Visit http://www.diygreenenergyguides.com/earth4energy-diy-solar-panels/ Or, Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8e4jeMapnKs This video demonstrate how a grid-tied home solar power system works. It shows the exact process from the moment sunlight hit the solar panels, the actual power conversion and how the DC(direct current) electricity from the panels converted to AC(alternating current) for home use, as AC is the compatible form of energy for most home appliances. 10 Myths About Home Solar Power System Myth #1: Home Solar Power System Will Be More Efficient, Should You Wait? Fact: These days the media loves to hype emerging technologies, but the truth is we're still using the same solar technology we were back in the 1960's. Since then, solar has become only moderately more efficient (unlike computers or cellphones which experience dramatic improvements in short periods of time). Myth #2: Solar Power Does Not Work In Cloudy, Foggy and Cool Places Fact: Solar panels work just fine in ambient light and will produce significant energy in the fog or on overcast days. In fact, solar panels are actually more efficient at cooler temperatures than hot ones Myth #3: Home Solar Power Energy Is Stored In A Battery Bank Fact: Nearly all modern solar panel systems are grid tied which means they're connected to the conventional electricity grid. Your system generates power during the day and excess is fed back into the grid through a system called net metering. When this happens, your meter spins backwards and your utility company credits you for that power. Myth #4: Solar Panels For Home Needs Constant Maintenance Fact: Solar panels have no moving parts and do not require regular maintenance. Typically the recommendation is to hose off the panels once a year or so, but many panel owners actually never clean the panels and instead rely on the rain to do the job for them. Typically this will cause only a very slight loss in efficiency (about 5%) over the lifetime of the panels. Myth #5 : Home Solar Power Panels Caused Roofs To Leak, Deteriorate or Even Collapse Fact: Solar panels actually protect and preserve the portion of the roof they cover, but don't take our word for it. Check out this picture of solar panels that have been through a hurricane. If there's ever a problem with the roof that needs to be repaired, panels can easily be removed. Myth #6: Home Solar Power System Is Very Expensive and Will Never Pay For Itself Fact: Perhaps one of the most unfortunate solar myths is that it's only for rich people or environmentalists, when in reality many homeowners choose to go solar simply because it eliminates their big monthly electricity bill. In fact, solar is a very wise choice for people who could actually use the extra couple hundred bucks a month that they're currently paying in power bills. Myth #7: When Grid Power Is Out, The Home Can Still Have Power Using Solar Energy Fact: When the power goes out, grid-tied systems go out too. That's because it's not safe to be pushing electricity back out onto the wires while workers may be trying to fix the problem, so your inverter (the big box near your meter that turns DC electricity created by the panels into usable AC current) recognizes that the grid is out and shuts your system off. Myth #8: Home Solar Panels Will Make The Roof Appears Ugly Fact: In the last ten years there's been a growing awareness of how smart renewable energy is from both environmental and economic perspective, so solar panels are finally coming into their own and being regarded as an enhancement instead of an eyesore. It's about time! Homeowners' associations that used to be steadfastly against solar have changed their policies and are now going solar in groups. Myth #9: Installing Home Solar Panels Will Increase Property Tax Fact: In California and many other states, solar installations are property-tax exempt. From an investment perspective, this means that installing solar panels will increase the resale value of your house without costing you an extra dime in property taxes. The same cannot be said for other home investments such as swimming pools, a new deck, etc. Myth #10: Home Solar Panels Require a Tracking System To Follow The Sun's Angle Fact: Though tracking mechanisms can provide efficiency gains for your solar panel system, they typically do not increase efficiency enough to justify the additional expense and maintenance of moving parts in residential situations. More importantly, most homeowners don't have the additional space required for these systems.

shows how to hook up solar panels (with a battery bank). simple instructions. home solar power station. very easy to put together. all you need is 1 or more batteries, an inverter, charge controller and a solar panel or panels. the following is for a 12 volt system. use one 'deep cycle' battery for every 2 to 6 amps your panels generate. (batteries like to be charged at this rate). a 12 volt 1 amp panel generates about 15 watts. you can use any solar panels. if you can't get the smaller panels then buy one larger one. (Kyocera sells an inexpensive 7-8 amp solar panel (135 watter)). that would go perfect with 2 deep cycle batteries. the six panels in the video are from harbor freight tools. i bought 2 three panel sets. they sell the panels in sets of three or individually. coleman sells similar panels. the batteries are from walmart. they are 'deep cycle' batteries. the charge controller is from fry's electronics. the inverter is from harbor freight tools. this system will provide all the 'free' power you will need to run tons of things around your house. i've posted 6 videos showing all sorts of things running on this system (computers, tvs, stereos, lights, power tools, appliances, and more). all can be found on my youtube channel homepage. great little system to start with. try 'powering up' one room in your house. you now have a solar assisted house. as one example; this could easily run a light, laptop computer, fan and small tv for several hours every day. also great in an emergency, power outage, remote and rural off-grid living.

http://www.futureelectronics.com/en/Search.aspx?dsNav=Ny:True,Nea:True,N:4452 Hi, I'm Sean Nantel, here to talk to you today about various types of solar panels, and how you can save money and energy, using solar panels for all kinds of applications. When it comes to photovoltaic solar energy installation, there are 3 basic types of solar panels. http://www.futureelectronics.com/en/Search.aspx?dsNav=Ny:True,Nea:True,N:4452 First, let's talk about monocrystalline solar panels. These use a single ingot of crystalline silicon, which delivers a higher level of efficiency over polycrystalline panels, which use multiple smaller crystals. They are a bit more expensive, however, monocrystalline solar panels generate more watts per square meter, which is critical if space is an issue. The higher efficiency also helps monocrystalline solar panels perform better in low light or shaded conditions. These solar panels are also better suited to high temperature environments; but this isn't as critical when you consider solar panel efficiency is typically measured at 25 degrees Celsius or 77 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, we'll discuss polycrystalline solar panels. While their efficiency has been improving over the years and hasn't yet caught up with monocrystalline solar cells, polycrystalline panels are a cost effective alternative if you have a good location with good light conditions, very little shade and favorable temperatures. In such settings, the cost per watt of polycrystalline solar panels is better than monocrystalline solar panels. Finally, amorphous or thin film solar panels are typically created by vapor deposition, similar to printing on a plastic backing. This process makes amorphous solar panels cheaper to produce than crystalline solar panels. However, amorphous solar panels are about 50% less efficient than their crystalline solar panel counterparts. Therefore, a lot of room is required in order to make amorphous solar panels a viable solution to produce solar energy, but they do tolerate high temperatures much better, so a desert environment makes them an ideal solution for an alternative energy provider. As you can see, it's important to choose the right solar panel for your photovoltaic solar energy installation, taking into account the location conditions, the amount of room available for solar panels, and the costs versus benefits. In the past, once the installation conditions were studied and the solar panels chosen, the last piece of the analysis would be to pick a central inverter in the case of a grid tie system, or to pick a battery charger and batteries in the case of an off-grid solar electric installation. Today, many more options are available using solar panels for electricity, including turning your solar panel into an 'AC Solar Panel' or a 'Smart Solar Panel'. Call or visit Future Energy Solutions to find out more about crystalline, thin film and custom cut solar panels to fit any application. http://www.futureelectronics.com/
