What is Solar Energy?

This video gives a simple but compelling introduction to solar energy. Did you know that all of the energy we use comes from the sun? You probably know that’s true for solar panels, but the sun is also the ultimate energy source generated by wind, water, and fossil fuels. Watch this video to learn more about renewable sources of energy and more! #fossil #fossilfuel #scicomm #solarenergy #energy

How do grid-tied solar systems work?

Grid-tied solar systems - also known as on-grid solar - are the most popular kind of solar panel system in America. Here's how they work for a typical home. The beauty of a grid-tied solar system is that it creates a two-way relationship between your home and the grid. In addition to importing power from the grid (as you already do), you can also export power to it. This means that during the day - when your solar panels are producing plenty of surplus power - you can actually export (i.e. sell) power to the grid. Your power exports earn you bill credits from the utility, dramatically reducing your power bill. The savings can be huge: you could see electricity usage charges of $0 for the year. Watch the video to see how a grid-tied solar system operates over the course of a day.

Monocrystalline Vs. Polycrystalline solar panels: A Clear and Simple Comparison

Renewable Energy Engineer Jesse Gorter is specialized in Off Grid Solar Energy Systems, and he explains in a simple & clear way what the differences are between Mono- and Polycrystalline panels. Get your facts straight and know which panels to buy.

A brief explanation of the differences between Mono crystalline and Poly crystalline Solar PV Panels in four steps: 1. STRUCTURAL DIFFERENCE: What is the physical difference between the two types, and how are their solar cells made 2. ENERGY EFFICIENCY: What are the efficiencies for both types of solar panels, and how do cell efficiencies differ from module efficiencies 3. LOW IRRADIANCE: which type of panel performs better under low irradiance conditions, and what causes this 4. CONCLUSION & TIP: A recommendation of what to look out for while shopping for panels, and a specific tip regarding Mono Crystalline modules. For personal advice from Jesse, go to:
