My system consists of a satellite dish, tri-pod mount and modem with
a wireless router connected to a laptop computer. What makes this "truly anywhere internet" is
that the system is totally solar powered!
Solar panels convert sunlight to electricity ... this electricity charges my
An inverter uses that battery power and converts it to 110 AC power ...
which powers my computers and the satellite equipment.
As long as the sun shines, the batteries get charged.
At night, when the sun doesn't shine, my battery capacity keeps everything
A balance needs to be established, of course ... If the solar panel can't
keep up with the power demand, I will add another panel. If the battery bank will not supply the
required capacity, I will add more battery capacity. If all else fails, I will start my generator
(although that is the very last resort).
