Good afternoon, good evening or good morning where ever you are today. My name is Rob Greenfield and today I am going to talk to you a little bit about.
The solar panels i use at my off the grid in the city tiny house life. Today I am actually going to be reviewing an awesome solar panel. It is the Apollo 36.
And the battery pack. So this is it and I got this about 6 months ago and I have to say I am thoroughly thoroughly impressed with it. I don’t have a single.
Negative thing to say about it and only positive things. So what I do here just to give you a bit of an idea. I have two solar panels. This is one of them and.
I live off the grid here in San Diego, so not connected to the electrical power supply. However I live a very simple life and I don’t have much electrical needs. I have got my.
Laptop my little macbook air. I’ve got my headlamp. I’ve got my bike light. I’ve got my rear bikelight. And then I’ve got a 3 watt LED light bulb inside the house.
And i think that is all that i use for electricity here so pretty much a life void of electricty for the most part. But this right here really, really.
Gets the job done. it’s extremely dependable and I can rely on it to give me all of the electricity I need. This 36 watt panel charges this power bank and you.
Number of energy independent villages increase
Nowadays its not difficult to find households using solar panels to harness the power of the sun for green energy. How about an entire village that’s self sufficient and eco friendly that way? Kim Mokyeon takes us to some of those energy independent towns. Some 43 households live in this energy independent town. There are solar energy facilities installed on the roof of every house.
Residents can save a lot of money as they use the energy created through these facilities at a cheaper price, and can even use the energy left the following month. ed: Devin Before we installed it, we paid about 84 U.S. dollars a month. But now we pay less than 20, so we can save about 60 dollars a month. On top of the community hall, there is a larger Photovoltaic Power Generation System installed,.
Which can create up to 3,000 kilowatts per hour. The town sells the energy obtained to the Korea Electric Power Corporation in return for more than 200 U.S. dollars which they use for the development of the village. It’s still difficult for residents to pay for the entire costs of the renewable energy facilities, so currently the respective provinces are paying for 90 percent of the expenses. The government is supporting the installation of such renewable energy facilities as it.
Can help villages become energy independent and can also help in saving the environment. As of today, there are 10 towns that call themselves energy independent in the Gyeonggido province. The government plans to increase the number of these energy independent towns to 100 by 2030. Kim Mokyeon, Arirang News.
