"They did a wonderful job on my system and I would recommend them to my family and friends!" - Georg S. - Chicopee MA

I cannot express my gratitude for going forward with solar panels. From the initial meeting to discuss the possibility to the techs who eventually installed them. But most of all, it is the savings we have experienced. That first month was unbelievable. Solar plus our other electric source combined was less than our usual monthly expense. During the summer when our electric usage is higher because of the air conditioning, our monthly expense was still less than what we have paid with past summer usage. And if that’s not enough…our present electricity is primarily supplied by the solar panels. We have been building up a reserve with our other electricity source and will be able to draw from that all winter when our panels wont’t generate as much electricity. It’s a win-win situation that we’re just thrilled over. Having a fixed rate locked in is another great feature for savings.” – Virgil T. – Westport MA

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Store Solar Energy?
If You Can Store Solar Energy, How Do You Do It And Would It Work With A Home Made Solar Panel

Yes you can store solar energy. I'm guessing that you are talking about electric energy. If so: Use the solar energy to charge a battery. That is current technology's "choice of storage".
At a more basic level you can store solar energy by having it heat your hot water through a simple circulation system of coils exposed to the sun. You can store solar energy to heat your house by having a large mass (concrete, stone, dark-colored drums of water) exposed to the sun - then suck the heat out when you need it.
Going back farther- Burn wood: It is energy from the sun, it can be stored (well, stacked) and is renewable. And, it's good, healthful exercise! I DO know - after a bunch of years in Vermont.

I'm really curious about "home made solar panel" idea. Can you do it? Will what you make serve you better (be more productive or cheaper) than what's on the market?
(I lived on an island with a generator, charger/inverter, battery bank for 5 years. This is curiosity - but more than just idle curiosity.)

I'd appreciate your response to my question(s).

If You Lived In Alaska Would You Invest In Solar Panels For Your Home, Why?
Lol This Might Be A Stupid Question To Ask But Im Really Not Sure If Alaska Is A Good Place To Install Solar Panels... Is It? I Have Exams Tomorrow And This Specific Question Will Be On The Test, If You Think It Is A Bad Or Good Idea, Why? Sorry Im Really Puzzeled Thanks In Advance!

Since this is a school exam question, I think they are only looking for the most basic answer.

The angle of the sun is low in northern latitudes, meaning Alaska gets much less sun than the other states on a year-round basis. That's one reason it's cold. It does warm up with long days in summer, but the amount of sun year-round is still low on an average basis.

That's probably the main reason to answer no. There are some cases where it might be a good idea, for example, if you have an isolated cabin, solar might be the best way to make electricity, expensive as it would be in Alaska.

How Many Solar Panels Do You Need To Run A House?
How Many Solar Panels Do You Need To Run An Air Conditioned House? To Be Exact, An 3,4000 Square Foot House? And How Much Would The Total Cost Be?

My guess is that your real interest is in saving money? If you are thinking long term, solar electricity can save money if you live in a suitable area. It does not have to run the entire house. A modern system will work side-by-side with the normal power you use today, so whether the solar displaces 10% of your electricity or 100%, you can still save money.

The only way to get an accurate estimate of the financials is to ask a solar installer for a quote. Prices of systems vary widely depending on how much power you want, and the local price of labor.
