Solar Panels For Sale: Your Options

There are many ways to go about getting your house on solar. The cheapest is of course to build your own solar panels and install them on your own home. This is by far the most labor intensive and requires the most time, but it is also the way to save the most money. There are programs like Earth 4 Energy that give you all of the details on how to build your own solar panels for a fraction of the cost.

The next option for cheap solar panels for sale is to purchase a solar panel kit and install it yourself. This still takes a bit of know how, but since the kit is basically complete, you don’t have to figure out what to purchase. A lot of the kits contain all the parts you need and you just need to find the best place to put them and then wire them into your home. You can find kits like this solar kit and connect them together to get even more power.

The last way, and easiest, though most expensive is to have a solar panel company install the solar panels for you. It will definitely be the most expensive, but for those who don’t have the time  or ability to install your own it is the way to go. You can try to lower the costs on this by finding out what types of programs the local government are offering. Their may be tax breaks, grants, subsidies, etc that will all bring down the final cost.

Regardless of your choice, there are a lot of solar panels for sale and the prices are getting pretty low. With the cost of energy prices right now, solar panels are a great option. Depending on the amount of sunlight available around your home and your power consumption, you may even be able to make money on your solar panels.

 

 

Cheaper Solar Cells may make for cheap solar panels

A new type of solar cell that gets it’s design from 20 years ago may be making it’s way into the market soon. The Gratzel cell is a solar cell that uses a conductive liquid instead of silicone. 20 years ago they couldn’t get the cell to work long term because the liquid would eat through the container holding it. It took a bit of thinking outside of the box, but they are now able to make this kind of cell work.

The downside, it is only about half as efficient as silicone solar panels. Why then could this solar panel prove to be important? Because solar panels using this new type of solar cell could be made cheaper. As we all know, silicone is in big demand and in limited supply. This makes it expensive. Solar panels made of material that doesn’t contain silicone will have an advantage of price and supply (assuming they are more common and aren’t more expensive than silicone). 

At this point they are still in the testing phase, but have been successful. They are now ready to start making larger solar cells.

Solar Panels For Sale: Sunforce Kit


There are a lot of people who say they would love to buy solar panels, but can’t afford them or just aren’t sure that it is a good investment. These are both valid reasons to keep on waiting. The number of solar panels for sale have increased greatly making it even more difficult (though less expensive) to choose the right solar panels. So if you are interested, but not 100% sure, then how about testing some cheap solar panels?

There are a number of kits on the market that include everything and are basically a DIY or premade kit. They can be setup and taken down quickly, and don’t take up too much space. These kits won’t provide power for your entire home, but they will give you enough to power a few appliances. You could actually combine several to get more power, but in that case there will be better options that are more cost effective.

Installing one of these kits is pretty simple and will help you learn just how well solar panels will work at your home. A couple of these can even be installed on RVs.

After you have installed the solar panels and decided that you would like to go bigger (completely get rid of your energy bill), then the next step is to check out your government and find out what kind of options you have. Getting them to pay for a large part of the bill will make the transition to solar power much easier.

The great way about setting up these solar panels is that even if you later go to a much larger service these won’t go to waste. You can set them up with your system for a little extra power or you can use them to power a seperate building or RV.

Solar Panels For Sale: Long Term Investment

Purchasing a new house is a long term investment. At least, it is in most cases. You have to put down a large sum of money and then you slowly make it back as you save on rent and as the price of your home goes up. This is also the same case for solar panels. You have to put down a large sum of money to purchase and install the solar panels, and then over time you make that money back by not having to pay an electric bill. This article will cover a few simple tips on how to reduce the initial purchase and your payback time.

Do your research

This actually covers two different aspects. The first is knowing what kind of solar panel is best for your home. There are a lot of solar panels for sale at a number of prices. Cheapest doesn’t always mean the best. Look at wattage per square foot. This will give you a comparable value. In addition, find out how many panels you will need. There is no reason to pay extra unless you are planning to sell energy back to the power company. Upgrading a few appliances might save you some money on unneeded solar panels.

Check your local government. They will have a lot of helpful information, and you may also be able to apply for rebates and or loans that will help lower the price and make obtaining solar panels easier. You can find a lot of info here. This solar panel guide might also help.

Shop around. Don’t go with the first company you contact. Solar panels are getting more popular and there are now more companies installing them. Check with all the companies in your area.

What can you do yourself

With a little bit of research and work, you might be able to to do all or at least some of the work yourself. Since the cost of solar panels has gone down, installation is now one of the biggest costs. Doing the work yourself can substantially lower this.

Solar panels aren’t ideal for everyone, but for those that do get sun, they can be a great alternative to an energy bill.

Worlds Largest Solar Farm Switches to Solar Panels

I talk a lot about the cost of solar panels for sale dropping. In the last couple of years the prices have been dropping consistently over the range of solar panels. Since the solar power companies are also claiming lower returns it is hard to know how long this will last.

However, proof that solar panels are getting cheaper and cheaper is the recent news that Solar Millenium AG, the largest farm, will be switching from thermal solar to solar photovoltaic panels. The company will be installing the 500MW farm in California.

