Problem

The costs and environmental concerns related to the burning of fossil fuels has led to an increasing interest in alternative power generation systems based on inexhaustible resources, such as ambient wind and solar energy. Although a wide variety of solar energy systems have been developed, harnessing wind power effectively has been problematic. Static wind-driven turbines are often facing in the wrong direction to make full use of the wind's power and such systems tend to be very large scale and are extremely difficult to transport to new locations.

Solution

The portable wind and solar power generator is a portable system for charging rechargeable batteries and providing power for external devices from ambient wind and solar energy, thus providing a portable, more efficient way to harness both sources of energy.

Abstract

The portable wind and solar power generator is a portable system for charging rechargeable batteries and providing power for external devices from wind and solar energy. The portable wind and solar power generator includes a housing for receiving at least one turbine and at least one electrical generator. At least one solar panel is mounted on the housing. The housing is rotatably mounted on an upper surface of a hollow base which houses at least one rechargeable battery. The at least one rechargeable battery is in electrical communication with the at least one electrical generator and the at least one solar panel for charging thereof. A wind vane mounted on a rear end of the housing causes ambient wind to rotate the housing, with respect to the hollow base, such that the ambient wind impinges upon the at least one turbine to drive the at least one electrical generator.
