Best Answer

A solar powered generator involves a photovoltaic module, a deep cycle rechargeable battery and a power inverter. The photovoltaic module takes in sunlight and converts it to a DC or direct current and this is stored in the battery. The battery can then be used to power household appliances by taking the power from it and converting it to alternating current or AC with the inverter. The plug in the generator puts out AC for an appliance to use.
