Overview and Testing Canon Vixia R500 Camera with external Mic at our off grid solar cabin
Good morning bill and rosa our off grid solar cabin im trying to test out this new camera. with a microphone and also i have no clue what it sounds like. but as you can see its pretty foggy here. drawing in about 130 watts of solar of the roof up there but uh see if i can get you a better shot out of this but i did change out the uh turbine with a new tail wider longer tail. and uh put the little barrings up there and i will editing more tutorial cause i did.
About 20 to 30 minutes of me taking it off and putting it on and all the work I did so that will take a little time to try and go through and clean it up I did that and see if i can get around here without getting to muddy. its a mess around here. and then i put in another piece of stove pipe and just because I wanted to and gave it support straps cause its pretty high up there now. and we got our first egg off of one of our hens.
A little brown hen that came off the nest she did lay in the nest. which was cool. usually they dont start off laying in the nest. but we took care of them and had to go pull my pickup truck out of the bog went to help my neighbor and sunk the pickup truck its a mess. but we came home and thats what we pretty much attacked. let me get up here and walk across my little path be glad when it dries out a little bit. but thats what we did.
The tutorial is coming out were i put that up there and respond and a little bit a wind that thing will turn now with out any questions so we will see how that little barring works out. thats about all we did. cloudy and overcast thats what we had going on. there will be some tutorial coming out shortly after I get them all cleaned up and the turbine work and a few other things I was doing but yall have a blessed day. My dad is still kicking but not very high but he is having some good days and bad days.
FYI Four Main Types of Solar Systems
Hi, and welcome to FYI , a new informational tutorial series from Wholesale Solar. My name is Josh Roelofs and today we're going to talk about the different types of solar systems available. The first and most common option for a PV system is a gridtied power system in which the solar panels and your inverter is tied into the household electrical system and it simply offsets your energy usage. A gridtied system offers the lowest overall system cost, fastest return on investment. It saves money on energy expense by sending energy back into the grid and turning your.
Meter backwards. It's ideally suited for people who are trying to save money on energy costs. The drawback to a gridtied system is that it does not offer protection from power outages. When the power goes out, your gridtied system is going to shut down. So if you're in an area where the power is unreliable, or you want to protect against power outages, you'll want to consider one of our other options. A gridtied with battery backup system is going to offer the best and most comprehensive features for most people. It can provide backup power to your appliances during a power outage.
It can also turn back your meter to offset energy costs. This system is especially suitable for people who live in an area where the power is unreliable or people with critical equipment like computers, or a pump, or something you need to run during a power outage. Like coffee. Gridtied with battery backup is going to offer a combination between cost savings and independence from the power grid. An offgrid system is completely independent from the power grid. It's especially great for areas where there's no grid power available, or where it's incredibly expensive to bring.
In the power grid. You can literally buy land anywhere and install your own power system. This offers the highest level of independence for people who are seeking selfsufficiency. However, there's a price for that independence. The batteries are going to wear out quicker because they're being cycled every day. Typically they'll be replaced every 510 years, depending on the system. BUT. did I mention total independence A gridassist system works similar to and uses the same equipment as an offgrid system. Solar panels recharge your batteries and your appliances run off the battery system.
The difference is A gridassisted system can use the power grid as a backup power source. The grid will turn on automatically when the batteries are low, because it's nighttime, or because there's not enough solar power to support your appliances. This will save you some money on your energy bill, especially if you're in an area where they charge higher rates during the day based on TimeofUse Metering. These are your 4 main system options available from Wholesale Solar. If you have questions or need more information, feel free to check out our website or give.
Building an Off Grid Water Tower
All right peeps, we're building a water tower. Just a basic bang it together sort of redneck water tower. So this is what I have so far. I'm going to be setting it up right back here. This is a nice little sunny spot. So I'm going to be moving the beehives over a bit. And sort of right where the first beehive is I'll be putting the water tower. And through the magic of television this is the new water tower. The water pump is hooked up to the battery here.
And I'm emptying this rain barrel we're going up to the new water. This is kind of temporary I've got it setup on some bricks and rock here but I will be getting it nice and level. And I'll get it painted up and I'll put a little outdoor shower under here. So anyways it's filling it up now. I'll fill it about halfway. And I'll hook some hoses up to it and we'll give it a test. I'm in the process of moving these beehives. It's not the most ideal spot for a shower.
How Solar Energy Is Converted To Electricity Through Solar Panels
Sunlight is made up of tiny packets of energy, called photons. Every minute, enough of this energy reaches the earth to meet the world's energy demand for a whole year. Photovoltaic panels consists of many solar cells, these are materials made like silicon, one of the most common elements on earth. The individual cell is designed with a positive and a negative layer to create an electric field, just like in the battery. As photons are absorb in the cell, their energy causes electrons to come free. The electrons move towards the bottom of the cell, and exit through the connecting wire. This flow of.
DIY Solar Panel System Cost
The total of the system and materials was $22K. I ended up spending about another $1,800 in permit fees and a structural engineer and $400 for an electrician, several hundred dollars for a guy to come help me out for the two afternoons he spent with me. Xcel Energy gave me $16,538 rebate. Fix cost based on the number of kilowatts you are installing and has nothing to do with how much you pay the permit office or the electrician. My final cost after rebate was $7,237. I started my research in solar probably about a year before I actually installed it went.
And got a couple of bids from some of the local solar people both from contractors that my friends have used as well as just searching the internet and while talking to one of the guys I find of developed a good feeling from him, and I asked the question Would it be possible to do some of the work myself and kind of learn along the way he said Sure I absolutely support the doityourselfer DIY so I said why don't you throw me bids, what it would cost just come home and have solar one day and what it would cost to have.
It done where I do some or all the work myself. And throw them both to me and I said let's try the second one. The guys name is Steve Cross from Sun Spot Solar. I gave him my electric bills and said this is how much I think I need to generate and he said I agree and lets do these types of panels 180 watts each, you will need some where around 19 to 22 we figured out 21 fit pretty well. So I went and got all the permit information from Golden, filled it out. He came by 12.
Hour one day he type all the Xcel application on the internet and I kind of ran the process and when I had a question I would just send him an email and he helped me out. I think in parallel we order the equipment he dropped off in my driveway. Then one of his installers came out and helped me for two afternoons and I pretty much myself put in the whole rack system on the roof and the installer came out and helped me kind of a two man job carrying the panels up, putting the panels down and bracketing them down.