So what does this mean for you? Well, that depends on who you are. But if you are the person who wants to install solar panels on your home, cabin, or RV, but have felt it’s too expensive, this might be the time it finally makes financial sense. More and more companies are making solar panels and the number of cheap solar panels are increasing daily.  In addition, governments are getting serious about green power and offer all kinds of loans,  grants, refunds, and tax cuts. The city I live in has  also recently installed a large solar field that will be generating a substantial percent of power for the city. I recommend you find out what kind of program your government is offering.

In addition, remember that you can also save additional money by installing solar panels yourself, and even by assembling them. There are a lot of options to get solar panels on your house. You just have to do a little bit of research to find out which one is best for you.

 

Cheap Solar Panels For Sale

Solar panels have been around for a very long time. They were on my calculator as a kid, and they were around a long time before that. However, it is only in the last few years that they have really started to make progress.

Due to the raising gas prices and energy prices, solar panels are becoming a much more realistic and better option. People who are tired of paying raising electrical bills and paying surcharges for no particular reason are fighting back and purchasing solar panels. since more people want solar panels on their homes, homes that already have solar panels installed are selling with large premiums. Great news for anyone who wants to put solar panels on their home.

However, even with the recent increase solar panel demand and the money that companies are putting into research, there really aren’t any cheap solar panels for sale.  Choosing the right time to purchase and doing your research can save you a lot of money, but you will still have to put out quite a bit of money to get your solar panels. There are however two ways that you can get solar panels cheap.

One is to check your local and national government websites to see what rebates are being offered. As more and more countries are pushing for clean energy, governments are offering a lot of rebates. The amount will vary by location, but in many cases they are quite substantial. With rebates and some good negotiations you might be able to get your house equipped with solar panels for almost nothing.

You can find the US Energy website here.

The other method is for the DIY. With a bit of work you can assemble and install solar panels yourself for a fraction of the cost. This method  will require a bit more work (purchasing parts, assembling them, installing them, and routing the system into your house), but can allow you to be running on solar panel electricity for a much smaller investment.

However, you don’t have to guess through the process. There is a program that will take you through the process for step by step with videos and detailed instructions.

Solar panels and green energy have made great progress in the last few days. The NSW Energy Minister Chris Hartcher recently said that new solar panels will be able to connect them to the power grid and that utility companies will be required to pay for customers for the extra power their solar panels make. This has actually been the standard in some areas, however some utility companies where refusing to allow customers to connect their solar panels to the grid.

Small Solar Panels

When thinking about solar panels for your home, a lot of people tend to think about the big ones that can be mounted onto your roof. Of course, there are a lot of us, who don’t have either the funds (though the solar panels for sale have gotten much cheaper) or we may not have the space. Because of this a lot of people tend to mark solar panels off as a viable option.

However, there are also a number of small solar panels for sale. In fact, very small solar panels have been around for a very long time. I’m sure that you have all had a solar powered calculator. If you live in an apartment or a rented house, you may not have the ability to have solar panels installed on your house, but you can use small solar panels to provide some power.

As mentioned above, for those who rent, having solar panels installed on the house doesn’t make a lot of sense. Not only will you have to have them removed when you leave (if the owner even let’s you install them), but you also have to worry about all the wiring on a house which isn’t even yours. It can make things expensive and complicated. Luckily, as solar panels have gotten cheaper, so have the number of options increased.

You can now purchase small solar panels which can be mounted on windows, decks, or a mounting device of your choosing, and come complete with their own converters and batteries. This works perfectly to provide a little extra electricity for your appliances as well as reduce your monthly energy bill. Small solar panels also don’t take much to put up, and since they aren’t wired or permanently attached to the house you can take them with you.

You can also create your own solar panels for a fraction of the cost. If you want to go green now, and save a lot of money then this is for you. You can find out more here.

 

 

Japan to require solar panels on all new buildings by 2030

For a lot of people this sounds like a big push in the right direction. Imagine if every building had solar panels powering it. The amount of power produced by gas or nuclear would drop dramatically. But, I think this is more of a plan to get attention away from the recent nuclear disaster than it is an effort to go green.


First, 2030 is almost 20 years from now. And that doesn’t mean that all buildings will be required to have solar panels by then. Only that all new buildings will be required to install them. So there is really no immediate push for companies are building owners to install solar panels. They also fail to mention that by the year 2030, the amount of expansion in Japan (unless drastic measures are taken) will be close to zero. You don’t build a lot of new buildings when your population is continually shrinking.

Now if Japan was serious about using solar panels, they would have made this immediate so that all the new houses that will be built in the areas hit by the tsunami would require solar panels. Rather than just rebuilding those communities they could make them clean and green and independent.

Let’s face it, the solar panels for sale have gotten cheaper and will continue to do so. Especially when the majority of buildings in Japan are built by corporations and large companies. It’s time we start demanding more from them. Cheap solar panels can be picked up pretty easy these days, and the more that are purchased the more that will be made.

So what are your feelings on the subject? Is it a good start or is it too little too late?
