PV Solar System

Posted by admin on February 16th, 2011

Photovoltaic(PV) solar panels are devices that generates electricity directly from sunlight. The power generated by these panels can be used to power  electric appliances and lights for home. This power can also be used for industrial purpose as well.

In a grid connected PV system, the excess power which is not used, can be fed back to the electricity grid.  Government is also providing solar panel rebate for new systems.

The standalone PV system is used where there is no electricity grid, there are additional components like batteries.  In that case, the excess energy is stored in the batteries and used at night time and on cloudy days.

Feed-in Tariff offers for Victorians on solar

Posted by admin on February 8th, 2011

Victoria’s premium feed-in tariff offers Victorians a guaranteed credit of at least 60 cents per kilowatt hour for excess solar electricity fed back into the grid at any time of the day or year with solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, up to five kilowatts in size. This offer is made to Victorians to encourage them to reduce their individual carbon emission, by making solar panels more economical for the average household and rewarding Victorians who return unused power to the state electricity grid.

This premium feed-in tariff offers on solar power will remain for the next 15 years to all the Victorians, for a total capacity of 100 megawatts of solar power across the state.

Customers that install small-scale renewable energy systems usually produce more energy than they consume that is ‘fed into’ the power grid. A feed-in tariff is a payment to households, community organisations and small businesses from power companies when connected to the power grid, these customers can feed this electricity back into the grid.

Solar Light Bulb

Posted by admin on February 3rd, 2011

Solar LED light bulb is meant to replace kerosene lamps as a lighting source where many people burn fossil fuels for light, which can be dangerous and expensive.

The N100 solar bulb, LED lighting is energy efficient, with a long life, is about the size of a standard incandescent bulb and has four small solar panels housed in a waterproof case. It do not requires any external power source, no maintenance for up to five years, is very easy to install and is suitable for use in remote locations away from the power grid. Five LEDs and a replaceable NiMH battery inside provide up to four hours of light when the device is fully charged. People hang it outside during the day and then turn it on at night.   Carmanah Technologies, Canadian manufacturer of these lights, has more than 250,000 installations in 110 countries and has supplied the lighting for the Khawr ‘Abd Allah Waterway in Iraq and the Bagram airfield in Afghanistan.

The LEDs are meant to last 50,000 to 100,000 hours, and the solar power panels are rated to last 10 years. The life of the N100 is basically 5 to 10 years, according to Nokero representative Tom Boyd.

The lights consists of light emitting diodes, a solar photovoltaic system, and battery all housed in a durable, waterproof polycarbonate case.  They will survive extended exposure to the environment, extreme swings in ambient temperature from -40°F to 176°F (-40°C to +80°C), shock, heavy vibration and UV degradation.
