#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

Frequently Asked Questions
What'S The Best Place To Mount Solar Panels?
Depends where you are. The short answer is wherever it is convenient and allowed by statute, ordinance or covenant.
Ground mounted arrays can be as effective as roof mounted arrays without worry of the structure being able to handle the wind loading of the panels and mounts.
Post mounts work too.
Ideally north of the tropic of cancer- you want the panels to face southerly, nad south of the tropic of capricorn- to face north. In between those tropic lines just putting them flat to the sky would work reasonalby well.
You want to determine the midpoint of the sun's transit acros the sky from east to west in your area as terrain alters what is your optimum position; and perpendicular to the sun at it's highest point of transit location midday on one of the equinox days. for the best average of power output all year.

Solar Panel, Dc Light Help?
Hi, I Want To Put Some Solar Light In My Yard, And Wondering If A 100W Solar Panel Could Work For A Few 3W Dc Lights....Do I Need A Battery So They Run At Night, If So How Many Lights Do U Think I Can Run/ Also I See Elading Solar Light (Http://Www.Ebay.Com/Itm/Eleding-Pure-Digital-Solar-Powered-Ddc-Core-80-Led-Security-Flood-Spot-Lights-/111056358247?Pt=Lh_Defaultdomain_0&Hash=Item19db798b67 ) But Dont Know Wich One Is Better, The Solar Panel That It Use Is Only 3W For A Single Light...Help Pls ...Thanks In Advance...
3 w for 12 hours/night is 36 watt hours. You'll get about 500 watt hours/day from your panel on the average, which for a 12 volt battery is about 40 ampere hours. You can get an 80 amp-hour sealed gel cell battery to charge with this panel (with a suitable charge controller). You want to size your lights so the battery can provide three days of light without discharging it more than 50%, so that's abnout 600 watt-hours/3/36 = about 4 orf 5 lights. Cost for this system woulkd be over $500.
The advantage of the self contained light is they use a lithium or nickel battery rather than a lead acid, so it can run totally dead without damage (unmlike a sealed lead-acid battery). That would be a far cheaper way to go.

Have A Question About Mobile Homes And Solar Panels!!!?
Hi. I Hate The Energy Company. I Hate My Carbon Footprint. I Will Likely Move To A Piece Of Property And Put A Decent-Sized Mobile Home On It. I Want Solar Panels So I Can Get My Own Power. I Live In The State Of Wisconsin. How Much Would This Approximately Cost? Would I Need Certain Permits? How Many Panels Can Be Used? Thanks For Helping!
I'm not an expert on solar panels.... However, if you find they are expensive, I have a suggestion for eliminating a cost for heating... look into geo-thermal heating. It's a one time fee, they basically drill into the earth and heat your home with natural heat from underground. That wouldn't supply you all your power, but could cut down on the cost of solar panels, so you could use them simply for lights etc and not heat as well.... and I'm sure it would increase your re-sale value.
