Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Best Solar Panel?
In Terms Of Efficiency And Cost, What Is The Best Solar Panel.
I Am Limited In The Number Of Panels I Can Put Up (Probably 6-8) So They Must Be Efficient, But Cost Is Important Also.
What About These Panels That Can Collect A Wider Range Of Light Frequency?
You have to decide which is more important to you, cost or efficiency.
The most efficient solar panels that are commercially available cost more than twice as much per square foot than the cheapest ones. Ultimately, I believe that the cost per watt was actually better on the cheaper, least efficient panels, but then you need a lot of square footage in order to generate any substantial power.
So it comes down to what you have more of, space or money.
The new panels that collect a wider range of light are not currently available commercially, and when they are I am sure that they will be expensive. I have read the research but have not heard of anyone mass producing them yet.
What Do Solar Panels Do?
How Is Energy From Solar Panels Converted To Energy That Can Be Used For Solar Power?
I Want To Do A Science Project Where I Create My Own Solar Panels Out Of Different Materials To See Which One Will Produce The Greatest Amount Of Energy. Is This A Realistic Topic If It Has To Be Done Before Thanksgiving? If So, How Do I Make The Solar Panels? How Do I Measure/Convert The Energy? Please Help!
Your best bet is making solar water heating panels. You could make them out of copper, PVC, and garden hose, and compare which gets hotter. Check out this site for ideas. http://www.builditsolar.com/
Avoid the scams out there saying you can build your own panel for $200 to power your whole house. You can't. There are some free instructions on the You Build It site that are legit.
Hey Guests, the process is pretty simple, it's called, "Net Metering." The power company does not really pay them, as in send them a check. The credit amount on the bill is put against the power they do have to buy, namely at night when their panels don't do anything but their home still needs electricity. At the end of the month, your neighbors simply pay the power company the difference between what their home used and how much they made. If by chance their panels made more power than the home used all month, the extra credit might be applied to next month, but in most states, as in ours, at the end of the year, any remaining credits are absorbed by the utility company, meaning they keep your excess power, which they sell to somebody else for profit.
It's fine, the idea is for homeowners, like you, to go to the expense and inconvenience to install renewable energy producing equipment, and then when you have excess power, another neighbors home can use it, and the power company gives you a credit for that amount, and charges the other home, they are like a real estate broker, they are brokering extra renewable energy. Don't hate the neighbors for it, join them, get some panels for yourself. We have had solar and wind here for 14 years, my average electric bill is around $12 per month. I also have almost $10,000 invested in my equipment. You can either keep paying the power company, or do for yourself, up to you. Take care, Rudydoo
