Solar Powered Bike

Here’s a quick video of my electric bike and solar panel kit that charges it. The bike has a 200w motor and a 13ah battery. The bike is power assist, so the motor kicks in when you are pedaling and it makes going up hills a breeze, although you still have to work. The solar panel system that charges the bike is 3 x 80w panels on the roof, down to 20A regulator and 4 x 130ah deep cycle batteries up to a 600w pure sine inverter. The bike draws around 50 amps when charging the battery, and a full charge takes around 4 to 5 hours or so. The solar setup is of course overkill for charging an electric bike, but I use the solar power for other things too. Eventually I’d like to build the solar kit to charge an electric car, when that time comes. My goal was to have a zero emissions mode of powered transport, and this is what has been achieved with the solar powered bike. 🙂

short video describing a small solar power system that i set up at my house. it consists of twelve 1 amp solar panels (15 watts each for a total of 180 watts of power – per hour). i use it to run all lights (CFL’s), fans, tv’s, and stereos in the house. also the microwave, coffee maker, blender, can opener, sandwich grill, toaster, vacuum, computer and anything else i can think of. run time for lights/fans only is approx 8 hours. add in vacuuming, microwaving or toaster along with lights, tv and the fans and the run time is reduced to 4-5 hours a day. i bought solar panels, inverter (1000 watt) and killowatt meter at Harbor Freight tools, the batteries (deep cycle) from walmart and the battery cables from checker auto. total cost was about 00 to 00 For the latest including EXTRA PICS and INFO. – Click on the “WEBSITE LINK” from my youtube channel page.

Filed under Wind and Solar – – Aside from communicating with the opposite sex, what is a Geek’s greatest fear? I’d have to say it would be the fear of losing power! We are always worried about our batteries dying just when we need them most! Due to this, I spent a bit of my own money to buy a Solio Universal Solar Hybrid Charger. That’s right… it can charge from the Sun!! It also has a proprietary cable (ARGH!) that you can use, as well, in case you happen to live where the Sun never shines.
