solar panel Philippines
Just finished setting up our 200 watts solar panel. Woohoo!
36 pcs 5x5in solar cells
47 x 24 inches aluminum frame
46.5 x 23.5 inches glass (front cover of the solar cells)
47 x 24 inches acrylic (back cover of the solar cells)
12 pcs stainless steel bolts and nuts
rubber washers for the bots and nuts
double sided tape
Soldering the cells were very easy. After we have finished on them, we went to different glass/aluminum supply shops to canvass for the aluminum frame, glass and acrylic. Unfortunately, there were no shop here in our my place that sells acryclic, we found one a town away from where we live.
So we ordered those three, aluminium frame, glass and acrylic and waited for the worker to finish cutting the glass and acrylic and we even asked him to drill holes in the… 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
For years many have been using solar energy as a means of producing electricity. How do they do that? With the help of technology.
Sun’s light and heat are stored and that stored solar energy is used to produce power, i.e. electricity.
In many countries, solar power is already in use, lights, pumps, homes’ electricity are being powered by the Sun. Not only do they help the environment as with the use of solar power there is no need for oil, or fossil fuels that in the long run will be gone. Sun’s light and heat are everywhere, it’s free. Unless the sun explodes we can and will always have power in our homes if we use Solar Energy.
In order for us to get free electricity from the sun, we need a few things:
– the most important is the Solar Panel
– Battery (this is where we will… Continue reading
