Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does It Cost To Install Solar Panels At Home?
My Family Is Really &Quot;Green&Quot; When It Comes To Our Lifestyle. I Just Need To Know How Much It Would Cost For Solar Panels To Provide Our Electricity. How Many Would One House Need? Do They Charge By The Panel?
It is not that simple. You need panels, batteries to store the energy, an inverter. Your usage can be figured out by a professional who will ask you questions about your lifestyle to figure out your average usage, determining your panel/battery needs. You cannot run any high usage items such as electric dryers or electric stoves, or electric furnace (depending on where you live). There are a lot of variables. You will be looking at around $20-30000 per average 4 person household.
Where To Buy Solar Panels?
I'M Hypothetically Speaking But How Would I Go About Converting My House Into One That Runs On Solar Panels?
Does Anybody Have Any Links To Information On Photovoltaic Panels Or Links To Companies That Actually Sell Them, Not Just Talk About Them And Give U A &Quot;Quote&Quot;? Thanks
First you have to figure out how much electricity is needed to run your house. Check your electric bills for the last year, figure out an average KWH/ day and the maximum KWH/day used in the year.
Your normal solar system can only generate usable electricity for less than 8 hours a day in the summer and 5 hours a day in the winter. Varies some as you move farther north and how many cloudy days you have. Example Tucson AZ is considered an ideal climate for solar power and has 7.42 sun hours per day maximum and 6.01 sun hours per day minimum (winter) with an average of 6.57 sun hours per day This means an average of 6.5 hours per day of usable solar electricity. Do a search on " Insolation chart " to find your area.
Anyway a half decent price for a 1.9 KW system which produces approximately 12KWH per day is around $13,000 un-installed. Add the cost of the installation and the fact that 12 KWH per day is not enough to reduce your bill to zero and a typical whole house system will cost around $80,000 without installation and without battery backups for nighttime electricity.

What Is The Best Solar Panel To Buy?
I am assuming you are talking about photovoltaic panels, not solar thermal?
If you do plan on buying one, and not building one yourself, then there are only a few things you need to consider to compare panels. Most solar panels are very very similar. They almost all offer the same guarantee (25 years material & workmanship, declining power guarantee). There are only one or two or three things that differentiate one from the other.
First, look at the cost per watt of rated power. Now, you are never going to get the rated power out of your panel - just like you won't get your rated MPG on your car - but it will let you know which panels give you most bang for the buck.
Second, if you are hoping to get a rebate or incentive on your panels, make sure that they are on the qualified list of panels that are eligible for a rebate.
Third, check out the "power tolerance" and look for one that is as low as possible. 10% is high. 5% is okay. 2% is great. This tells you how much more or less than the rating your panel can provide. If you buy a 100 watt panel with a 10% tolerance, then your panel is considered acceptable by the manufacturer if it puts out anything over 90 watts.
Finally, the best panel to buy may be the one you can get your hands on. Right now, there is a tremendous panel shortage. My suppliers are telling me that if I want a large quantity of matched panels I will need to wait until at least this fall. They just can't make them fast enough right now.
What Can I Do For The Environment With A Flat 25M Square Roof?
I Can Get Up There By Ladder, But Don'T Like Doing So Too Much. Any Suggestions?

What Is A Good Website To Purchase Solar Panels And The Equipment To Connect It To A Home.?
Solar Panel Systems Are Something I Would Like To Install And Would Like To Know Where To Buy Quality Systems Online Or Anywhere Near Kansas.
Go to SOLAR PANELS on the Internet. You will find all sorts of suppliers. If you plan to get a rebate from any government agency, probably they will have a list of approved equipments.
Forget batteries if you will be on the grid, unless you really must have power during utility outages. Buy as big a system as you can afford. At least have as many panels as the inverter can utilize
