Saving Energy with Solar Power Using Solar Panels for Water Heaters
What you see here is a solar water heater. So totally different to photovoltaic or to solar electricity. This one is just using the sun to heat up water. And when you look close, I opened it up for you that you can see what's going on there. In here is just a copper pipe. And down there, this is a copper pipe. And on the top there, you see another copper pipe. So now the sun is shining on this whole thing and down here the water is cool and it gets warm because all these metal plates take the heat from the sun and feed.
It into these pipes you see behind there. So when the water gets warm, it goes up and then it feeds in this main pipe up there and there you have hot water. Down there it's still cool, up there it's hot. And there the pipe comes out and this pipe runs into our water heater and is heating the water in the water heater for free. So this thing here is not really sophisticated. You can buy it today much better systems with a higher efficiency. This one is in the moment 30 years old and works for 30 years. And without any problems.
Burning Stuff With 2000F Solar Power!!
In a previous project I found a free tv and turned it into a giant solar scorcher. This shoots out a deadly beam of sunlight, that's hot enough to abuse food, melt metal and burn things you probably shouldn't. Today seemed like a good day to play with my Solar Scorcher. I positioned my frame and found the focal point, then added some concrete tiles as a base for my projects. Ok, I've got power, and I'll test it out with this piece of wood and when the light makes contact.
I've got instant fire. The sunlight at this spot is around 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, enough to melt this spot of concrete into a glowing orange liquid. I'm curious to see what I can do with all this heat so I've filled a glass bottle with water and I'll punch a hole in the cap. It's incredible to see that the instant I focus my lens on the bottle, it starts smoking. Just a few moments later this water is so hot it's boiling, and I'm a little nervous the bottle might blow. Yep, there it goes. The glass pieces are melting and that's cool,.
But now I want to try this on some food. I'll get some hot dogs, and when they hit the beam they really do get hot. This might be a little well done for my taste, and I'm still hungry so let's try an egg. The egg is actually working very well. It's so reflective it doesn't burn as fast, and even my wife is interested. A little salt and pepper and it's tempting to try a bite. Ok, so I wasn't actually expecting to eat this, but it looks safe enough, and.
Even my kids are anxious to try. Surprisingly, it's pretty good. Alright, let's see what else this will do. I'll try burning a penny, and, wow, it melted. How about a stack of pennies Yep, they're nothing but liquid metal now, and I'm thinking that slag in the mixture must be what's left of the copper coating. It's only taking about 4 seconds to melt these, and melting metal is really great, but now I want to see something burst. I wonder what would happen to this egg It's spewing some kind of debris and smoking like crazy. I hear.
Some little pops and it's even forming some interesting growths. huh, Look at that. But no explosion. How about if I put a pop top on this bottle of water and let the pressure build up Yeah, that's what I'm looking for. Let's do that again. The lid is back on, and pressure is building. Awesome! Alright, the sun is setting and I've readjusted my Aframe. I'm just wondering if this would ignite gasoline. It does. Hopefully it goes without saying that this is very dangerous and you shouldn't try this at home. Well, I'm convinced there's.
An insane amount of power behind these lenses. If you'd like to see where I got this one, take a look at my tutorial on how I hacked it out of an old TV. This one boiled water in less than a minute, welded a nickel to concrete, and instantly torched any piece of wood in it's way. Well that was fun, but I'm still hungry so I'll put everything away and go get some real home cooking. That's it for now. If you liked this project, perhaps you'll like some of my others.

Solar Water Heater System
We install our gas boosted solar hot water system. The collector panels are mounted on the garage roof directly above the storage tank. The gas booster is adjustable so we can fine tune the hot water supply to maximise its efficiency. Getting the temperature right means you don't have to mix in too much cold water. Once it is up and running, the system is bled and we are ready to roll. The panels are on the north face of the house and angled at about 9 degrees. Because we are installing the storage tank inside the garage it will need to be flumed out into.
