From the most basic starter kit to a whole home solution, this video goes over the real world costs in 2016 for solar panel systems. This video only covers off grid systems so if you are considering a grid tied system you will need to consider other costs such as professional installation, grid tie inverter(s), and inspections/fees to your utility company.

To fill those batteries has all the logic of the world to use the energy of the sun, but as they always try to go a step ahead, they want systems to be integrated as best as possible at home. From there came the concept of roofs or solar shingles of the house.

"The sun provides more than enough energy in just one hour to supply our planet’s energy needs for an entire year. Your home can capture this free, abundant energy source through rooftop solar tiles, turning sunlight into electricity for immediate use or storage in a Powerwall battery."- Instead of talking about rocket trips to Mars or self-driving cars, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk turned his attention Friday night to a more mundane topic. He came to talk about roofs. But like all things Musk, there was nothing normal about the roofs he came to discuss. On Wisteria Lane, the backlot set of what used to be the Desperate Housewives TV series at Universal Studios Hollywood, Musk showed off a new kind of solar roof that will be offered starting next year through SolarCity, the home solar installation company that he is seeking to merge into Tesla. Instead of a massive, unattractive array of solar panels typically seen in suburbia, SolarCity had installed roof tiles that are solar collector themselves on several of the houses that are part of the film set. Whether meant to emulate clay tiles on a Spanish-style house or shingles on a colonial, Musk says they have 98% of the ray-collecting power of a conventional solar panel, are durable and will last longer than the house itself. Besides being CEO of both electric car maker Tesla and rocket company SpaceX, Musk is chairman of SolarCity: It's run by his cousin and CEO, Lyndon Rive. The splashy event, in which Musk held forth from a stage and talked about the roof installations on the houses around him, not only promoted roofs, but indirectly, Tesla's proposal to acquire SolarCity. The proposal is scheduled to go before both companies' shareholders, but was met with skepticism by some analysts. Talking to reporters after the event, Musk said Tesla-SolarCity vision of the future is "very unwieldy if we're not a combined company." SolarCity sees the tiles and solar roofs as a huge growth driver that also would help separate it from other solar installers. The company believes it might be able to capture as much as 5% of the nation's roofing business in a few years. Solar roofs are a key component of what Musk sees as a home power triad — rooftop solar that collects the sun's rays during the day and stores energy in Tesla's Powerwall home battery system. The power is discharged in the evenings, not only to power the home but to recharge an electric car in the garage like Tesla's Models S, X or the coming Model 3. "Solar and batteries go together like peanut butter and jelly," Musk said.

RENVU Solar Equipment Distribution More technical info: http://www.renvu.com/Racking/Roof-Attachments S-5!® clamps attach to the panel seam by the tightening of two "bullet-nosed" stainless steel setscrews against the seam material. (This is usually done with an industrial grade screwgun.) The setscrews compress the seam material against the opposite wall of the clamp. They will "dimple" the seam material, but will not penetrate it. Threaded holes in the clamp (and stainless hardware provided) enable the easy attachment of various ancillary items to the clamps. The S-5-U clamp is by far our most popular and most versatile clamp. It will fit about 85% of the standing seam profiles manufactured in North America — including most structural and architectural profiles. It can be used on vertically oriented seams, and by rotating the clamp 90 degrees, it can also be used on most horizontal 2" seam profiles. Its simple design, generous dimensioning and multiple hole orientations are what make it so versatile for use with S-5!® snow retention products and other heavy-duty applications. The S-5-S clamps are extraordinarily versatile clamps, specifically created for popular snap-together standing seam profiles. The S-5-S or S-5-S Mini can be used to avoid having to crimp-seam profiles such as Firestone UC4 and New Tech Machinery SS550 and SS675. They also accommodate horizontal seams where the horizontal projection is under 0.54 inches without the need to double fold the seam! The S-5-E clamp is designed specially for double-folded standing seam roof profiles having the appropriate dimensioning. This clamp is also the one recommended for Butler's MR24™. Architects and roof designers choose copper roofing for its timeless elegance and durability. The S-5-B ("B" for "Brass") allows architects to maintain that theme with all equipment and accessories that must be mounted to the roof with permanence and durability consistent with the roof itself. This clamp is specifically designed for double-folded copper standing seam paneling and batten profiles. The S-5-T clamp is specially developed to fit profiles having a "T" shaped seam configuration. It will also work on architectural "single-fold," or "angle-seam" profiles having a horizontal projection of 5/8" or less. Its two-piece design allows it to be easily installed anywhere along the length of the panel seam. The S-5-Z clamp is specially developed to fit profiles having a round "bulb" seam configuration. Its two-piece design allows it to be easily installed anywhere along the length of the rib. The S-5-Z is perfect for S-5!® snow retention products and other heavy-duty applications. The S-5-Q clamp was specifically developed to accommodate metal roof panels having a large, round "bulb" seam configuration up to 29 mm. It will also fit smaller bulb-shaped profiles that were not seamed correctly, allowing the seam to be utilized without modification. The S-5-R clamp was specifically designed for those profiles manufactured by Rib Roof® and roofing types with similar profiles. It can be installed with or without a supplemental sheet metal screw, providing truly unsurpassed holding power. When using the S-5-R for snow retention, the assembly should be specifically engineered to each individual project for maximum protection. The S-5-R clamps is furnished with the hardware shown above. A structural aluminum attachment clamp, the S-5-R is compatible with most common metal roofing materials excluding copper. All included hardware is stainless steel. Please visit www.S-5.com for more information including CAD details, metallurgical compatibilities and specifications. The S-5-K700 clamp was designed with patented S-5!® zero penetration technology for application needs with the very distinctive roof profiles of Stramit Speed Deck Ultra®, Lysaght Klip-Lok 700 Hi-Strength®, Fielders KingKlip®, and roofing types with similar profiles. The S-5-KHD is the most heavy-duty and durable clamp in the S-5!® family. Designed primarily for new construction, this clamp fits the very distinctive profiles of the Lysaght 406®, McElroy Mirage, Metal Sales Clip Loc, and AEP-SPAN Klip-Rib®. This clamp features an insert that is placed on the intermediate seam for extra hold. Significantly stronger than anything else on the market for these profile types, this clamp is geared for snow retention systems and other heavy duty applications in new construction where holding strength is critical. More strength means fewer rows of assembly, and roof warranties remain intact with zero penetration S-5! technology.

