My science fair project I had a big solar cooker made out of card board and tin foil. The next year I did one with corala algae and composting that in to methane and generating electricity from that, so I was really interested into it a long long time ago. The prices were prohibitive and the products really were not available anyway. So I say this an I was really intrigued and the Cary Hayes and REC Solar showed up at Costco. My wife had seen him and and she said he still might be there and I got home from work and Costco was open a little later. And she took me down there and she met him. OK, I gotta do it.

energy-solarpanels.com Electricity is something that we cannot exclude form any part of our lives. The increasing population is putting great pressure on the system all over the world. There are so many countries looking for new sources of electricity. Solar panel can be a great source of electricity and meet the demand of the increasing population. Sun is the most powerful source of energy. The amount of solar power delivered by sun is enormous and it is more than we will ever need. But sun delivers energy which also contains heat and water. We cannot use the energy directly to power a computer. This is why we use solar panels. Solar panels can help us to refine the solar energy and convert it into usable electricity. It is found that if we can build solar panels to cover even 1% of Sahara desert, we will be able to generate enough electricity to run the whole world. You can build solar panels for your home and become self dependent for the supply of electricity. Moreover, as a member of planet earth, we have a duty towards the Mother Nature. We have to keep her alive for keeping the human race alive. Solar panels are environment friendly and you can contribute towards the nature and at the same time meet your family’s electricity demand if you build your own solar panel. If you build solar panel for your home, you will be contributing in keeping the environment free from harmful gases.

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.
