Most were made for heavier items like shingles, but I only needed something to raise a 45 pound solar panel, I had some old 2x4 lumber that I salvaged out of my old patio enclosure. The boards were too short to reach the roof, but I joined two boards together for about a 12 foot length. Then I needed some sort of wheel and track system for the load platform to ride up and down on.

"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.

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.

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

Ever wrestle a full size solar panel up onto the roof of your house? I carried a couple up a ladder but decided that was not safe, either for me or the panel. I looked into pre-made roof hoist and found they cost from $500 up to $2000 or more. Most were made for heavier items like shingles, but I only needed something to raise a 45 pound solar panel, I had some old 2x4 lumber that I salvaged out of my old patio enclosure. The boards were too short to reach the roof, but I joined two boards together for about a 12 foot length. Then I needed some sort of wheel and track system for the load platform to ride up and down on. I thought about some small wheels rolling against the wood, but it was a little too rough and warped for that. Then I found these nifty trolley wheels that fit into regular uni-strut channel. So 4 trolley wheels and 4 lengths of 6 foot aluminum channel and I had the track system installed. I bolted the trolley wheels onto a scrap of exterior plywood, added bottom and back supports and the cargo platform was done. Then I added a rope pulley top and bottom along with a rope cleat near the bottom to tie off the rope. Stringing the rope from the top to bottom to top and down gave a 2 to 1 mechanical advantage and is about right for the weight of a panel. The hoist works quite well for what I needed it for. It cost under $200 but all the purchased items can be re-used for other projects if needed. I probably could have used a pair of 10' steel uni-strut sections with some cross bracing and that would have cost about half the price. Hope you find this interesting. Thanks for watching!

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.

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
