Sound ludicrous? I thought so when I first heard it.  But a little research proves it true.  Free heating, air conditioning and electricity available just for the taking!  The sweet thing?  Its just outside your door! I’m talking about sunlight, of course.

Like picking juicy grapes from a vine or ripe apples from a tree, all you have to do is gather it, and put it to use in your house, garage, shop, outdoor buildings, pool, or in your garden, along your walkways…whatever.  You can heat your house in the winter and air condition it in the summer.  You can also power you lights, appliances, electronics, power tools- anything that works off electricity, all for the cheap price of free.  Heck, some people even power their cars with it, and some have even flown airplanes. Now, you can be your own utility company and toss those power company bills in the garbage!

Used to be such talk was ludicrous. Today it is a reality.  If you want to undo the shackles of oil, gas and electrical power companies off your pocketbook, good ‘ole clean, ever bountiful, never ending, renewed every morning sunshine is the way to go.

Sunlight will heat as well as supply all your electrical needs! So, the question is, “How can I transform this common commodity we all know as “light” into a furnace for heating my home in the winter and air conditioning to cool it in the summer?  How can I turn that same “light” into electricity to supply the power needs of my house?  And any other thing that runs on electricity?  Some very innovative folks have figured it out.   Now there are hundreds, even thousands of good relatively cheap “plug and play” products that do the job for you.  And, if you’d rather, there are “do it yourself” building instructions that guide you step by step how to harvest the sunlight, turn it into heat and air conditioning, as well as electricity, and hitch it to your house and/or whatever gadgets you want to run-  all for free.

If you are building a new house you can, with just about the same cost of installing an oil or gas fired furnace or heat pump, now install solar generated heat and air conditioning equipment, and never have to pay or worry about another oil or gas bill again.  Also, you can build or buy solar panels that convert sunlight into electricity to use in any way you see fit, cutting down electric company bills dramatically, or even eliminating them altogether.  Utilizing “net metering” you can even collect a check from the power company each month for the excess electricity you put back onto the power grid!  Not only that, but Uncle Sam with State and municipalities tax credits and rebates will pay up to 50% of the cost of installation!Is that a good deal or what?

Off-Grid Electrical System

Wed Jun 1 , 2016
Solar controllers are rated in amps and volts.  Thus, the solar controller must have the capability to accommodate the current or amperage and volts emitted from the solar panel.  Batteries can be overcharged and ruined.  Excessive discharge can also damage the battery.  The controller is set between the electrical solar panel and the storage batteries for protection from overcharging or undercharging of the batteries.  The purpose of the controller is to match the current (amperage) and voltage (force of the current) of the solar panel with the charging capacity of the batteries.  The battery fully charged the controller cuts off the current from the solar panels.  The best controllers also have a low voltage cut off which prevents the battery from being drained of electricity below the point of no recovery. Batteries Electrical solar storage batteries are different than automobile batteries.  They are built to endure the type of charging and discharging associated with solar electricity collecting.  There are basically three kinds of batteries for solar electricity storage: flood lead-acid; sealed absorbent glass mat; and gel-cell.  The flood lead-acid batteries do not cost as much, but require special maintenance, such as having to add distilled water to replenish water losses during charges.  Sealed absorbent glass mat batteries are the most used.  They do not require special maintenance, are kept at full charge, and are especially designed to function in a bank in tandem with other batteries. Gel-celled batteries do not freeze. They are better to use where excessive cold predominates. The number of batteries needed depends on the electrical load expected to be sustained and for how long.  For an off-grid system, the typical aim is to store an ample supply of electricity for continuous day and night time use, as well as enough storage for one to three cloudy […]
