Your Questions About Solar Power

Sharon asks…

What's the most efficient way to make electricity from solar power on a large scale?

What's the most efficient way to make electricity from solar power on a large scale? Is it using photovoltaic cells, or mirros and a turbine or what? I'd be interested in a web site that compares all the options by efficiency, cost, reliability in cloudy weather, and stuff like that.

Develope more powerful mirrors to harness the solar rays

Steven asks…

How big should solar panel be to power up my house, if our average is 1000 kilowatts per/month?

I live on the rea sea coast of Egypt (Hurghada), and I really want my parents to use solar power. How big or how many panels do we need. Our house uses around 1000 KiloWatts per/month

ssadmin answers:

The first move before installing solar is reduced your load.

1000kwh is allot of power and there are probably opportunities to reduce the load without sacrificing comfort or lifestyle.

Solar Thermal or hot water from the sun is cheaper and more efficient than PV or electric. Consider one of these systems first and you will greatly reduce your load. ( I assume you use electric heat for water based on your area)

With your current usage I would guess closer to a 6kw system to satisfy your current needs

your usage is roughly 33 kwh per day

Sandra asks…

What is a good site for information about solar power for businesses?

I'm looking for information for a project i'm doing. it involves using solar energy to power part of a shopping mall.

Laura asks…

How does solar power genertors work?

Would like to know how solar power works. Also what does it takes to build one. How much is the cost. How much will it produce In savings from the electric companys. Is bigger always better. Can we sell this back to the electic company? Sure hope someone can help me. I believe this could make alot of money and also help us become more indepanted.

ssadmin answers:

Well, I applaud your ingenuity but that is already being done albeit not in massive amounts. It is also more expensive to build a house that is solar powered but people are doing it here and there and in the long run, it does save money. All the info you need is on the net but I doubt you can build from scratch. You'd have to purchase kits from companies that produce solar panels and generators.

George asks…

How to develop our own solar power for the home?

Developing solar power is quite tough but it has high advantages over it…Suggest me a good idea about it….

ssadmin answers:

You need four main components to made the own solar power for home.. They are solar panels, batteries, charge controller, inverter.. Solar panels which can be quite expensive if purchased retail and the best way to save some cash is to build them yourself. Source out a good guide and follow it correctly and you shouldn't have a problem.quite expensive if purchased retail and the best way to save some cash is to build them yourself. Source out a good guide and follow it correctly and you shouldn't have a problem.These moderate the amount of power transferred from the solar panels to the battery. They also help in keeping the batteries from over charging and trickle charge them to help maintain a long life.When your energy is stored in your deep cycle batteries off your home built solar power system, it is stored as Direct Current (DC). In order to be able to use it for household appliances the power must be converted to Alternating Current (AC). That is the job of a power inverter.
