If the generation of wind and solar, were tried for 40 years the model year?

Since the energy is nuclear. How compare?

100 years people had windmills to pump water from wells. So the windmills were modified to generate electricity for people to have electricity and refrigerators. So people expelled its windmills and was connected to the national grid. Now there is a beginning of a movement in the direction opposite.

How to make a homemade solar oven?

The oven must be made ​​of a cardboard box no more than three feet by three feet by three feet. The reflective surface should be a reflection of the metallic surfaces such as aluminum foil.

Do not use aluminum foil, which is very transparent. You can pick up flat mirrors a junkyard, or use a lot of old polished CD or both. Basically this is what I do: get a boat Gardening orange-brown which is about 1 meter high and place upside down in the center of your chest. Then grab a knife and pull down the 4 corners of your home so that you have on a structure in a cross with his boat in the middle. Then you have all your cd's and flat mirrors and mirrored surfaces paste 4 on the wings of his cross, so that every square inch what is covered and mirrorized. Cut the pieces if necessary. Just remember that you want no cash to show the head of your wings. Basically, you have four solar panels that will be used to focus light to the pan at one point. Since their wings together, we're not done yet. You can focus the beam so it is much more powerful. Here's how: take one of its wings and drawing in a square with a Sharpie marker to be centered. Do not make the square very small, but 1.6foot about 1.6 meters. Then draw lines from the corners of squares in the corners of the wing. These are the lines where a hot knife cutting and a blade on the opposite side. So that, and four collapsible sections trapeze can be wrapped in the interior. Then drill a hole with the edges of trapezoids, where you can enter any type of rope or wire to hold the trapeze bent inward in the place that has a curved reflective plate. Repeat this process with the other three wings. Then you get 4 plastic gardening pots to keep their wings and focus on putting them under the wings so that the radius of the solar heat is concentrated at a point directly above the orange pot. No! Now that you have made invention, the mad scientist most impressive of the same mad scientist. Since turkey Action Thanks for the fun of cooking and frying do not use it with your friends! Chris = D

Solar PV cell as it did at home?

In these days in Pakistan and other countries are facing energy shortages, while we we Planty of sunlight, unfortunately, Solar Technology is very expensive and we have no knowledge. Taking a solar cell to power our battery inverter can produce electricity from sunlight without electrcity game.

