DIY Solar Panels – Solar panels for the home have been with us for years. Other technologies for the home have taken off. Yet take up of residential solar panels has actually been decreasing in the United States as share of the total US solar market. In 2010, residential solar panel installations accounted for 30% of all solar installations, compared with 36% the previous year.
Is It Time For DIY Solar Panels?
With ever increasing energy bills, this video shows how one householder decided it was time to fit solar panels to her house.

12v solar panels (12v) are some of the most popular types of portable solar panel
systems. How much energy does a 12v solar panel give you? Perhaps not enough to heat your
house, but enough to run some of your smaller electrical devices, or recharge
their rechargeable batteries.
These portable 12v solar panels operate like large solar panels, but produce less
electrical power due to their smaller size. Like their larger cousins, 12v solar panels
operate best under direct full sun conditions. Most of them will work on cloudy
Solar Panels…There’s much talk about solar energy solving the world’s energy problems. But wouldn’t it be smart to know if there are any dangers or hidden negative issues before starting a large project? Here are 3 things to consider before you spend your money:
1) Toxic materials.
Micro-scaled photovoltaic devices may one day be used to deliver chemotherapeutic drugs directly to tumors, rendering chemotherapy less toxic to surrounding tissue.
