Solar Projects For Kids

Kids Are Curious About RenewablesTeaching solar projects for kids will be a rewarding experience for you and your children. Kids share a special relationship with the sun. It’s one of the first things they normally draw.The sun is one of the first things they feel and experience when they step out of their house. They never shy away from playing in the sun and its constant rays never feel too hot to them.DIY solar projects for kids will help them

Peer To Peer Energy Sales: What Is That?

In peer-to-peer energy sales of electricity all electrons are equal. Some electrons on the grid are generated from renewable sources and most are generated by fossil fuels.Energy TradingGovernments around the world have created all kinds of systems to account for how much energy gets produced from renewable sources. Some of that tracking for renewables like solar, wind and hydro is based on tradable certificates.Other than knowing their sources are different, is the electricity generated from green sources distinguishable in any

Monocrystalline Solar Panels; Are They The Best For All Your Solar Energy Needs?

What are monocrystalline silicon solar panels? Read on as I look at the construction of silicon based PV panels in monocrystalline, polycrystalline and amorphous silicon for solar PV panels. What solar panels present the best value for money? Let's check the differences between monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels.​What is the solar energy conversion efficiency of the technology as a factor towards the output for the entire installed system (in Watts), which can be contrasted with the capital cost of production of the

Everything You Need To Know About Portable Solar Panels

Portable Solar Panels –What Are They?As the name portable solar panels suggests, it's power systems that are portable. That means you can carry the device from one place to other, use it and store it. Portable solar devices are like conventional fixed rooftop solar panel systems in appearance. But you can fold them away and do not need attachment to a roof. Fold out, connect, use, packed up and take away.Portable solar power is mobile; it's a simple and practical solution

The Truth About The Disadvantages Of Solar Energy Is About To Be Revealed

Radiation - A Disadvantage Of Solar EnergyThinking about the solar negatives after you’ve installed the solar panel array, inverter, batteries, etc. is what many call post-purchase regret. That is also what some people might call 'buyer’s remorse'. You think; “Why didn’t that photovoltaic disadvantage occur to me while I was doing the feasibility analysis?”You’re looking at red sunburnt skin after a day in the sun and asking yourself; "why didn't I use sunscreen?" Maybe you had it with you but

How To Connect Solar Panels To Your Solar Project

I was asked, "How do you connect solar panels? Will that fix an electricity cost problem?" That question is addressed below.Our day by day electricity costs from the utility companies are becoming so expensive. The electrical utility companies are embracing renewable energy using solar and wind farms, which is producing green power for them at lower cost. But, a lot of that electricity you buy from the grid still gets generated through non-renewable energy resources.There is dependence on using thermal

How To Calculate Solar Energy Use And Determine The Size Of Your Solar System

Our sun is a natural nuclear reactor. Every second it releases a massive amount of energy, including light energy in photons. ​​How do you calculate a solar energy system to use that free energy? How do you determine the size of your solar panels?  How many solar panels will power a house?​Photons are the tiny packets of energy that enter into the atmosphere as daylight. Photons travel the 93 million miles distance from the sun to Earth at the speed of light taking