You may want to think about building your own solar panels … Let me start saying that (Agua-Luna) is a nonprofit organization that live, promote and teach the 100% "off-grid" sufficiency of life and self-realization. "For an idea, which often leave the ranch, but once or twice a year. The following steps were taking directly from a DIY guide to offer that want to run their homes with solar energy, reducing your monthly bills or even selling-up power to the utilities. The full guide is available. It is very simple, but if you have any problems, please send us an email directly to can walk you threw the process. The materials you will need … A sheet of copper flashing from the hardware store. This normally costs about $ 5.00 per square foot. We will need about half a square meter. Two alligator clips. A sensitive micro-ammeter that can read currents between 10 and 50 microamperes. Radio Shack sells small multimeters LCD will do, but uses a light rail surplus with a needle. An electric stove. My kitchen stove is gas, so I bought a small range of electric burner for about $ 25. The little 700 watt burners probably will not work – mine is 1100 watts, so the burner gets red hot. A bottle large clear plastic you can cut the top. I used a 2 liter bottle of spring water. A large mouth glass jar will also work. Table salt. We want a few tablespoons of salt. Tap water. Sandpaper or a wire brush in an electric drill. tin snips to cut the copper sheet. The first step coverage is to cut a piece of copper, which is about the size of the stove. Wash your hands so you do not have any grease or oil on them. Then wash the film copper with soap or detergent to get the oil or fat with it. Use the sandpaper or wire brush to thoroughly clean the copper sheeting, so that any sulphide or other light corrosion is removed. Next, place the clean copper sheet and dry in the burner and turn the burner at the highest level. As the copper starts to heat up, you can find beautiful patterns oxide begins to form. Oranges, purples, reds and copper cover. As copper is heated, the colors are replaced by an oxide layer black copper. This is not the oxide we want, but flaking later, showing the reds, oranges, pinks, purples and copper oxide layer underneath. Recent traces of color disappear as the burner gets red hot. When the burner is lit in red, the copper foil is covered with a black coating of copper oxide. Cooking for half an hour, so the black coating is thick. This is important because a thick layer flakes off very well, while a thin coat will stay stuck to the copper. After half hour of cooking, turn off the burner. Leave the hot copper on the burner to cool slowly. If it cools too quickly, the black oxide will stay attached to the copper. As the copper cools, it shrinks. Black copper oxide decreases. But you get into different types, which makes the black copper oxide shed. The little black flakes pop off the copper with enough force to make them fly a few inches. This means a little more cleaning effort around the stove, but it is fun to watch. When the copper has cooled to room temperature (this takes about 20 minutes) most of the black oxide will be gone. A light wash hands under running water to remove most of the small pieces. Resist the temptation to remove all the black spots by scrubbing hard or soft copper bending. This can damage the red cuprous oxide layer we need to perform delicate work of the solar cell. Cut another sheet of copper the same size as the first. Bend both pieces gently, so they fit inside the plastic bottle or glass, without touching each other. The copper oxide coating that was facing up on a second plane is usually the best side they face in the bottle, because the surface is smoother, cleaner. Clip attach the two links, with a new copper plate, and one for plate coated copper oxide. Set the clean copper plate to the positive terminal of the meter. Connect the cable card oxide cuprous to the negative terminal of the meter. Now mix a couple of tablespoons of salt into some hot tap water. Stir the saltwater until all the salt dissolves. Then carefully pour the saltwater into the jar, being careful do not get the clip leads wet. The saltwater should not completely cover the plates – you should leave an inch of the plate on the water, so you can move around the cell Solar without the clip leads wet. now place in the sun Development. The solar cell is a battery, even in the dark, and usually show a few microamps of current. That is what is so simple. If you want more detailed process and some photos (you can

turn on the generator or small solor panel for the outlet?

well so I was wondering if I can connect a small generator, or perhaps as a small solar panel and the network Convet simply plug into a wall only if there is a lot more could go back insted of going directly to the network?

I think that a solar panel to charge much more than a phone unless it is a good and great. Now, a generator, yes. You can run a dedicated line to a power Current or two. Be careful when you run it and connect many devices do not overload the capacity of the generators.

Solar Battery Power

solar battery power
Which configuration for a solar cell will power a battery faster, parallel or serial?

Why does one configuration work faster than the other? Can someone explain this to me please?
If all variables were equal, and the two solar panels sat in the same sun which configuration is likely to power a battery more quickly, the one with parallel configuration or serial configuration?

depends on the battery voltage and the solar cell voltage.

You need the solar cell output to be a few volts higher than the battery voltage, so you put the cells in series until the voltage is high enough. Then you can put another equal string(s) in parallel to get more current.

It gets complicated by the fact that the solar cell voltage varies with load and with amount of sun, so in practice you may need more in series to get to the proper voltage.

How to make a solar powered battery charger?

A home base DoItYourself for residential purpose.

The simplest way is to get a battery and a solar panel of a slightly higher voltage than the battery*. Good point Bob B; get a diode, too. Then put the solar panel in full sunlight and connect the positive ends and negative ends** and the battery should charge. The charging is done when the battery’s voltage is what it should be.

This method should not be dangerous with small batteries (AA, AAA, 9V), but don’t use it with a power outlet, and don’t use it to charge, for example, a car battery. Still I take no responsibility for any damage to people or property.

* Test the voltage of the solar panel under the amount of sunlight you plan to use it in.
** This is how I charged my cellphone battery for about 2 months before I got my cellphone fixed. (I didn’t use a solar battery; I connected the battery directly to the charger.)
