How to Install Off-Grid Solar LED Lighting in Your Ice Fishing Shack; A Step-by-Step Guide

Solar Panels: www.futureelectronics.com Ice fishing is a very popular winter sport in Canada and many other countries worldwide. A time will come when solar powered LED lighting and solar powered heating will be the standard for ice fishing tools and equipment. Watch this video to learn about hooking up a solar powered LED lighting system complete with instructions for wiring solar panels, batteries, charge controller, LED driver and the LED module. Alternative energy in the form of electricity from solar panels is a green power that can be very useful in providing off-grid solar lighting in many situations like camping. Solar powered LED lighting and solar powered heating will soon be part of all kinds of camping gear. Going off-grid is easier – and cheaper – than you might think! The following is a list of parts needed for this project: Solar Panel www.futureelectronics.com Charge Controller: www.futureelectronics.com Crimping Tool: www.futureelectronics.com PV Wire www.futureelectronics.com

Solar Revolution: The Economic Transformation of the Global Energy Industry


In Solar Revolution, fund manager and former corporate buyout specialist Travis Bradford argues–on the basis of standard business and economic forecasting models–that over the next two decades solar energy will increasingly become the best and cheapest choice for most electricity and energy applications. Solar Revolution outlines the path by which the transition to solar technology and sustainable energy practices will occur.Developments in the photovoltaic (PV) industry over the last ten years have made direct electricity generation from PV cells a cost-effective and feasible energy solution, despite the common view that PV technology appeals only to a premium niche market. Bradford shows that PV electricity today has become the choice of hundreds of thousands of mainstream homeowners and businesses in many markets worldwide, including Japan, Germany, and the American Southwest.Solar energy will eventually be the cheapest source of energy in nearly all markets and locations because PV can bypass the aging and fragile electricity grid and deliver its power directly to the end user, fundamentally changing the underlying economics of energy. As the scale of PV production increases and costs continue to decline at historic rates, demand for PV electricity will outpace supply of systems for years to come.Ultimately, the shift from fossil fuels to solar energy will take place not because solar energy is better for the environment or energy security, or because of future government subsidies or as yet undeveloped technology. The solar revolution is already occurring through decisions made by self-interested energy users. The shift to solar energy is inevitable and will be as transformative as the last century’s revolutions in information and communication technologies.

How to Build a Solar Panel Power System for less than $150.00 (The Debt Killer)


The wonderful world of Photovoltaic’s, otherwise known as solar power, doesn’t have to be restricted to the rich. You can build a simple solar power set-up that can run all the lights in your home, a TV, stereo, computer, or similar electrical device. All you need is 1 solar panel, 1 battery, 110 volt inverter and a set of car jumper cables. All for no more than a Friday night out on the town ($130).

You can now run your laptop, Blackberry, Ipod, Iphone or any other electronic, wherever you are. Take them camping or to the beach, you’ll never be far from a plug again.

This is a simple system to run some basic electronics that anyone can put together.
