Here are the photos of the Solar Energy Seminar scheduled last September 9 at Tsarina Grand Villas. There were some who made reservation but was not able to attend due to unavoidable circumstances, but the seminar went well and was a success. The venue – Tsarina Grand Villas, Multi-Purpose Hall, Mangahan, Gen. Trias, Cavite. While waiting for the others to arrive, the speaker and the attendees had a little chat, getting to know each other… Lecture Proper – Level 1 The seminar started past 9 am as some of the attendees came from the city most of them commuted just to get to the venue and we have to wait for them before we start. Level 1 of the Seminar, during the lecture there were also question and answer portions and actual demo on how to connect everything (wirings, solar panels, charge controller, inverter, circuit breaker). The attendees were… Continue reading
For our seminar attendees here’s a map on how to get here.
From Pala -pala Dasma, take Governor’s Drive (going to Trece Martirez Cavite).
Lyceum University of the Philippines
Bank of the Philippine Islands (corner) take the road from here, go left, first gate on the left is Tsarina Grand Villas.
At the intersection – South Star Drug, McDonalds, Police Station (hindi na aabot dito)
Yung kanto ng Road 1 and Road 7 ang location ng seminar sa gilid ng basketball court.
Multipurpose Hall, Tsarina Grand Villas, Manggahan, Gen. Trias, Cavite.
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
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
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
Here’s what our 5 watts solar panel looks like.
Mono Crystalline Solar Panel
When we started installing solar panel in our home, we started with a smaller wattage solar panel. With electricity bill rising up here, using solar energy was a much needed option for us to save on money, by using free electricity.
With this 5 watts solar panel size, using a solar controller/charger and an inverter, we were able to use 1 LED bulb 220V, 3 watts, which was good enough to be used in our dining room.
And then after some time we added another 1.5 watts LED bulb, 220V in one of the bedrooms.
This is how an LED bulb looks like. There’s a 12V and a 220V, we used the 220V and just removed our old bulbs and replaced it with this one.
We now have two… Continue reading
