Tesla said the product, which generates solar energy without the need for traditional rooftop panels, will be pricier than a conventional roof but will look better and ultimately pay for itself through reduced electricity costs. To get in line for a solar roof, homeowners must put down a $1,000 deposit via Tesla's website. The company said its solar roofs would cost between 10 and 15 percent less than an ordinary new roof that installs traditional solar panels. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/-Xh_G-XJYq4/us-tesla-solar-idUSKBN18629Q http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT...

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.

Following this morning's news that Tesla will begin taking orders for its Solar Roof, the company laid out a few more details via a blog post published this afternoon, including long-awaited pricing information. At the time of the announcement, Musk claimed a Solar Roof would have a similar cost to a standard roof "plus electricity." Enlarge Image The company says Solar Roof will cost 21 dollars and 85 cents per square foot of Solar Roof tile for a 3,000 square foot roof, using the same calculation method in a Consumer Reports roof tile comparison from November 2016. https://www.cnet.com/news/teslas-solar-roof-has-a-price/#ftag=CAD590a51e http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Tech using http://wochit.com

READ IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW: I built a solar water heating system. In this video I show you how I built the water heating solar panels. My current system of twenty panels have the capability to collect 500,000 BTU per sunny day. typically I collect about 300,000 BTU, Still that is enough to easily heat our house for a day The panels cost about $450 to $500 each to build. Still that is much cheeper than buying them off the open market. UPDATE: The second set of solar panels has been plagued with leaks. The joints between the header and the 1/4 I/D tubing keeps springing leaks. I do not know why this set keeps leaking, and the first set (after three years of use), has not. For a DESIGN IMPROVEMENT I now wrap rings of 8 or 10 guage copper house wire around the joints before soldering. This holds a fillet of solder at each of the joints and dramatically decreases the leakage opportunity. I plan to make a video of this improvment when I get time.

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’s Solar Roof panels are a way to both protect a home and to power it with solar energy. Unfortunately, since every roof is different, there is not set budget on how much converting to Tesla’s Solar Roof panels will cost. Tesla has resolved this by creating a calculator that will estimate the relative figure it would individual houses. Anyone who interested just needs to provide their home address, the square footage of their home, how many stories their home is, and how much solar roofing they will need. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/techradar/allnews/~3/BiJR9PJhb-M/heres-how-much-going-solar-with-teslas-panels-would-cost-you http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Entertainment using http://wochit.com

The sun's rays can hit some roads for up to 90 percent of the daylight hours, so companies in Europe and the U.S. are experimenting with building solar panels along or above roads. But are such projects worth the cost? In France one company is hoping to distinguish itself—and reduce costs—with solar panels that are laid directly on the pavement. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Tesla began taking orders on Wednesday for its solar roof tiles, a cornerstone of Elon Musk's strategy to sell a fossil-fuel-free lifestyle under the brand name of its luxury electric vehicles. Tesla said the product, which generates solar energy without the need for traditional rooftop panels, will be pricier than a conventional roof but will look better and ultimately pay for itself through reduced electricity costs. To get in line for a solar roof, homeowners must put down a $1,000 deposit via Tesla's website. The company said its solar roofs would cost between 10 and 15 percent less than an ordinary new roof that installs traditional solar panels. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/-Xh_G-XJYq4/us-tesla-solar-idUSKBN18629Q http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com

Solar Roof If you want to stay cool, park in the sun. The available Solar Roof9 is embedded with solar panels that can power a fan to circulate ambient air through the cabin when Prius is parked in direct sunlight. This feature helps keep cabin air temperature close to that of the outside air for a more comfortable return to the vehicle.
