Your Questions About Solar Powered Generator

Paul asks…

can we supply electricity back to main grid?

if we have power generator or solar generator at home, so is it possible to send the extra power supply back to the main electric grid?

ssadmin answers:

Not only is it possible, it is encouraged. Many people are now producing individually, much more power on some days than they can use. This not only can be sent back to the power companies, but it can actually give you a credit that can be tapped for high usage days.

Mary asks…

wind/solar power in Boston?

I have a lot of plants in one room of my apartment, and I want to get some more. I have 17 full-spectrum lightbulbs that equal 40 or 60 watt light of typical bulbs while using 13 or 17 watts of power (they have the spiral shape, I can't think of the name). I would like to replace these lamps with a string of 25. Is there any way to get a solar or wind generator that would charge a battery to run these lights 12-14 hours per day? I am on a hill, so there is plenty of sun in summer, and a good amount of wind year-round.

Thanks!

Richard asks…

Why do Occupy Wall Street liberals demand the return of their “fossil fuel generators”?

I thought liberals know how to live on Green Energy. Why were they using diesel to light all of their iphones and ipads? Why not some Solyndra solar powered generators or some other junk that they demand that we all use?

MANHATTAN — Occupy Wall Street protesters are putting the heat on the FDNY after the fire department confiscated the group's generators last week from Zuccotti Park, according to a letter from the group.

The demonstrators, represented by attorneys from the National Lawyers Guild, said that the confiscation of six generators as well as fuel on Friday morning was merely a pretext by the city to begin dismantling their Lower Manhattan encampment, which has been in place since Sept. 17

Don't you know that logic confuses liberals? Stop it. Just stop it. It is not fair to be logical when they don't have the ability to counter you.

when was 1st solar powered generator built?

This old book by John Perlin http://www.amazon.com/Space-Earth-Story-Solar-Electricity/dp/0937948144 talks about the history of solar power. In the first chapter is a picture of a guy around the turn of the century pumping water using non-concentrated solar power.

James asks…

Can I use a solar powered water pump to feed water to a micro hydro generator?

So here's my situation. I have a slow flowing creek in my back yard and can't find any place to get enough height to gravity feed a hydro generator.

So what I was thinking was what if I use a 12 volt pump connected to a solar setup to pump water directly into a micro hydro generator. I'm fairly sure I can rig up a solar charging kit that will keep a low powered pump running 24/7. The water would be pumped from the creek and the waste water would end up back in the creek.

Obviously gravity fed would be best but right now I'm stuck with a undershot water wheel option or a solar powered pump to put out a pressurized jet.

I'm open to alternative suggestions for a hydro setup idea. Just need some advice if this plan would work. Thanks.

You could do that, the problem is that it would be a lot cheaper to just use the solar electric system directly. By adding the extra step of adding the pump & hydro generator, you are throwing perhaps 75% of that expensive solar power away.

In other words, the solar electric systems would have to be several times bigger and more expensive just to compensate for the extra losses inherent in the motor, pump, & hydro generator.
