a generator for home
A small, green energy generator can prove to be beneficial for a
homeowner in order to power small DC appliances and devices.
Convenience can be found in having the generator stored inside the home to be used during a power outage or in
using it every day to reduce energy usage costs.
For up to $300, homeowners can purchase parts and assemble a small solar power generator for the home. Begin by
either making or buying a small solar panel. Ideally, a panel rated at 16-volts should be purchased for the
project. This can be obtained online or at local RV or marine supply stores.
The next step is to purchase a battery. Of course, a green, rechargeable battery would be preferable. So that
you can have continuous use of your generator, purchase a deep cycle battery, either lead/acid or gel. A 12-volt
battery will provide a sufficient amount of charge for your generator.
For safety reasons, especially if you have small children in the home, you’ll want to purchase a box to encase
your battery. This is to eliminate easy access for children and will cover up exposed terminals. A heavy duty box
made of polypropylene plastic and with a tight snap top should be sufficient.
To help monitor the charge of your battery, purchase a 12-volt DC meter. You need to ensure that your battery is
neither undercharged, nor overcharged. A charge below 50% can cause permanent damage, as well as your battery being
overcharged. The optimal charge rate that you will want to monitor and achieve is roughly 80% - 90%. Keeping a
charge in this range will ensure the longest life for your battery.
A DC input should be purchased in order to power DC appliances. Costs for a 3-prong inlet should be
approximately $10 or less and they can be found at any auto parts store. With this input, you should be able to
power DC appliances such as fans, lights, and vacuum cleaners. Check to see what appliances in your home will
require DC power.
Certain other appliances will require the use of an AC input. If your goal is to power any AC appliances, you
will have to convert the battery’s stored DC power to AC. To do this, you will need to purchase an inverter.
To determine that wattage you need to convert to AC, locate and count the wattage of each AC appliance that you
would like to power. Total up your wattage and look for an inverter with a matching wattage amount or greater. You
can locate and purchase inexpensive inverters from online sources.
Using a drill and screws, secure both the voltage monitor and the DC input to the top of your battery box.
Locate the wing-nut terminals on the battery. There is where you will use insulated wire to attach the meter.
Carefully handle one wire at a time and start with the negative pole. Next, use the same method to connect the DC
inlet to the battery, followed by the solar
Close the lid and secure it with either rope or a bungee cord. Place the solar panel in direct sunlight to
charge the battery. Typically, it will take up to three hours to charge a weak battery and up to eight hours to
charge a drained battery. Your system is complete.
