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
greenpowerscience.com This is a good option for anyone wanting to experiment with DIY solar panels but do not want to use hot solder. This works good if you have a good clean connection and you are willing to sacrifice about 5% of the solar cells over all watt output. You can actually make smaller panels this way increasing the wattage per square meter and saving on glass dimensions. This option works perfectly for joining together broken cells and making artistic designs with solar scraps that really produce power. This option is also perfect for solar model builders as this makes the panel one semi-rigid piece.

Designing and installing solar panel systems is a trend that continues to grow. With ‘green collar’ jobs on the rise and homeowners looking for earth-friendly ways to stretch their dollars and lesson their carbon imprint, understanding photovoltaic design and installation is on the rise.
Photovoltaic Design & Installation For Dummies gives you a comprehensive overview of the history, physics, design, installation, and operation of home-scale solar-panel systems. You’ll also get an introduction to the foundational mathematic and electrical concepts you need to understand and work with photovoltaic systems.
Covers all aspects of home-scale solar-power systems
Viable resource for professionals, students, and technical laymen
Can be used to study for the NABCEP exam
Whether you’re a building professional looking to expand your business and skills to meet the growing demand for solar power installation or are seeking a career in this rapidly expanding field, Photovoltaic Design & Installation For Dummies has you covered!
Robert Llewellyn visits an energy efficient house in Berlin. LIKE Fully Charged on Facebook @ fb.me Fully Charged Podcast on iTunes @ bit.ly Robert is back in Berlin, where he speaks to Jörg Welke who lives in a house which produces 16000kWh of energy a year, when it only uses 4000-5000kWh. With it’s great insulation, solar panels, and a 40kWh storage battery, it is truly energy efficient. In 2010, the UK could produce on a sunny midsummer day, 74000kW of energy from solar electricity. Compare this to Germany who under the same conditions producer 17000000kW of energy. For more info about the home visit: www.bmvbs.de ABOUT FULLY CHARGED: Fully Charged is an online show hosted by Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf, Scrapheap Challenge, Carpool), sponsored by British Gas: Looking After Your World. During this series, Robert will discuss why we need to change how we think about energy consumption now. He will be taking a look at the newest electric cars available on the market [Volvo, Ford, Peugeot, Renault & Nissan] and also different forms of renewable energy [Wind and Solar].
Big Cat Rescue recently installed a solar power system thanks to the generous support of The Body Shop Foundation, C1 Bank, TECO-Tampa Electrical and Solar Energy Management. We’re so happy that the sanctuary was given the opportunity to help save the planet by utilizing green energy sources and we hope to expand in the future!
