Our next seminar was held in my office here at Tsarina Grand Villas as we thought we are going to do a one on one only. Sir Nestor Estrada who came from Davao City was scheduled on that day.
Little did we know that 2 more attendees are coming on that day, Sir Daniel Ong and his friend came an hour later.
The place was a bit crowded, we usually have our seminar with 3 people or more held at the multipurpose hall of Tsarina Grand Villas, but because the lecture already started when the 2 came, there was no more time to move to the multipurpose hall. All went well though even if it was a little bit crowded :D, the 3 guys continued with the discussion, question and answer and the hands on of wiring system, there was no problem at all with them with regards… Continue reading
Sir Silverio Capellan had been wanting to learn more about solar energy in fact he has his own solar panel installed in his place but something is wrong with it so he wanted to attend the seminar.
So even though he was very near our place he was not able to attend the previous seminars held. He was only able to have time for it last Feb 19.
It was a one on one with him. Photo below is lecture and hands on of actual wiring of solar power system.
After lunch, DIY on solar panel started…
Testing the project..
Sir Silverio was happy with the outcome of the seminar and his project which was perfectly working. Thanks for coming sir, more power.
EE students from PUP Sta. Mesa Manila attended an advanced tutorial on solar powered cellphone charger.
They were thankful that they were able to saw one of our ad online about solar cells for sale. At first they only asked to buy cells for their solar powered cellphone charger project, and asked a lot of questions. We decided then to offer an advance tutorial for them so they can understand better. Asking for directions on how to get here at Gen. Trias Cavite, they scheduled for a tutorial Feb 1. They came a little bit behind the time scheduled but everything was ok considering how far they came from.
This tutorial is more of hands on and less lecture. We did have a little bit of lecture on solar cells and solar power works since they don’t have wide knowledge on it. After that each… Continue reading
Sir Candido Ugayan from Laguna accompanied her daughter to her workplace somewhere here in Cavite. While he was on his way back, he saw our Tarpaulin Solar Energy Seminar Ad at a corner street in Mangahan, he got interested and wanted to understand/learn how solar energy worked, he right away called for a seminar schedule. From where he lives some dont have electricity yet.
Sir Candido surprisingly, came very early in the morning :), an hour ahead of our schedule. We didn’t start right away when he came as I was still double checking the things that we are going to use for the seminar. The seminar was held in Tsarina Grand Villas.
We had a little chat it was then that he mentioned he saw the ad and that got his curiosity and he read and then called the same day. He… Continue reading
Many people are now getting interested in solar energy, we’ve been getting calls as far as Zamboanga asking if we have solar seminars there.. lol. For this new year 2013, our first attendees were Sir Jojo Leda, Sir Rodolfo Matias and Sir Jojo Saquin.
Sir Jojo Leda came all the way from Quezon province just to attend the seminar. He booked early and Sir Jojo Saquin and Rodolfo Matias are from Metro Manila. The seminar was held at the multipurpose hall of Tsarina Grand Villas here at Gen. Trias, Cavite.
Some of those who had asked for a schedule on this date weren’t able to come. The seminar started past 9 am, after everyone had chatted a little and introduced themselves and how they come to know the seminars held here.
Lecture, computations, question… Continue reading
Well this is a belated post of our solar panel installation :), the past months had been a very busy one for us here.
I made 2 trips to the roof when I have installed my first DIY solar panel.. a bit dangerous as our roof is kinda steep. Here’s a view from the roof where you can see Lyceum University of the Philippines – Cavite Campus.
It was cloudy and yes, added more danger to it. Before we went to the roof actually it was very hot and after an hour of being there, it got cloudy and started to rain a little, we rushed down right away to avoid any accidents. The third and next trips we made to the roof was with a rope tied to my waist, not to take any chances anymore.
Anyway, here are more pics of the installation.. Cut bars were screwed… Continue reading
This one is cool, father and son :D.
Sirs Jeff Ng and his father Wilson Ng, attended a solar seminar. Well the patriarch Sir Wilson accompanied his youngest son he did not participated in the solar panel DIY hands on though and just let Jeff do the task of finishing both projects.. Electronics is not their line, but they are interested in learning how solar energy works and how to conserve electricity using this kind of system.
Lecture and hands on of wiring system.
DIY hands on training, 5 watts solar panel.
Sir Jeff proud of his very own solar panel.. It was a good day for all of us. The family invited us to visit their bread store in Manila, to which we did :D.
Thank you po for coming over. Hope we shared something valuable to both of you. More power!
Yes you can do this.. and save more on your electricity bills during the holidays.
Use LED Christmas lights instead of the usual Christmas lights that you see at the malls/stores.
Here’s what you need
10 watts solar panel (or 5 watts)
5 watts 100 LED bulbs Christmas lights
50 watts inverter (or lower)
When daytime the solar panel will charge the battery. At night time the battery will power the Christmas lights, it’s that simple and the installation/wirings are very easy to do.
Here’s another guide on solar panel installation.
Solar Charge Controller - how important is this product to your solar power system.
A charge controller or solar charge regulator is basically a voltage and/or current regulator to keep batteries from overcharging. It regulates the voltage and the current coming from the solar panels going to the battery. Most “12 volt” solar panels give out about 16 to 20 volts, so if there is no regulation the batteries will be overcharged and that in turn will damage your battery. Most batteries need around 14 to 14.5 volts to get fully charged.
There are times that solar charge controller are not needed if you have a small maintenance solar power system or solar panels, example are the 1 watt to 5 watts solar panels. A rough rule is that if the panel puts out about 2 watts or less for each… Continue reading
Believe it or not, these 2 guys are best buddies..
Sir Victor (or lolo Victor) came first about a week before the scheduled seminar to inquire, then on the day of sem he was accompanied with his best bud Sir Noriel.. wow.. Even with their huge age gap they understand each other and are good friends. They said they both wanted to learn what solar energy is all about and how it works. They prefer to do things together.
Lecture, computation and hands on wiring system…
At the hands on part, they both worked on 1 solar panel tabbing each cells alternately all the way to framing it.
Sharing the tabbing of cells…
Framing the tabbed cells…
Finished project and testing for voltage output under the sun… Their project is perfect! They didn’t even broke even a single cell… Continue reading
