An Overview Of A Photovoltaic Solar Cell

The photovoltaic solar cell is a special instrument that causes light to become electrical energy. It works on the basis of a phenomenon called the “photoelectric effect”. Light waves are electromagnetic in nature. If waves of the correct frequency strike a certain metal, electrons become dislodged and flow into conducting wires to produce a current. Continue reading

Are Wind Turbines Really Safe?

Changing wind power into electricity is the reason for deploying wind turbines. If you imagine an old-fashion plane propeller posted on top of an extremely high tower, this is exactly the way wind turbines appear. Electricity is produced by the generator, housed inside the turbine casing. Whenever the rotor is turned by the wind, the motor inside generates power. As with many types of power generators, magnets as well as copper wires comprise the motor and create a charge any time the rotor spins. Continue reading

Is A Solar Panel Electrical System Right For You?

Until approximately a hundred years ago in the West, people only had recourse to renewable energy for heat and light for their homes. They burnt wood and sometimes coal or peat (OK, fossil fuels) and got up when the sun came up and went to bed with the sun too. In, fact a large part of the world’s population still lives like that. Continue reading

Kick The Grid Into Touch By Making Your Own Solar Panels

How would you like to come off the electricity grid? What a dream, eh? Sadly, it will remain a dream for the majority of people because the cost of having solar panels installed professionally hardly warrants the cost. Many experts calculate that it can take well over 10 years to recoup the cost of the professional installation of solar panels. This is way beyond the horizons of most home owners, who would expect a break-even point of three to five years. This is not going to happen in the near future, even with the rapidly rising cost of electricity. Continue reading

Assembling Your Own Solar Panels

Everyone these days is conscious of the issues of climate change, or as the boffins used to call it, global warming. It appears that even those people who call themselves experts do not know what is taking place. It is not very heartening. However, what everyone does know, even without self-styled expert advice, is that the rate that we are using fossil fuel up is unsustainable, that that means that prices will go up and that it looks like the West is on the slippery slope.