Solar panels don't just power your AC on blisteringly hot summer days -- they also take over some of the AC's work themselves. This is according to a study from researchers at the University of California at San Diego, which says that rooftop solar panels not only produce emissions-free electricity, but also cool roofs and buildings to which they are attached. This lowers cooling costs, and offers an additional benefit of going solar. The idea is simple: when sunlight hits your house it warms your roof and pushes heat into your home. Installing solar panels will block this sunlight from hitting your roof, thereby preventing heat from entering your house. The researchers found that solar panels can lower a roof's temperature by 5 degrees Fahrenheit, or about 3 degrees Celsius. This can significantly reduce cooling costs over the life of the solar panels. In fact, the researchers determined that the savings from reduced cooling amount to a 5 percent discount on the solar panels' price. The researchers also discovered that solar panels prevent heat from escaping during the night when it is cooler. This lowers heating costs in the winter and increases the financial returns of the panels. However, the heating benefits of solar panels may not be as pronounced as the cooling benefits. The panels do, after all, reduce the natural heat of your home during the day. Overall, the takeaway from this study is clear: solar doesn't just save money by generating emissions-free electricity. Solar also saves money by increasing a building's total energy efficiency. Admittedly, there are more efficient ways to reduce your heating and cooling costs, but only solar can increase energy efficiency and produce most or all of a building's electricity needs. Add these benefits together, and going solar starts looking even brighter.

View full lesson: https://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-do-solar-panels-work-richard-komp The Earth intercepts a lot of solar power: 173,000 terawatts. That’s 10,000 times more power than the planet’s population uses. So is it possible that one day the world could be completely reliant on solar energy? Richard Komp examines how solar panels convert solar energy to electrical energy. Lesson by Richard Komp, animation by Globizco.

Tesla solar roofs: these beautiful solar panels that show us are of Panasonic. It seems clear that Tesla wants us to become energy generators. Since launching your home battery system - or company - we have seen different moves that have to do with making better use of cleaner energy. The purchase of SolarCity is clearly the most important. To fill those batteries has all the logic of the world to use the energy of the sun, but as they always try to go a step ahead, they want systems to be integrated as best as possible at home. From there came the concept of roofs or solar shingles of the house. The first thing we have to know is that these beautiful solar panels that show us are a thing of Panasonic, its inseparable companion in everything that has to do with batteries - car and home - and energy. The curious thing is that the Japanese company will use the Tesla facilities to create the panels, they will be conceived in the Gigafactory 2, or what is the same, the place where until now SolarCity had its factory (Buffalo). Both companies agree that the use of this technology is exclusively for Tesla, there are no plans to sell to third parties what they produce there. We are told that so far SolarCity and Tesla have been using panels from different suppliers for their residential and commercial projects. From now on, it will only be Panasonic. The new modules (325W) of the Japanese company go into production this summer, and as you can see in the images, the priority is to create panels with better appearance and integration: they do not want to see the seams, only the panels forming a ceiling. #Teslasolarroofs #Tesla #авто #Abantech #технологии #Panasonic #Autos #ElonMusk #cars #EV #Models #car #США #Apple #SolarRoofs #SaveEnergy #climatechange

