Most Efficient Solar Panels
My name is Neville Pettersson and I have created the this site to help regular home owner’s like me make their own
As the price of electricity continues to rise on the backs of rising fossil fuel
prices, and the cost of solar panels declines, installing a solar system for your
home becomes more and more attractive. A home solar system can dramatically reduce
a household's monthly electricity bill or even drop it to zero. The problem is that
even now, a solar system can be very expensive in up-
A large amount of that cost, however,
It's even possible to reduce the cost still further by making your own solar panels. That's a good deal more work, though, so what will be discussed here is a "middle way" as it were: installing your own solar system using a kit.
Solar power kits come in two main types, grid-
At any time that you are using more power than your solar system produces (e.g. at night), you buy electricity from the utility using the credit for the power you produced earlier. At the end of the month, if you have used more electricity than you produced, the utility sends you a bill for the difference; if you have produced more than you used, the utility sends you a check.
The difference in price between the two types of kits is not great, although off-
Compare this to the cost of installing a solar system, which can easily run more than $20,000, and obviously using a kit represents considerable savings!
For a household with an average electric bill of $150 per month, the new solar system
could pay for itself in as little as two and a half years.
A good home solar kit comes with solar panels, all necessary electric and electronic hardware, and mounting racks.
To install one requires some simple and common tools, including screwdrivers, a ladder, and pliers. Depending on your situation, other tools such as a power drill or a saw may also come in handy.
The solar system can be installed in a single day by someone with some experience, but it's better to budget a weekend for the purpose.
