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!

Solar Panel Review April 1, 2011

Solar Panels.


Many think it is expensive to add solar panels to your house. Just in the last 6 months two of my neighbors have added solar panels. So it got me thinking, there is got to be an easy way to do this, and at a good price. I found this website.

www.spheralsolar.com

What I enjoyed about this site was that they had learning kits, if you felt a little afraid to do it yourself, but wanted to learn how. I bought the first learning tool listed.






They are a company based in Colorado, and they live off the grid themselves. I was really pleased with the timely manner they answered my questions through email. I would recommend reasearching how to install this, but once you do, its easy.




Heres a couple examples of What the solar kits look like from their site.

Sun set: Complete 1.8 kW grid tie solar kit

So keep in mind that you will need a sunny area on your house or yard, from 11:00Am to 6:00 PM daily. You can recieve tax rebates for your solar panels depending on your systems performance. You can start small and add more in the future, anything taking away from your electricity bill is worth it! If you spend from $100-200 a month on electric power, I would highly suggest switching to solar power.They also have charging kits for your cell phones or laptops, which are very useful! They charge in the sun then you can bring them inside to use them. My house is under construction right now, I will provide pictures when it is finished.
