Solar Panels for a brighter future. April 12, 2011



So I have decided to put solar panels on my house, which for me a perfectionist, I am going to do alot of research first. It seems that
Solar Spheral
has everything I will need, and I am debating on how many panels to install. The question is, do I want to have no bill or a small electric bill every month. Of course the answer is obvious, but as I am on a small budget, I have to do this the right way.
So I found out that to put together your solar panels, you will need cells, wiring, and diodes, which thankfully come with one of their fancy kits. I thought for sure I was going to have to learn a bunch of mumbo jumbo from multiple sites, but I didn’t.

They have a email support, which is nice, because I really don’t know what I’m doing to put this stuff on my house. But all in all, its a project that Im ready to tackle, in the hopes of my electric bills diminishing. Soon my house will be basking in the sun and soaking it up like my puppy, who loves to sun bath. It makes me wonder, does he store energy much like the solar cells?
Anyways, to anyone out there who knows a bit about solar panels, please help! Any suggestions or any comments, will help greatly. I have a two story house, which I will put the cells on the only one story roof, which faces the east, and gets all the sun. I have a 1,205 sq. ft. house. Thank you!

    good luck on your newest venture getting off the grid. I heard solar cells only absorb when in direct light. So its not cost effective unless you live in one of the arid climate zones. But Its been a very long time since I read up on the subject. Im sure my knowledge is outdated.
    Before taking the plunge with solar, have you considered the possibility of a windmill? Thats what I want to get someday. 🙂

      No your right! Luckily I live in Sunny California, where it rains maybe like 5 times a year. I have thought a windmill, and that is my next step! Takes awhile to save up the money, but its worth it in the long run!

    Well, even if the sun isn’t shining directly on the solar panels, it will still store all of the energy from when it did shine directly onto them to use when it’s not. 🙂

    And this is a wonderful idea! And I love the Windmill idea as well! This is def. going to be something I think about when we sell our condo and buy a house. It could end up saving so much money!

    As of now, solar power and solar related devices are expensive. But it may
    be reduced if most of the people start using it.
