What materials do you need to make a solar panel?

Generally the materials that you need to build a solar panel will include the following: A battery, some plywood painted with UV paint, wire, diode, Plexiglas, Jones plug, screws, super glue, silicon sealant and a solar cell and a guiding manual to get the job done! Also something to keep in mind for solar cells […]

How much electricity do solar panels produce in a year?

The answer to how much electricity solar panels will produce in a year is hard to answer because it depends on a number of different factors like weather, how clean the solar panels are, distance from the equator, what time during the day, shading and maximal output. But a very rough estimate for a 100 […]

How many watts do solar panels produce?

The number of watts that a solar panel produces depend on different factors, for example the watt-class, the shading of the solar panel but especially the location in which the solar panel is installed. Solar panels will produce more watts in very high irradiated areas, areas that have a lot of sun light, than in […]

How many solar panels do I need to run my house?

The amount of solar panels needed to run a solar system in your house can be estimated by how much you approximately pay for your monthly electricity bill. There are many solar panel calculators available online by which you can determine the approximate number of solar panels you will need for your home simply entering […]

Do solar panels work with artificial light?

Yes, solar panels will work under artificial light but not as efficiently. One concept that is worth considering regarding this matter between solar panels and artificial light is a fundamental law of physics. Whenever energy is changed from one form to another, what results is a net loss. It is highly recommended that you just […]

What is the differences between a Mono-crystalline and Polycrystalline solar panel?

The difference between mono-crystalline and polycrystalline solar panels is that one is produced from a single crystal of silicon and the other is produced from a piece of silicon consisting of many crystals.

How is the solar industry working towards improving its technology?

In recent years research for improving solar technology has been an ongoing process. There has been a lot of research done to improve solar power technology. In Europe there is the European Kestcells Project that is funded with 3.7 million euros as researchers are looking to replace the present material in solar technology to another […]

Is shade a problem for solar panel?

Yes, shade can be a problem because there are a number of individual solar cells within a solar panel that need to be expose fully to sunlight. This is mainly because of the way the wiring of the solar panels are designed. So for example if there were ten individual solar cells and due to […]

Which direction should I place my solar panel?

Direction and angles are the one of the most important factors in setting up a system. These issues can affect the performance and the efficiency of the whole system. Ususally we suggest people to place the panels facing south, that is the general direction. But tons of factors can vary the exact directions and angles, […]
