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
We’ve used the sun’s heat and light in many ways to help us in our daily living. One common way is using sun in drying clothes ^_^, that’s the power of the sun, others use the sun’s heat and light to change the color of their skin, so called tanning. And if you add a glass or magnifying glass, you can make a fire with the help of the sun.
There are different ways we can get free energy from the Sun and in these times, with high technologies just within our reach, we can now get free electricity from the Sun. By means of Solar cells (called “photovoltaic”, “PV” or “photoelectric” cells) or widely known as solar panels if they are bigger, this converts light directly in electricity.
If you are using a calculator, you see that small rectangle at the top of your calculator, that’s a solar… Continue reading
These days many people are looking for ways to save on electricity consumption and save money. Many ways have been invented to get free energy or free electricity for commercial use. One of them is using the power of the “sun”.
Our sun doesn’t only give us light and heat. When used with technology it can also give us free power or free electricity. This is where solar energy gets in.
Solar energy in laymen term simply means, energy from the light and heat of the sun. I know, there are more complicated meaning of this, and computations, and in-depth explanations, but hey let’s leave it to the geniuses… lol.
Wikipedia defines solar energy as “radiant light and heat from the sun. Solar energy has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar energy technologies include solar heating, solar photovoltaics, solar thermal electricity and… Continue reading