The atmosphere to comply with safety regulations. This is part of our gas boosted hot water system installation. It's called the water guardian and what it does, when you turn on the hot tap instead of allowing the cold water to run out first before the hot water arrives it recycles it back into the storage tank. Just press the button, it comes on we wait for it to stop There we are, piping hot water strait away. This device saves 16000 litres of water per annum per outlet. Worth doing.
Solar powered air conditioning
Music playing Narrator Over 50 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions you produce in your home are generated by heating, air conditioning and hot water. In other words keeping your home warm in winter, cool in summer with nice hot water on tap is emitting 2.5 to 5 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year. It also contributes a hefty amount to your electricity bill, between 50 to 60 percent. CSIRO has invented a new solar air conditioning system for Australian homes. This technology solution will reduce Australia's emissions, reduce your energy.
Bills and reduce our demand for electricity and gas. If every home in Australia installed our solar cooling technology it would be the equivalent of saving 15 mega tonnes of CO2 or taking 3.5 million cars off the road. CSIRO's solar air conditioning is an innovative three in one technology that provides hot water, cooling and heating. It uses only a fraction of the electricity of current systems and halves greenhouse gas emissions. The process begins with a typical solar hot water system. Water is heated by solar panels and stored in the hot water tank.
This solar hot water can then be used throughout the home, reducing the need for gas or electricity. A portion of the hot water is diverted into CSIRO's new solar air conditioning unit, which is divided into two compartments. The hot water enters a heat exchanger in the first compartment of the unit. Similar to a car radiator the heat exchanger uses the hot water to heat outside air that has been drawn into the first compartment through the vent. At the same time outside air is also being drawn into the second compartment into a desiccant wheel.
The desiccant wheel is the most critical part of the system. It is used to dry out the air before it goes into the house. Slowly turning the desiccant material in the wheel continuously absorbs moisture in the second compartment and then the absorbent material dries out in the first compartment. The desiccant material is dried out using the hot dry air generated by the heat exchanger. This air is then exhausted outside the home. The dry air from the desiccant wheel flows through an indirect evaporative cooler which creates a stream of cool dry air.

How to Supplement Solar Energy with a Wind Turbine
Here it is on the evening of December 22nd, the day after the Winter Solstice. And the downside of the Winter Solstice it it's a very dark and gloomy time of year. and so there's just not a lot of solar production. It's just been really dark and gloomy all day. and actually cleared up a little in the evening, but. To off set some of that winter production,.er, some of that winter need. Sorry about the wind Let me turn out of the wind My ultimate goal is to be able to run, the entire house and our cars and everything, off grid, indefinitely.
But,. I can do that in theory, 9months out of the year but darn, December, January and February are too dark and gloomy and there's just not enough sun to do it all during those times. So I'm offsetting the solar production with a wind turbine experimenting with this. I've just kind of hastily thrown up with jumper cables run it to a gridtie inverter that I've got up here. 1000 watt gridtie inverter. Which feeds directly back into the house. It works great! The only problem is it's not that windy here. Um, but right now it's pretty windy.
So it's been making a few watts today. I've seen it as high as 45 watts, which is actually kind of lousy. If this was up another 20 feet, it would probably make 10x that, so 400 watts maybe. And that's pretty significant, especially if it's running all day and night. So anyway. We can't really depend. I would ideally like to put it on my housetop. And actually put turbines up there. Maybe even 4 or 5 of them. All work together. But the neighborhood, the way it is, that's frowned upon.
VERY STRONGLY, so. Oh well. I don't want to upset the neighbors. I want to make this experiment work with still pleasing everyone else. Without anyone noticing that I'm saving energy. So. Anyway. That's my experiment in Wind and Solar. So. I'll have to come up with another way to make some power. A renewable way. I don't want to burn wood. I don't want to burn gas. We've already canceled our natural gas service and we don't buy gasoline anymore everything's electric now. So. That's my experiment. In renewable energy.
