Imported some; got some here

If I have my calculations right; somewhere around 3.7m so far
from ground zero to now (accounting for every single item; and cost of labor)

then there's a problem with your system. Has it been like that since the day you installed it? The battery is how many amps? Which kind of t.v are u using? Check the wattage of your tv. I've been using my inverter for almost a year now and it may interest u 2 know that its only 100a.h ups12-400mr battery, and my inverter is 1kva famicare, but all my appliances are energy efficient. My 43 inches led t.v consumes just 35watts, fan 40watts, with 3pcs of 5watts energy saver bright bulbs.

Fermicare ups, what of the make of the battery?

I came across this book online. It contains business ideas people can start with little or no capital. and it even has directory of money sources if you have your own business idea but you lack funding. I think it might help people looking for job

1000+ business ideas create confusion for the readers, imo. It gives the impression the information in that book has no depth. Just thinking out loud o... lipsrsealed

let's start with my street's transformer has been away for a month plus now,eaningmi either use gen or start looking for electricity supply which is saddening, due to the kind of place I live most people think I'm a Yahoo boy cos I don't go to work and I carry laptop up and down I was even accosted by men in black sometime ago its not easy bro its not ....


Bros why not am MPS and Solar?

I have a power bank setup that I bought from Leverage12 and it's been serving me well ever since although not always.

That is because it is charged by a solar panel. And once there is no sun, it doesn't charge. But on a full charge, it can take me through the day till evening.

I equally have a solar rechargeable standing fan that I charge once and takes me through the day so I try to limit the number of gadgets plugged in at once so that the battery does not go flat.

Once the laptop charges full, I put off all the sockets and allow the power bank to recharge. Once the battery is running down, I charge it again. That way, I'm always on.

I will later need to scale up as I want to add more laptops or desktop computers and more staff.



Pls don't throw desktop computer into the mix it will consumes too much power, buy laptop and find way to secure them.... Even engraving or chaining them down will do!

Epileptic power has really dealt with me as a freelancer. You can add to that epileptic internet service. I have lost jobs because I couldn't meet deadlines, after spending so much on data and fuelling the generator. And sometimes the generator breaks down too!
My take?
1. Get good power banks both for your phones/tablets and for your laptop.
2. Have a good generator on standby.
3. Don't accept jobs with crazy deadlines, even if the payment looks tempting.
4. Use a shared office location with regular electricity (if available in your area).
5. Get solar power/inverter if you can afford it.
6. Outsource jobs to other reliable freelancers
7. Finally, you can move to a place with regular power supply, if possible.


Where nice contribution bro....pls recommemd the MPS

Thats innovative. Moreso, it will help erase the sense of anonymousity a little. They will trust you more with thier job since your profile is right in their front.
What's the difference between Technical writing and Article writing BTW?

I write using my phone while I edit and proofread using my laptop.

I have been a student and just recently graduated. So, I basically charge in school and at my place.

If the job comes unexpectedly and don't have power on my phone or laptop, I go to school to charge.

I also have a power bank and a tablet as backup.

When I am at home, I don't have power issue. I put on the generator when in need of power.

I also don't take jobs whose deadlines I can't meet up with.

Talking about asking you more, how soon is the coy starting?
Are you starting in all the states across the nation at once? If not, from which likely States will the project start?

Am starting in Edo state but will be moving very fast to cover up the south south then to the south east followed by the south west. That is in electricity anyway. E-commerce and the rest are starting at once in all parts. In Electricity, it will not be as fast. The government might want to stop us and all those sorts of obstacles.
