The positives of solar power are vast – including independence from large, expensive oil companies.
This guide explains the basic photovoltaic system. How much usable electricity you get from this setup will depend on where you are located (both geographically and site specifically) and what Mother Nature is doing with the weather. You need sun to shine on your solar modules in order for that sun energy to be converted into electricity for you to utilize.
This guide will teach you:
What will your solar power system include?
What is a photovoltaic panel?
Should I use a PV rack or a mounted one?
What type of simple control panel should I use?
What type of wire should I use?
What will this system do?
Should I use inverters?
What is the cost and availability?
Be forewarned about the positives of solar power! Living ever closer to the Sun and the Wind and the Earth can be addictive. Here is a way to start cutting yourself out of the game of destruction played by oil, gas, coal and nuclear industries.
