The Sun, To The Outlet: You can have as many panels as you
want, but until you have the right electronics, the power created
could be useless. The power you are creating has to be stored, or
at night time you will have no power. For this we use batteries.
Not just your everyday AA batteries though, we need what is called
a deep cycle battery. Deep cycle batteries are made to be
discharged, and charged back up, many many times. If you did that
with a normal car battery, it would not live very long. Deep
cycles are use in boats for trolling, in golf carts, and even in
some forklifts. If you like to scrounge, ask around your forklift
dealers, and certain manufactures(they all use forklifts) for the
ones they thow out. Golf courses can be good as well.
Make A Solar Power Generator For Less Than $300 - Fearsome
Homepage: Using parts easily available from your local
stores, you can make a small solar power generator for $250 to
$300. Great for power failures and life outside the power grid.
Power your computer, modem, vcr, tv, cameras, lights, or DC
appliances anywhere you go. Use in cabins, boats, tents,
archaeological digs, or while travelling throughout the third
world. Have one in the office store room in case of power failures
in your highrise. I keep mine in my bedroom where it powers my cd
player, turntable, lights, modem, laptop, and (ahem) a back
massager. I run a line out the window to an 8" x 24" panel on the
Tutorial On Off Grid And Renewable Energy: Does the idea of
harnessing the Sun's energy for your electrical needs appeal to
you? Have you listened to the wind and seen it's effects and
wondered how you could utilize that energy for yourself? We have
the equipment and expertise you need to make the most of the
energy of wind and sun for your home, farm, or business.
