Custom Solar Energy Solutions
Solar power has been growing steadily popular, both domestically and industrially for a number of years now, but even more so in recent times. Everywhere you look these days, there are solar applications, ranging from traffic display signs to solar powered power stations – the list is a huge one! For some number of years, we all have had expectations that the cost of solar power may come down, but that is a dream yet to come true! In the mean time, there are many other options that are affordable for the vast majority of us and this is the purpose of this website –
Solar Power Applications
Solar energy mainly, is a great source for keeping batteries fully charged and then in turn, the batteries can run a whole range of appliances. In countries where there is no electricity supply for many areas within that country, solar lighting is one of the most needed resources, as light is usually supplied by kerosene lamps, which could be devastating to the health of the people that have no choice but to use them – Like the child that needs to study their school work under the light of a kerosene lamp!
A simple battery operated LED lamp is perfect for such applications… #1 LED lamps use very low energy #2 It could be powered by rechargeable batteries and #3 A small solar panel should be sufficient to fully charge the batteries – the overall cost for such an app; $20 – $30!
Cooking is another app that could be served by solar power, however, this one gets a bit complicated as huge amounts of power is required. With enough batteries, the demands could be met but depending on how often this resource is utilized, will depend on how many panels would be needed…
With heating, the energy demand is huge! Probably the best way to tackle this issue is to use heating appliances which are powered by natural gas, otherwise, if we were to use solar power, we will need enough batteries that can run about 2Kw of power for at least a few hours and you’d need enough solar panels to charge the batteries in one cycle – It can get quite expensive in such circumstances…
Cheapest Solar Energy System
A least chosen but often cheaper option to brand new batteries, is to buy refurbished batteries for less than half the price of a brand new one, or for the more adventurous solar enthusiast, reconditioning your own batteries can be accomplished for just a fraction of the price of a refurbished one!
Just like batteries, solar panels can also be obtained for very cheap prices; for example, secondhand panels can be bought for less than half the price of a brand new one or if you endeavor to build your own then that can be accomplished for a fraction of the price of a secondhand one!
Some of the places you may like to try for cheap batteries or solar panels include but not limited to are: Auction sites, demolitions, Traffic signs departments and the list goes on… Other options may involve, reconditioning, building your own, utilizing broken parts and the list here too is virtually unlimited…
Greedy Power Companies Cutting Power Incentives!
Once upon a time, having a solar power system installed on your home was not only a bill saver, but a nice amount of cash could be made from the excess power that was fed back into the grid. But then, the greedy power companies could not ignore the potential money that they could be make, so they decided to reduce the tariffs… In other words, the excess power your solar energy system produces is sold at the full rate, while you only get a fraction of that… And that is why consumers are now resorting to battery power!
Tesla Batteries – the New Age Of Power production
These days, people with solar installations have realized the potential of getting their power for free, so instead of feeding the excess power their systems produce, to the power companies, they’re simply storing it with batteries! At night, when solar power is not being generated, they have the power stored within their batteries to use – and it’s totally free! You get 100% of that power instead of just 6% from the power company. Just imagine the countless amounts of people who are getting just 6% of their power back, while the power companies are reaping 94% of your power in cash!
By owning a battery bank, all excess power is stored in those, but then, what happens when the batteries are full? Well, that’s when the excess power can be fed back into the grid. besides, for one your power is for free and secondly, you can sell the excess power back to the power companies; and it doesn’t matter that you only receive chicken feed back, because your power is free anyway and any excess is money in your pocket, no matter how small it may be!
