Leslie Said:How much electricity can i generate using solar panels or other renewable energy sources for my home?
We Answered:Check the solar panel ratings.
Jacqueline Said:who already used solar panel for supply home electricity?
We Answered:Hey Lee, there are literally thousands of people and places using solar energy. In the United States alone, over 100,000 homes and businesses produce and use some level of solar power for their electric loads, and the number increases each day.
Our home has been powered by the wind and sun for 11 years now. We are still connected to he electric grid, but our average electric bill is about $6 per month. Solar power is still very small, amounting to less than 1% of our global energy mix, but at the rate we are building and installing panels and solar farms, that number will be 10 times that amount in just one generation. If you want to see a plan for the largest solar farm in the world, go to google and type in, "North Africa Solar Project." The Germans are primarily behind this, a plan to build a huge solar thermal electric farm in the Sahara Desert to run all of Europe. There are other projects too. Chances are there are people near you that have some level of solar power now, and you just are not aware of it. I'll list some other sources below for you. Take care Lee, Rudydoo
Marcia Said:can solar energy generate electricity in a home alone? what is needed?.?
We Answered:Depending on locality, a windmill or water power (close to a stream) may be your best, most cost effective solution. ~
Solar cells only work during the day, and would need more storage (batteries) than the other sources. On cloudy days your power production will drop quite a bit.
You'll also need electronic control equipment to give you the voltage and frequency (50HZ or 60Hz) needed by most equipment.
I recently check and found solar cells with 2.5KW capacity for about $7,500 which was low compared with what most places charge.
