How Solar DC System Works with DC Lights, Fan, Panel, TV and Battery

This video tells you how a Solar DC System works and what are the benefits of using this system in your house. This path breaking solar technology makes the system very efficient as there is no conversion of DC to AC. Solar electricity is generated in DC which goes to power DC fans, lights and TV. There is a battery for storage as well.

Are you trying to figure out how much power you’ll need from an off-grid solar power system? This video shows you how to calculate your energy needs to figure out exactly how many watts you need from your panels, what size of inverter and battery you should buy.

What can I power with a 100W solar panel?



Views:972169|Rating:4.52|View Time:9:5Minutes|Likes:13615|Dislikes:1432
In this video, we explore how to determine how much power a 100W solar panel will generate, what size battery and charge controller you need to store the power, and some ideas of what you can power with it and for how long. We also show you how to do the calculations for yourself to figure out what you could do with off grid solar. Note that at minute 7, we included a deration for the inverter losses. Since we are talking about what size battery is needed to put power in, not taking power out, we don’t need to do that step. The battery can be 5% smaller than we calculated.

It finally happened! We started out solar journey. This isn’t how we saw it happening, but we’re very glad it did. Already we’re feeling the benefits of offsetting out generator use. Not just the fuel and cost savings, but the convenience too.

Solar has been on our radar for some time and we recently ran into Go Power at an RV convention. We discussed with them our situation, concerns and frustrations with solar. During the conversation portable solar came up as an option for getting started today on a budget and with the intent to only offset our generator use. This approach had escaped us because we were looking so far forward. We were trying to size the “now-and-later” solar setup, but it’s just hard to do, especially on a budget.

In the end we made the leap, picked up a portable array and are very happy that our generator use had declined to nill. Sure it’s summer so there’s lots of sun available. Perhaps by winter we’ll have a better feel for solar, our power needs and be more capable of sizing a system to fit our future needs.

We wanted to share this story with you because we were overcomplicating solar and it was a huge relief to discover that it doesn’t have to be. Starting small can make sense especially if you’re boondocking, looking for an array to power your campsite or are heading off grid. Had we known this was an option, or at least not overlooked it, when we arrived it would have been in our toolbox for certain.

If you need portable solar or just plain simple solar, give these portable arrays a look or even a try and see if they’ll meet your power needs for today. It’s a great way to get started!

For a full overview of what we’ve been up to, please visit our blog post above. Lots of great stuff and background that we couldn’t possibly share in a roundup YouTube video!

Mono vs Poly vs Flexible Solar Panel + Series vs Parallel Wiring



Views:82276|Rating:4.92|View Time:17:33Minutes|Likes:3485|Dislikes:54
When it comes to choosing a solar panel that will work best for your needs, there are lots of variables that you need to consider: monocrystalline vs polycrystalline, hard panels vs flexible panels, wiring the solar panels in series vs parallel or a combination of the two. This video will help bring clarity to these decisions you will need to make.
