off-grid solar kits – Why them?

How has solar PV technology advanced? off-grid solar kits – Why them? With the decreasing cost of photovoltaics (PV), going solar is becoming more cost-effective and adoption rates continue to increase for both on-grid and off-grid applications. The solar PV technology continues to advance to provide power solutions for both businesses and individuals. From a very massive utility-scale power plant providing over 2GW (2000 MW) of generating capacity to a 4 or…

Is a hybrid solar system worth it?

Hybrid-solar PV refers to combining solar photovoltaics (PV) with renewable energy technologies such as bio energy, wind turbines, geothermal etc or with conventional power technologies like diesel powered generators. Because of the intermittent nature of solar PV, developing a hybrid-solar PV helps to stabilize the grid or to produce power continuously in off-grid rural areas. Also, hybrid-PV systems have been used in micro-grids in rural areas of developing countries to…

Hybridization of solar PV and geothermal.

Both geothermal power and solar Photovoltaics (PV) are renewable sources of energy, although geothermal unlike solar and wind energy is not intermittent and hence can be used as a base load power just like other conventional sources of energy powers like large hydro or diesel power generators. Geothermal energy is a type of renewable energy which is generated within the earth and can be used directly for heating or transformed…

Solar panel portable charger

I love electronics and I love the environment. When I found out that there was a way to combine my enthusiasm for both, I was amazed! Solar panels are such an efficient source of renewable energy. The best part is that now you can actually get them as portable chargers for your gadgets. It sounds like science fiction but it’s real and it works so well! You can power up…
