Kyocera Photovoltaic Panels using gasoline or sunlight as power inputs. With fossil fuels we get noise, pollution and the way things were done. With PVs, we get silence, freedom and the way things are going to be. Let the future into your life & use the Sun's power. Don't be tempted to buy the least expensive system components. Your home power system should last for at least 10 years. System components designed with cost as their primary criteria are not going to last. Stick with equipment...

Info

Refrigerator Lights Inverter Radio Appliances Spring Summer Fall C Winter All four panels regularly produce more than their rated capacity. The power from the PV panels is brought through a wiring center (from Steve Willey of Backwoods Solar Electric Systems, 8530-HP Rapid Lightning Creek Rd., Sandpoint, ID 83864, 208 263-4290) which provides a blocking diode and a charge regulator. The power then flows into two 6 Volt L-16 Trojan batteries (rated 350 Ampere-hours) wired in series to produce a...

Radio Links Provide Phones Far From Telephone Lines Home Power readers have in common more than just the need to generate their electricity. Many are also miles away from the public telephone service, and are denied hardline communication with the outside world. Recent advances in electronics, and new laws freeing more of the radio spectrum for personal and business communication, are rapidly changing the way people can use radio equipment to provide rural telephone service. In the past, as an...

And 120 Ampere Photovoltaic Charge Controllers

The CC-60 is a series Pulse Width Modulated charge controller providing complete and failsafe battery recharging. State-of-the-Art MOSFET technology gives the fullest possible charge by trickle charging the batteries once they reach float voltage. This is not possible with unreliable relay series Standard features include temperature compensation, 12 24 Volt selectable, 16 easy to select S.O.C. voltages, remote voltage sensing and low voltage warning. The CC-60 and CC-120 will interface with...

Things that Work

Home Power tests Backwoods Solar Electric's Battery Charge Controller This battery charge controller operates in two modes. As series resistance to control incoming energy from any DC source. And as a shunt regulator which connects loads to the batteries in order to control system voltage. Steve Willey's battery controller operates either or both ways. The strong points of Backwoods Solar's controller are versatility and quality. Shipping Container & Documentation The unit arrived in fine...

How To Install A Solar Water Heater

Cook (ISBN 0-9619932-0-0) published by Save On Solar, 6905 White Rabbit Rd., Battle Creek, MI 49017. Details on closed loop anti-freeze systems, 89 pages. What is a free lunch In physical space time, the free lunch is defined as a system which creates more energy than it consumes. Despite the protestations of modern science, this goal is attainable. In fact, there are at least two ways to do it. One way is through an inorganic transformation system, using self-regenerative feed back...
