This is to give a brief overview of the benefits of switching to a solar power system for your home. Some people are uncertain of whether or not they should make this move, and whether it will be viable and worthwhile for them. There is certainly an investment of time or money or both involved, […]
What are thin film solar panels, and what could possibly be so exciting about them? Thin film solar panels operate in the same manner that regular solar panels do, the only difference being that they are a lot thinner and require far less materials and energy for construction. This might not sound extremely spectacular, but […]
As the world advances, new technologies arise – or, in some cases, older technologies are exhumed and improved upon. Although most people are under the impression that the field of photovoltaics is a new subject, based on recent invention, this is not actually the case. But first of all lets take a look at what […]
In order to benefit from the use of solar energy, there are a few facts you should know. Knowing these facts can assist you to make sound decisions, when looking at the use of solar power as a clean energy source for your home, RV, or whatever the case may be.
A “solar cell” is a device which changes sunlight into electricity.

With the recent introduction of plug-n-play solar chargers into the market, solar power is within the reach of just about anyone. You no longer have to be a technician or a tech savvy “do-it-yourself-er,” to be able to harness solar energy. What exactly is a plug-n-play solar charger? In its simplicity, it’s usually a solar […]
While solar battery chargers have existed for decades, it is only in the past few years that their popularity seriously increased. In part, this is because of advancements in technology. It is also a result of our increased awareness of our need to shift to cleaner energy sources. Advancements in technology have reduced the sizes […]
