Solar Power Breakthrough Baby!

What is solar power? We have used the sun for thousands of years. We learnt quickly about its benefits, and it is no wonder that we eventually harnessed its power to help change the world. Solar power is the concept of turning the sun’s heat or light into energy. So for example, we convert the sun’s light into electricity, where we then use it to power our needs. Solar Panels – What are they made of? A solar pa

Solar power – Do you know how valuable your roof is?

Solar power is emerging globally, and is becoming more viable to rely on. Typically, it used to be more expensive due to the leveling costs. However, it is now an extremely low-cost alternative to relying solely on mainstream utility companies. The big question is, does your roof get enough sunlight? Really, you notice how much sun is around your property, don’t you? You look to see if you can hang the washing

Solar vs Coal

The Advances Of Wind And Solar Against Coal

It may not seem like it, but clean energy is making strides in the world. In 2015, the IEA (International Energy Agency) announced that for the first time ever, renewable energy distanced itself from coal as the biggest source for power-generating capacity. In the past, the IEA has criticized the wind/solar energy projections for being too low. That seems to be changing, with the IEA changing their tune, as well. Las

Should We Solar Panel the Sahara Desert?

For decades now, the international community has been discussing the viability of establishing a massive solar farm in the Sahara Desert. But now, according to information published in a BBC World Service Inquiry Report, we have our answer. Not only is the project viable – though it will cost a multinational coalition close to $500 billion dollars to complete – but work is already underway in the Sahara. We may

How Solar Can Keep A Drone Flying All Day?

It is no secret that solar power can meet the entire world’s energy demands, but the key is to harness enough of it. The world is slowly moving towards generating enough solar power to make it a viable alternative. Costs of generating solar power have also gone down in the recent years. Solar power can be generated all day and power reserves or batteries can keep supplying the required energy through the night. With

SHOULD WE PLACE SOLAR PANELS ON THE MOON?

  Over the years, numerous research studies have been conducted into ways in which the earths energy demands can be met. The escalating world’s population is increasing the need for low-cost and sustainable sources of energy. Considering the present day climate changes in the world construction of solar power stations on the surface of the moon may turn out to be a sus-tainable way of fulfilling global ene

Can Solar Panels Replace Asphalt Roads?

Solar power is the best source of green energy. However, there is not enough space for solar farms. One suggestion is to replace concrete or asphalt roads with solar panels. The concept as simple as switching roads, parking lots, and sidewalks with industrial-strength solar panels. With this concept, New Zealand will have lots of space in city centres for solar panels that can produce carbon-free energy. The solar pa

Installing Solar Power for Tiny House NZ

Our friends from ‘Tiny House’ asked us help with installing Solar Power for one of their tiny houses. Limited roof area and the ability for the panels to withstand very high winds and vibrations (when driving and moving the house) where two of the challenges we had to tackle. We installed 4 x 285 watts solar panels, giving a total of 1140 watts per hour. Check out this video of the installation:
