  2. I have really really like experiencing your own you tube video regarding
    The roof. I recently started in roofing plus found your remarks to be
    extremely helpful. I look forward to examining more of your own video
    footages. Can I inquire how long you have happened to be in this kind of

  4. @MstrKey from my understanding,this system is grid tied so it back feeds
    the power into the grid. there are no batteries with this system as long as
    it is grid tied.

  5. You’re really doing a disservice to solar when you claim it’s not NET
    energy. It’s well understood by anyone investing in solar that the ‘free’
    electricity only comes *after* the system has generated more than the
    system cost. The cost of electric power is going to continue to climb. The
    higher it goes, the faster the system earns it’s worth.

  6. this is real cool but how do i get the product there is no contact

  7. do these use heavy metals like other thin films? if so they might not be
    much better than nuclear. note, i am a ecologically sustainable energy

  8. i look really light weight, easy to set up and pull down; perfect for us in
    hurricane prone areas.

  10. Could something like this be put on a car to charge up batteries for
    electric conversion?

  11. HA HA HA didn’t have to just switched hands. Your right the info is there
    but you really have to dig to find it. Coast of this system is better BUT
    it still takes too long to pay for itself. About 8 to 10 years. I am
    looking for something that will pay for itself in Less, than 4 years.
    Thanks for the heads up though. And you have a great weekend.

  14. that’s easy to say, but no 1 single watt of net energy has been produced by
    a PV panel EVER. It is possible that you are not putting in account all the

  15. @coolflatroof $8-12 per W for this? Ouch.

  16. fulcrum2004, PV panel technology passed break-even a while ago now. Get
    with the times eh.

  18. Great job!

  19. Storing power only makes sense if you’re completely off grid. For urban
    applications, you should feed the grid instead.

  21. not a problem at all, in fact you get better discounts paying cash upfront.
    But you should look also manteinance and account for subsidies involved to
    get a complet picture

  22. i would not really take this up as an option

    By gmaiersx on Mar 17, 2014

  23. Yeah, yeah. I’ve read that article, and all the stuff on the Delaware U.
    site. It’s an impressive achievement. Todays panels can be anywhere from
    5%-25% efficient, but those figures a irrelevant. The bottom line is what
    the panel *produces*. A single 1 sq/m panel theoretically receives 1kW of
    energy, but may only deliver 170W, but that’s *STILL* 170W of usable power.

  24. Winter days are shorter and the angle of the sun is low. Both contribute to
    loss. Yet at todays prices (assuming $.12/kW), 4kW/h is more like $.50
    worth of power *AND* it’s enough to supply the needs of the video’s maker.
    It only stands to reason that with longer days and a proper angle that it
    could generate even more.

  25. Here is a way that a residential house could effectively store solar energy
    during the five hours of good sunshine, to last for the full twenty-four
    hours. Use a hydraulic elevator system lifting a very heavy weight, where
    the energy is stored by the gravity of the weight. When the sun goes
    down,or when more power is needed during the five hours of good sunshine,
    the very heavy weight movement is reversed and the hydraulics is used to
    generate power.

  26. maybe some numbers are out of date, but thermodynamics and energy
    fundamentals don’t. It would be pretty difficult to beat the almost 9000
    Wh/lt that gasoline has.
