Solar Power

Solar At Home Or Business

The cost of purchasing a solar panel system is dropping but the overall cost such as permitting and installation (soft costs) still remain high.

The federal government is offering an easier path for the soft costs and incentives for using solar.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) devices, or solar cells, change sunlight directly into electricity. Small PV cells can power calculators, watches, and other small electronic devices. Arrangements of many solar cells in PV panels and arrangements of multiple PV panels in PV arrays can produce electricity for an entire house. Some PV power plants have large arrays that cover many acres to produce electricity for thousands of homes.

The first example of solar use goes back to the 1830s, British astronomer John Herschel used a solar oven to cook food during an expedition to Africa. People now use many different technologies for collecting and converting solar radiation into useful heat energy for a variety of purposes.

Harnessing The Sun

In case you didn't know we will lose the power of the sunwhen it burns out. Of course that is in about 250 million years. In reality it is an unlimited source of power. About - 173,000 terawatts of solar energy strikes the Earth continuously. That's more than 10,000 times the world's total energy use. How we choose to utilize this is of course the key. The old solar panels which were first used by NASA in the 50's were made of a very toxic film and were in use till the early nineties. We then got smarter and created a new series of solar panels that are ten times more efficient and much less toxic to the environemt. After all this is supposed to be a clean form of energy.

Buiulding Your Grid - Off Grid Or Grid Connected.

YTou would think that off grid would be less expensive but the opposite is actually the case. Permitting for off-grid solar if you can get it is cumbersome and expensive. The experienced installers are limited and the market for installation is tightly controlled. Of course you can do it your self.

DIY

To do it yourself requires experience with running electrical lines hooking it to an inverter and a fuzebox and a tranasfer point and storage and power conversion and the list goes on. Unless you have this experience the end result might not be pretty. A simple single or double panel system used to heat your water or power your porch lighs is okay but if you are trying to hook your whole house up better get a pro.
