Solar Panel Installation


Why should I invest in a solar panel installation?

With the rising costs of gas and electricity, it is becoming more and more popular to opt for solar electricity. Solar panel installation was once considered as a very costly process that only wealthy families would invest in. However, these days there are now solar panel companies who provide professional, affordable and profitable solar panel installations.

5 Reasons why it makes sense to opt for solar panel installation

Reduce your energy bills and carbon footprint.
Make use of the most abundant energy source available to mankind, insulating yourself from the inevitable and continuing price rises resulting from ever depleting fossil fuel sources.
Earn money tax free for the next 25 years guaranteed from the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) Clean Energy Cash Back scheme.
Make a sound, long term investment with returns of between 9-18%.
Make use of a reliable, safe and environmentally friendly technology.

The Feed in Tariff

Feed in Tariffs (FIT) became available in early 2010, and provide financial rewards for households and businesses generating their own electricity. In essence, the FIT system means that energy suppliers are obliged to make payments to households who produce their own electricity.

These payments can come in two forms, either by an index linked tax free payment from your energy supplier for every unit of electricity you produce, or with a payment for the energy you produce but do not use, which is exported to the grid.

How do solar panels work?

Solar energy can be harnessed in a number of ways, but one of the fastest growing energy technologies in percentage terms in recent years according to the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change, is making use of photovoltaic solar panels. In its most basic formulation solar panels make use of the sun’s energy by using photovoltaic cells to convert light directly into electricity. As the cells can only convert light, they will not work at night, but fortunately a solar panel installation will work during the day time even when it is cloudy.

The electricity which is generated from the solar panel installation is then fed into your normal household circuits and will during the day power your everyday appliances such as your television and washing machine. Any electricity which is not used from the solar panel installation will not be put to waste, but will instead be measured using a meter and exported to the grid; a process for which you will receive financial reward.  A solar panel installation therefore offers an intuitive and reliable power source for your home.

Once your solar panels have been installed they require very little attention and with no moving parts they’re essentially maintenance free, allowing you to simply relax and enjoy your new source of energy. To make the process even easier, solar panels also require no planning permission unless your building is listed in a conservation or world heritage site.

Overall, making use of solar power through solar panels is a hassle free and reliable approach to energy production.

    How that’s inverter working out? I once bought a inverter from Harbor
    Freight and it broke two weeks later.

  2. john roeser says:

    Are these brand of batteries very good? Does adding more batteries raise
    the voltage like in a flash light? Like are 3 batts going to put out 36
    volts? I’m ignorant when it comes go that.

  3. Adalene Alicea says:

    I will also try to do this in Trinidad & Tobago as it’s sunny and would
    help my mum out.

  4. Mikhail Nebesa says:

    is it any chance to make a small version of it? like phone solar power

  5. made a little solar power system too. I used two 145 watt panels and 4
    six volt golf cart batteries. I got my charge controller from Midnight
    I works great. I can power my freezer if needed. I also have my TV, router,
    AT&T box and several lights hooked up. I put in a breaker box and can turn
    the panels off going to the charge controller, and shunt it to a grid tie
    inverter. That way I can keep a battery bank charged for emergencies and
    then put back to the grid so I don’t wast any electrons.

  6. Chuck Norris says:

    can i leave the batteries hooked up with the panels for ever ? i want to
    work on outdoor lighting system.

  7. Rolando Santiago says:

    How about the specification of the charge controller? how will you match
    it with the solar panels PV volts? Some solar controller says Nominal
    System voltage: 12/24VDC, Maximum PV input voltage: 50V, Nominal charge/
    discharge current: 10A, LED display and the solar panel has this
    specs 120W Solar Panel (600V Maximum System Voltage).

  8. intercepted sparow says:

    One question please. With 3x100AH batteries in pararell connection
    how many panels(12v), do i need to be fully charged??? for now i
    got only one, which i know its useless

  9. PapaLou4Christ says:

    Cool thanks.

  10. edpannewyork says:

    Your illustration is very informative.. thanks for it. Just to ask one
    thing. Is there’s any limit on the number of batteries you can ad it to?..
    I plan to purchase 6 batteries and to hook it to 10amp 24v 2000watts
    inverter. Is this fine to do?.. thanks

  11. francis mcdonnell says:

    How did u hook up the meter

  12. J. Ryan Cary says:

    Very easy to understand. Thank you!

  13. Bhawana Rajora says:

    Very nice….thnks…

  14. scot fletcher says:

    have been thinking , it might be better to have 2 charge controllers ,
    split the panels in half, maybe i am thinking too far out of the box,
    wouldn’t that increase the amps but keep the voltage the same?

  15. Evan Schneider says:

    Which batteries do you like? How do i pick one? Thanks and great vid. 

  16. In case of a power outage/ storm will this be powerful enough to turn on a
    TV or computer?

  17. victor marinas says:

    is ok if i dont have charge controller? ty for ur response

  18. nickhow100 says:

    ive heard its better to wire solar panels/wind turbine straight to batterys
    then have the controller wired to the batterys somehow , possibly from its
    battery terminals and so use the controller to pump any overcharge to
    something else like a load or some more batterys , have you heard of doing
    it that way ?

  19. Rob Gaspar says:

    Great! Easy!

  20. Farmer Rob says:

    This is the simplest video that I came across explaining how it all comes


  21. con kakavos says:

    Very good

  22. joe trentadue says:

    nice job

  23. KingZZmonk says:

    Just browsing and I thought I would help… Yes I cannot see that being a
    problem. Just check them individually to make sure they will work and are
    not damaged. Link them in parallel plus to plus etc for higher amperage,
    you can make them 24v by linking two in series + to – then use plus from
    one and – from other to form your 24v bank. 24v battery banks… lsay you
    had 10 12v batteries link two sets of 5 12v batteries in parallel, then
    link the two parallel battery sets in series.

  24. KingZZmonk says:

    just as a side note keep in mind they might not have as much amperage as
    the usual 12v deep cycle batteries. also just make sure they are all the
    same type of battery, ie lead acid etc as there are different types on the
    market. I do not know if that may cause problems if they are the same
    voltage. Better safe then a house fire.

  25. the money you could save on electric bill! i wish i had done this years
    ago. how long does it take to charge the battery? im thinking of doing this
    in my van.
