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

Why It Is Important To Know Who Makes Solar Panels

Who makes solar panels? According to a list released by Forbes, China leads the world for countries that make solar panels, followed by Canada and America.With more people choosing to use clean renewable energy sources and move from non-renewable options, there has been an uptrend in world wide solar panel production.So who makes these solar panels to meet that growing demand? You might recognise some of the names on this Forbes list that include Trina Solar and Yingli Green Energy from

Why A Solar Hot Water System?

Solar Hot Water Systems Save MoneyMost households get their domestic hot water for washing dishes and clothes, bathing and cooking from a water heating system.The system may vary from an electric or gas-fired water heater, to a boiler or furnace that are also used for heating the home. Using electricity for heating water is expensive. Using electricity to heat water will keep pinching the hip pocket nerve. Also, gas water heaters will be phased out too, despite them being a

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 its a portable power generating device you can carry from one place to another like a briefcase, use it (plug and play) and stow it.Portable solar devices look a bit like conventional rooftop solar panel systems. The have the appearance of an unfixed mini solar panel. Bring them out of the case, fold them out directed towards the sunlight (propped up

Energy Conservation Methods That Save Your Cash

Reduce Your Power Use NeedsWe Earthlings have two choices where energy is concerned.We have the 'use it' choice. Choose to see no problem and continue in the hope that it will be decades before the resources dry up and by then a solution will emerge to replace their technology or a new extraction technique is discovered to replenish them. That choice means using the resources of our planet until they deplete to uneconomic recovery levels.Another choice would be to do something

How The Advantages Of Solar Energy Can Ease Your Financial Pain And Help The Environment

There are many advantages of solar energy!Your solar power investments return more money to your wallet than they initially cost. They have a definite payback.Here Are Some Major Advantages Of SolarThere are advantages of solar and negative aspects as well. I’ll get to disadvantages of solar energy later, but let’s acknowledge that using solar power has a lot of positives.The positive aspects of solar energy include it being:An abundant limitless energy sourceSun light is widely distributed and totally freeThe sun will come

Is Solar Battery Storage Still Relevant?

Solar Battery Storage ThinkingSolar battery storage thoughts can follow the successful execution of rooftop solar installation. You have done the economic analysis and the solar PV array will pay for itself in a few years. The self-consumption of the generated power pays for the system. Maybe with the feed-in tariff you have nothing to pay on electricity because it nets off against the power drawn from the grid when the sun goes down.What happens after you get solar power with

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
