of these solar panels? i am talking about the feasability in India. please advice.

ssadmin answers:

You can use passive solar energy without solar panels. Some of those are very low-tech – solar ovens, water heaters and the like can be constructed with dark plastic, tin foil and some ingenuity if you've got a good set of plans to work from.

For generating electricity though, it's trickier – though there are some people who claim to have kits and plans available that are considerably cheaper than the $25,000 and up, up, up that a contractor will charge for professional installation. Most of those savings are in the labor, I'm sure.

Ken asks…

how much maintenance is needed to power a home using solar panels?

My siblings and I all live in different parts of the country. Both or our parents are dead. they have a home in the country. To pay utility bills for this home as well as our own is expensive. If enough electricity could be generated to keep the pipes from freezing in the winter at little or no cost to us it would be great. I was wondering about solar. Can anyone give me any pointers?

ssadmin answers:

The initial installation of a solar electric system is expensive. If it is a quality unit the regulator/converter unit will hold up for a long time with little or no maintenance. You will also have a bank of batteries which may require some maintenance depending on the type. The system will have to be matched to the expected load, in your case heat tape on the pipes. The panels on the roof will have to be cleaned and keep clear of snow and ice. For more specifics you should contact a solar contractor. The contractor will determine the system that best meets your needs and estimate the cost.
