We conducted another one on one, this time it was with Eric Chua from Dasma who requested it, as he was not able to attend the last seminar schedule we had.
Venue of one on one is at TGV Gen. Trias, Cavite. Conducted last Oct 16, 2012.
The lecture went quick as expected since he was the only one being taught and the only one asking questions :D.
The hands on started before lunch. Before lunch he had to solder 9 solar cells first :D.
Eric has a background in electronics already and is making his own coin slot operated machines for Play Stations and cellphone charging machine, teaching him went smoothly.
Testing his finished project before framing, and adding the junction box at the back.
Sir Eric Chua with his finished project – 5 watts solar panel framed temporarily and all good to use. He… Continue reading
Here are some photos from our last seminar held last October 7, 2012.
Venue is at Tsarina Grand Villas Multipurpose Hall in Gen. Trias Cavite. Attendees are from Trece Martires Cavite, Quezon City and Bulacan.
Level 1 and level 2 pics.
Solar cells in different sizes and solar panels used for demo
For better understanding of computations there were different solar cell sizes and different finished solar panels shown to attendees. Solar cell sizes from smallest 52x19mm to 3x6in were passed around, and solar panels from 2 watts, 5 watts (one was a single column DIY the other was the most common design of 5 watts), 10 watts and 20 watts solar panels were used for the demo.
Most of the attendees have knowledge on electronics so the seminar went a bit fast, all questions are answered to their satisfaction, one asked for additional information on bulb… Continue reading

We’ve installed a 5 watt solar panel for a pond fountain in Indang Cavite.
If you have landscaping, pond with fountains and lights, fountains, or outside decorations that needs electric power and runs for 24 hours a day or even less than that, Solar Power would be a great help for you as it will give you huge savings in your electricity bill.
We placed the solar panel first near the pond so we can take photos and video, for demo purposes. The type of pump used for the fountain is an 8 watts submersible pump.
Solar panels are very low maintenance, just have it installed anywhere you want as long as its direct to sunlight, connect wirings and that’s all about it.
This solar powered fountain, installed in Indang, Cavite uses also an inverter (to convert DC power into AC power – 220v).
5 watts solar panel… Continue reading
Solar power has been really helpful for us.
We’ve used it in many ways already. Last year we have an aquaponics set-up using Tilapia and vegetables for the system, a small scale outdoor fish farming. 24 hours a day, the pump should be running for the aquaponics. Well, if you think of the electricity we have consumed the past year and the cost of it, we can say it wasn’t cheap. We had two big tanks (a big drum and another square tank for the aquaponics, both using pumps).
This year, no more paying for electricity use on our fish tank water pumps, we’re getting free electricity with Solar Power.
Here’s a simple demo on how we’ve used a 5 watts solar panel for our water pump.
The pump by the way, is a 12V car windshield water reservoir sprinkler / sprayer motor. We connected the 12V motor to the… Continue reading
