Get Solar Energy For Your Home With DIY Solar Panels

Solar Panels and Zoning

Make Sure Your Solar Panels Don’t Cost You More Money!

Before you order your do-it-yourself home solar energy system and start building your own solar panels, you might want to save yourself a big headache (and loads of money!) by looking into your local zoning. If you live on acreage in an unincorporated area, you might still be subject to some state restrictions. So it is always wise do ask some questions and do some research at the beginning of your solar panel project’s planning process (instead of waiting until the money has been spent!).

12v Solar Panels That Are Portable – A Guide

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

DIY Solar Panels – What Are Thin Film Solar Panels?

Thin film solar panels are a newer, thinner type of solar panel which has the potential to make solar energy much cheaper. They rely on the same photovoltaic process that “thick” solar panels use. Basically, the PV cell contains semiconducting material. Sunlight passes through and interacts with the semiconductor material, and creates an electric current. This electricity can be used immediately to power appliances in your home or business, or stored in batteries for later use.

Planar Power: Flat Sodium-Nickel Chloride Battery Could Improve Performance, Cost of Energy Storage

A redesign of sodium-nickel chloride batteries promises to overcome some of the obstacles long associated with rechargeable batteries. Replacing their typical cylindrical shape with a flat disc design allows the battery to deliver 30 percent more power at lower temperatures, according to new research. Scientists say these sodium-beta batteries could eventually be used in electricity substations to balance the generation and delivery of wind and solar power on to the grid.
