SunZilla: A DIY Solar-Powered Generator To Go


SunZilla is a portable solar generator designed to replace conventional diesel generators in remote areas or outdoor events it travels in a box and the solar panels just unfold like a flower but it’s even more it’s an open source framework which allows you to develop your own modules We put all the different functions like inverting from DC to AC, for example we put them in standardized boxes which can be just plug-and-played to each other All the plans are open and you know exactly what you have to do to make a module which fits to our system and you can even adapt the code to make it perfect to your needs It’s tackling 2 problems The social problem is that there’s lots of people in the world that don’t have access to energy you don’t have to bring a whole grid to them but you can just bring SunZilla Of course, the environmental impact is there’s less use of fossil fuel the diesel generator emits noise and air pollution and SunZilla does not in the bigger picture it’s about making people independent again from big power suppliers we want to create grids from the bottom and not from the top of course, I could go to a big company as an engineer, I would earn a lot of money but this is not what I want I want to leave my footprint – a positive footprint – in the world and use the time I have in my life to do something great and make the world a bit more sustainable I was always looking for a project or something where I can put my energy in which will provide a benefit to the environment or to people, in general, in the world for me, it feels very self-fulfilling to know that we work as a group and we are deciding on what we do and why we do it You feel connected to a bigger community of people who try really hard to work on this issue it feels like, okay, we are going in this direction and maybe we’ll arrive there and could contribute something to it, too life is about learning and with such a project learning never stops

    I actually have a Lithium battery set with an inverter & charge controller at works. I could use your design, too. I'll just make a commercial thing later with rounded edges & stuff. The proto is just for my place, obviously.