So far the only options for us are the beautiful/expensive Tesla Solar Roof. Tesla's low profile solar panels aren't available here, and regular panels are kinda ugly. The good news is if I get one more referral, I can give away access to Solar Roof. Use my referral code for $1000 off your next new Model S or X purchase and free unlimited supercharging. I will be giving away Arachnid wheels if I win them. http://ts.la/zacchaeus8490 Invitation code to drive for Uber https://partners.uber.com/i/zacchaeusr5ue Invitation code to drive for Lyft and get up to $200 bonus, also works for rider discounts. https://www.lyft.com/drivers/ZACCHAEUS06798

Visit http://www.diygreenenergyguides.com/earth4energy-diy-solar-panels/ Or, Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8e4jeMapnKs This video demonstrate how a grid-tied home solar power system works. It shows the exact process from the moment sunlight hit the solar panels, the actual power conversion and how the DC(direct current) electricity from the panels converted to AC(alternating current) for home use, as AC is the compatible form of energy for most home appliances. 10 Myths About Home Solar Power System Myth #1: Home Solar Power System Will Be More Efficient, Should You Wait? Fact: These days the media loves to hype emerging technologies, but the truth is we're still using the same solar technology we were back in the 1960's. Since then, solar has become only moderately more efficient (unlike computers or cellphones which experience dramatic improvements in short periods of time). Myth #2: Solar Power Does Not Work In Cloudy, Foggy and Cool Places Fact: Solar panels work just fine in ambient light and will produce significant energy in the fog or on overcast days. In fact, solar panels are actually more efficient at cooler temperatures than hot ones Myth #3: Home Solar Power Energy Is Stored In A Battery Bank Fact: Nearly all modern solar panel systems are grid tied which means they're connected to the conventional electricity grid. Your system generates power during the day and excess is fed back into the grid through a system called net metering. When this happens, your meter spins backwards and your utility company credits you for that power. Myth #4: Solar Panels For Home Needs Constant Maintenance Fact: Solar panels have no moving parts and do not require regular maintenance. Typically the recommendation is to hose off the panels once a year or so, but many panel owners actually never clean the panels and instead rely on the rain to do the job for them. Typically this will cause only a very slight loss in efficiency (about 5%) over the lifetime of the panels. Myth #5 : Home Solar Power Panels Caused Roofs To Leak, Deteriorate or Even Collapse Fact: Solar panels actually protect and preserve the portion of the roof they cover, but don't take our word for it. Check out this picture of solar panels that have been through a hurricane. If there's ever a problem with the roof that needs to be repaired, panels can easily be removed. Myth #6: Home Solar Power System Is Very Expensive and Will Never Pay For Itself Fact: Perhaps one of the most unfortunate solar myths is that it's only for rich people or environmentalists, when in reality many homeowners choose to go solar simply because it eliminates their big monthly electricity bill. In fact, solar is a very wise choice for people who could actually use the extra couple hundred bucks a month that they're currently paying in power bills. Myth #7: When Grid Power Is Out, The Home Can Still Have Power Using Solar Energy Fact: When the power goes out, grid-tied systems go out too. That's because it's not safe to be pushing electricity back out onto the wires while workers may be trying to fix the problem, so your inverter (the big box near your meter that turns DC electricity created by the panels into usable AC current) recognizes that the grid is out and shuts your system off. Myth #8: Home Solar Panels Will Make The Roof Appears Ugly Fact: In the last ten years there's been a growing awareness of how smart renewable energy is from both environmental and economic perspective, so solar panels are finally coming into their own and being regarded as an enhancement instead of an eyesore. It's about time! Homeowners' associations that used to be steadfastly against solar have changed their policies and are now going solar in groups. Myth #9: Installing Home Solar Panels Will Increase Property Tax Fact: In California and many other states, solar installations are property-tax exempt. From an investment perspective, this means that installing solar panels will increase the resale value of your house without costing you an extra dime in property taxes. The same cannot be said for other home investments such as swimming pools, a new deck, etc. Myth #10: Home Solar Panels Require a Tracking System To Follow The Sun's Angle Fact: Though tracking mechanisms can provide efficiency gains for your solar panel system, they typically do not increase efficiency enough to justify the additional expense and maintenance of moving parts in residential situations. More importantly, most homeowners don't have the additional space required for these systems.
