Powering Raspberry Pi with Solar Panels 24/7 - Web server, NAS, Torrent Downloader ....
What if we have a raspberry PI powered by green energy??
Since a very looonngggg time, i wanted to have a few devices to run through the solar energy and now, after gathering all the required materials; my raspberry pi B+ is under solar energy.
Materials that i’ve used:-
- Raspberry Pi Model B+
- 2 Solar panels (12v with 10w as output each)
- Solar charge controller
- Cables 😛
- DC converter (12v to 5v)
- Battery (12v 4.7Amps)
- UPS *** (if you need an invertor from 12v to 240v)
The schema diagram:-
This is my small contribution towards green energy.
Will try to charge mobiles phones with it, hopefully my little battery will be able to last 24hrs a day ^_^.
NOW, my web server is on free energy.
