Frequently Asked Questions
With Is The Best Ratings For Solar Panels In Manufacturer For World?
The best PV solar panels are the ones I have just had installed. They were SunPower 333w panels which were approximately 1m x 1.6m each in size. There are only a few SP installers in the UK, but I used London Solar Energy who were recommended to me.. Great guys who did a great job.
Which Countries Have The Most Solar Panels?
In 2007 the world produced 2826 MegaWatts of solar power. 47% of that was produced in Germany and 23% in Spain. (GO GERMANY). So that you have got something to compare that with: in 2010 the world will produce 1,759,000 MW of coal-fire power. There are some really interesting facts on these websites:
One answer suggest Australia. Unfortunately the Federal government let what would of been the worlds largest solar power plant project collapse. And only promised a 5% cut in emissions by 2020. Not happy Kevin.
What Is The Best Solar Panels To Power Your Home With?
I Need To Power A Refridgerator, And Some Smaller Items. I Don'T Plan To Operate
An Ac Unit.
Any commercial-grade solar panel will do the trick. The bigger question is how much you need, and whether you need storage.
If you plan to go off-the-grid, you will need to design a large enough system to provide both for normal use and sufficient storage to carry you through periods of no sun - and overnight, of course.
The rule-of-thumb is approximately 3 x your peak load, with sufficient storage for a full 24 hours of no sun.
Assume your refrigerator uses an average of 800 watts per hour and operates for 8 hours per day (probably a bit high in both cases, but better to be cautious). Assume your total additional average load is also 800 watts - meaning _NO_ hair dryer, flat-screen television, heavy-duty vacuum cleaner, electric heater, clothes washer, dishwasher, electric stove, and so forth.
You will need a 5,000 watt system with 30,000 "watts" of storage. That is a pretty large bank of batteries as you might imagine.
Your approximate installed-cost will be something on the order of $40,000 - $60,000, or $8 - $12/watt depending on a lot of factors.
What Can A 1 Watt Solar Panel Power?
I'M Thinking Of Getting A Solar Panel For My House To Help Cut Back On Power Use (I Live In New Mexico). What Sort Of Appliances Can I Run On A 1 Watt Solar Panel? Is It Worth It To Get A Single Watt Panel Or Is It More Efficient To Get A Multi-Watt Panel?
New Mexico is a good area for solar.
Unfortunately, solar electric panels generally don't save money over grid electricity until the installed system is large - like, 1000 watts or more, 4000 watts being a common size. This costs many thousands of dollars up front, which hopefully are paid back over the years in electricity savings.
There are a couple other things to look into, though. The first is conservation and efficiency. If you can shade and insulate your house so that the air conditioner doesn't run so much, that can pay for itself in a year.
Also, NM is an excellent place for a solar water heater. Call a solar installer to see how much it would cost. That would pay back in a few years, with a much smaller investment than solar electric.
What Is The Best Brand Or Kind Of Solar Panels To Buy?
The ones that NASA uses in space are by far the best ones. But they have a very high price tag.
Or you can buy the cheaper stuff. I have seen some solar panels that only put out 5 watts but are bigger then a 24 watt panel.
Your best bet would be to stick with brands like Sharp, Sanyo, SunWize and a few other comon brands. They are standard brands because they are the standard. If you got the extra money you could buy the stuff nasa uses or maybe the cheapies you find at harbor freight if you have a lot of room.
It is up to you. toss your coin.
