How to Install Solar Panels Battery Banks for Solar Energy
Now we come to our battery bank for our Solar system. This one is made up of six volt cells combined in different ways to get the voltage we need for our individual inverters. We're going to be using the big Zantrax 1,000 watt this time, so we'll need two six volt cells, in series, to come up with that twelve volts. If you take your battery and connect a positive to a negative terminal that leaves you with a positive and negative terminal and you can get your twelve volts here. If you connect four batteries in series, positive to negative,.
You come up with twentyfour volts. And if you needed a fortyeight volt system, which is not uncommon, you'd simply expand and use more batteries. But for a twelve volt system we'll just use two. And, they're really the most dangerous part of the system. If you look down inside there, you can see a liquid and that liquid is sulfuric acid and will really seriously burn you and that's why we have a base here, Baking Soda, and if you get that acid in your eyes or in your clothing you can neutralize it with this. So, very.
Important to have this for safety. We can get a look at some of that acid here with the hydrometer, this is what you measure the actual specific gravity of the acid inside. And you can see we have several of these disks floating. We have about three disks floating with one at the bottom. So we know that this two batteries, or at least this battery, is about seventyfive percent charged. So, we're going to be very careful with that acid and stick this back here in our little cup. It's also important to note that the gases that.

Well a long awaited and happy ending to a report tonight from a magnet couple who were trying to get solar power contractors a pain to have solar panels installed on their home but as get gephardt reported several weeks ago the contractor just vanished met her now what the followup to a guy is not by a long shot this contractor actually show up to do the job they are paid to do but the solar panels are now installed tonight the reason for this happy and incomes thanks to a another solar power company which are my original report and.
Called me after saying that they wanted to help that is the sound of bill and Catherine felt solar panels finally being installed on their home but this is not the company that the felt paid to do the job these are all of them here as I first reported several weeks ago the garage floor is where the felts solar panels have SAT for months the company they hired called going solar Utah seemingly disappeared bill and Catherine paid $13,000 for the panels and for the installation but they only got half of what they ordered and without the installation they were.
Paying their power bill and for these useless panels were out a lot of money on this every single month and it hurts us my investigation found that going solar Utah has several names including RMW solar and triplea going green all companies owned by the same man whalen windrow and all registered to this address in Sandy last we heard alaska somewheres all of my attempts to contact windrow were unsuccessful we got the system installed in one day enter chat ho fines of synergy power he saw my investigation and says he felt.
Compelled to step in installing those panels for free we feel great about doing this this is something that we are very happy to do for a lot of a lot of customers bill and catherine say they feel overjoyed and humbled now that they have working solar panels on the roof no thanks to the company they hired to install them it's great is it actually was bringing tears to my because they help and a quick reaction from that story that you just saw the person who's mugshot you saw that story that was not a little window that was another man who.
At some point we thought might have been associated with the company synergy power the company that stepped in to help in this case call themselves the most trusted solar contractor in Utah they've done lots of small jobs pretty panels on people's homes and according to their website a few big jobs including putting panels on the roof of the aquarium down there in Draper you probably want me to investigate give me a call when the Beretta 18' 1250 GTB that TV and if I can help you may be kind hearted company will see the story.
SolarCity Unveils Worlds Most Efficient Rooftop Solar Panel with more than 22 Module Efficiency.
The Sun provides endless energy, but the average solar cell panel can convert only 14 to 20 of the energy it collects into usable electricity. Now, American energy company SolarCity has built the world's most efficient rooftop solar panel, with a module efficiency exceeding 22 percent. The new SolarCity panel generates more power per square foot and harvests more energy over a year than any other rooftop panel in production, and will be the highest volume solar panel manufactured in the Western Hemisphere. SolarCity will begin producing the first modules in small quantities this month at its 100.
MW pilot facility, but the majority of the new solar panels will ultimately be produced at SolarCity's 1 GW facility in Buffalo, New York. SolarCity expects to be producing between 9,000 10,000 solar panels each day with similar efficiency when the Buffalo facility reaches full capacity. SolarCity's panel was measured with 22.04 percent modulelevel efficiency by Renewable Energy Test Center, a thirdparty certification testing provider for photovoltaic and renewable energy products. SolarCity's new panel is created via a proprietary process that significantly reduces the manufacturing cost relative to other highefficiency technologies, and it.
