Purchasing solar electric panels is the primary step in the process. Typically, these are mounted on top of the roof of the house or building. Other people also opt for stand alone facilities, similar to a tower. The important thing is to situate the panels in a location where the sun can directly hit it.
The Perendev motor is the work of any enthusiast. There are many other similar motors just like the Bedini, Troy Reed motor while others. These are the products of generations of tinkering and testing.
Prices of solar panels range with variations of size, materials used in production, and wattage; besides the company that produces them. A good price per watt currently is about $4.30 (SPI). They can also be purchased at $3.00 per watt if you have some soldering experience to use scrap panels. For more information on this option, visit the SPI website. At the first rate, one can expect to pay $215 for a 50 watt panel.
Wind is of course being used for the generation of power by wind turbines. Were the wind a constant and reliable factor these installations would be a commercial boon. Sadly it is not and if there is too little wind and often if there is too much the turbines are ineffective so at best the commercial on shore wind farms are producing 20% of their design capacity and require some heavy subsidies to be viable. Their big advantage is that when conditions are right the power that is produced is carbon neutral.
The first one will show you how to build a wind generator / wind turbine for less than a $100 vs paying $2500 for a new one. The wind generator puts out over 800 watts, depending on the size that you make. You could have several smaller wind generators to give you adequate power. So I know you are asking yourself, what if there is not enough wind to bring power to charge my battery source, that is where solar panels cost per watt comes into effect.
Choose LEDs (light emitting diodes) for your garden lights s they give out the maximum light by consuming very little power. LEDs are maintenance free and can last up to 100,000 hours. The solar panels on the top absorb sunlight during the day, which is stored in the rechargeable batteries to operate the lights at night.
In the case of hybrid vehicles, like the Toyota Prius, they use multiple fuel sources. The advanced technology they utilize combines an electrical motor with a small gas engine. The fuel types are used alternately depending on the driving speed. When driving on the expressway, both electricity and fuel are being used while the battery recharges itself. Looking at alternative energy sources is vital in resolving our environmental and economic concerns.
No pun intended but the future of residential solar energy is very bright. There is a wide open market for eager start up companies to establish new “Green Googles”. There is a huge and growing market for new entrepreneurs to start a fresh with something new.
