With the rising cost of power in this current economic crisis and the environmental toll it takes on the earth people are starting to look at DIY Solar Power as a real alternative. It makes sense to turn to a more natural, cheaper sustainable source to fulfill our energy needs. What could be more natural than harvesting the energy given of by the sun?.
Residential solar power has been with us for decades now, but the price of installation (often driving up into the thousands of dollars) has been prohibitive for the average householder to consider homemade solar energy as… Continue reading
During the week of June 21, 2010, I had a photovoltaic solar system installed at my home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The installation took place over two days, with the panels installed the first day and the electrical connections completed the second day. The system consists of 18 235-Watt panels, and each panel has a dedicated inverter installed under the solar panel. As you can see, the crews were fast, neat and professional. I gave a lecture with very detailed information about the cost and savings with this system. It’s on video, and you can watch it… Continue reading
Countries all over the world are leading the way towards a green economy. Unfortunately lobbying by the oil, gas, coal and nuclear industries are hindering progress. Very soon, perhaps even now depending on the cost of electricity in your area, solar technology will be more economically cost effective than traditional forms of electrical production.

A solar panel is a sizable flat, rectangular shape, usually somewhere between the size of a radiator and a door. Solar panels are made from individual solar collectors that are covered with a protective sheet of glass. Bluish-black in color, each cell is about the size of the palm of an adult’s hand, and is generally octagonal in shape. Simillar to the cells in a battery, these cells are intended to produce electricity. However, instead of developing electricity from chemicals as battery cells do, solar cells use the sun’s rays. Photovoltaic is another name for solar cells… Continue reading

The success of renewable energy particularly solar power in Queensland has been a combination of comprehensive government programs and Queenslanders themselves who took the initiative to go green and be a part of carbon sequestration while reaping its financial benefits.
In all of Australia, Queensland ranks among the top tier in solar power use proving that Queenslanders are embracing solar technology and are committed in environmental protection.
The Government’s part
The Queensland government has implemented some of the most successful and comprehensive programs in renewable energy. Queensland’s feed in tariff scheme is currently the most generous… Continue reading