How to Install Solar Panels Tools for Installing Solar Energy System
Now let's get a look at the tools we'll need to safely install this job. Well, we've got a couple of noncontact AC and DC warning beepers here. We've got a AC wiggy that tests for voltages up to 600 volts on the AC side. We've got a standard digital volt home meter for various testing purposes, and the more standard tools razor knifes, screwdrivers, diagonal cutters, linesmen pliers for twisting wires, smaller pliers, and of course the wire stripper's always handy. I like to have a level just in case we're mounting some stuff.
And the things you may be able to do without are some of these large. Boy these are big, these are for making battery cables. If you've got the crimps you make your battery cable very professional. But they're kind of expensive, you can do without that for a home installed system. And then, of course, we're going to use some miscellaneous hardware to mount our rails to the roof. We'll have some screws and more crimps to get the batteries and other wiring completed, as well as possibly a little bit of spray paint just to touch up some of.

My wife and I have always discussed going solar you know primarily because of the environmental benefits and I think when we learned that financially it was sort of a win as well it sort of made it a nobrainer. We chose SolarCity for a number of reasons. The work was so thorough, it was clear that they were experts, they gave us information right away. Like I saw on the laptop about how much power we generated. It was obvious that they would do a good job and they laid out the process really clearly.
They basically handled everything, whether it was dealing with the utility, any approvals that needed to happen. Any inspections, and then everything was installed and up and running. Part of our offering is to make sure that we're monitoring the solar system. Solar Guard is an online account where our customers can monitor the production of their solar system. SolarCity provides a performance guarantee, that your system will produce as much power as we promised. It is one those rare winwinwins in life. You get to help the environment, you actually save money.
How to Install Solar Panels Wiring for Solar Panels
Alright! We've got the panels mounted and now we're ready to connect the wiring that brings the power down to our charge controller which is located on the ground. We're going to be using this BX style wire which is just twelve gage wire with a wrapping of sturdy aluminum on the outside to protect it from the elements. Typically used in household wiring, pretty common at your home improvement center, twelve gage is adequate for a small system like this. Black wire for our positive connection, the white wire will be negative.
It's also called the neutral in an AC system. But for this we can use the white wire as negative, and then the green will go to our frame as a ground. So, we'll just strip a little bit of wire off here. We've got our DC wires already marked coming from the panels. Red, positive and white is negative. So we'll follow that here, again, and strip these wires down. Special wiring comes out of these panels. It's USE rated versus THHN for instance. And this USE wire is UV stabilized so it can actually be out in the sunlight for many years without.
Degrading. We're using the shielded wire here could be in different styles of conduit or even a UV rated wire for a small installation like this. And your bigger grid type connections, all this can be in conduit and the wire choices would be a little more limited because of the high voltages concerned. But here, twelve to forty volts, we're not really as concerned with that as we might be. Still, it's nice to have everything solid. We're going to use our linesmen pliers here to get a nice solid twist on our positive wires and a little wire nut on top of that, snug.
It down. We've got our negative wire here, and you notice I didn't strip these both at the same time. Even through it's only 40 volts, you can still get a pretty decent shock off of these panels. So, it pays to keep the wires separate. In fact, at the other end here, we're not quite ready to make this connection, we should connect down at the bottom first before making this wire completely hot, just for safety. So now, let's leave this for a moment and go down and wire up our charge controller here in the laundry room.
How to Install Solar Panels Solar Energy System Sizes
Now, we'll talk a little bit about the sizing of these systems. It depends on what you want to actually run, and of course how much money you have. We're going to go on the smaller side, just today. If you're trying to power your whole house, and you had air conditioning, and stoves, and lighting, and computers, and the normal things a normal house has, and you wanted to run it all by solar, you'd be using quite a few of these, or these, and some of the systems we install have up to seventy panels or more, and unfortunately,.
They're maybe a thousand dollars each, so you can see the price goes up, with the amount of load you wish to take over. In our system here, my plan is to take my home office off the grid, and just power up some laptops, and entertainment equipment, so we're going to be using a fairly small system. One or two of these hundred and forty watt panels, charging a bank of perhaps four six volt batteries, and that will give us enough power to run quite a few lights, my laptop, and some entertainment equipment, from the power of the sun.
