About Solar Energy

What Can I Make Out Of A Solar Panel?
For A Science Project I Have To Use A Solar Panel And Connect To Something? But I Dont Know What..Any Ideas. Like Attaching A Wire From The Solar Panel To The Wire In The Object. The Object Has To Use By Battery Expect When I Put On The Solar Panel.. I Wont Have To Use The Battery. Oh And If U Dont Mind..U Can Show Me How To Make It...Thank You
you can make the solar panel light up an LED... convert light to electricity and then back into light.
When Buying Outdoor Solar Landscape Lights What Should I Look For?
* luminaire output - BTW, most newer solar lights use LEDs. on average a light comes with 1-3 LEDs.
* solar panel storage capacity - consider how much charge it can hold & can it effectively drive the output of all LEDs in the lights.
* separate solar panels that can be wired to multiple lights. - if a panel can be wired to 2 lights, you may get more 'light time' if you only hook up 1 light to the panel. (this is the trick I use)
* the amount of direct light it needs to charge.
a good detailed explanation is found on the web at: http://chinese-school.netfirms.com/revie...
How Can I Start My Own Solar Panel Company? What Certificates Do I Need?
What All Do I Need To Be Legal? Also While Im Waiting To Become Legal How Can I Sell Solar Panels For Larger Companies?
I think all you need is a business license to sell panels. That would be a hard business to break into, like trying to open a lumberyard when Home Depot already has rock-bottom prices. The big guys have economy of scale.
If you want to install the panels, that's another matter. I believe you would need a C-10 solar contractor's license in California, but can check your own state's website for requirements.
Like any business, it would be better to work for someone else first. Learn the ropes, before setting out on your own.
