Cars that operate on solar power can cut down on carbon emissions a lot, but this system is not perfect yet. Having said that, small power machines that run on solar energy are available. Solar powered generators can be purchased, and are a great source of energy in emergencies.
The solar eclipse put my bro in the hospital, so he said. Turned out it was just a case of the dreaded kidney stones. LOL But how about that AMAZING eclipse!
Panels have to face the sun to draw power. You get the energy from the sun, so it's important for the panels to be located in an area where they can get all the solar energy possible.
Decide whether you want to be on or off the power grid. Many people look forward to getting "off the grid" when they switch to solar power, however this may not be the best choice. Staying on your power grid means that when you have poor sunlight conditions you have the ability to purchase additional power when you need it. As a bonus, when you produce more power than you use, you can sell the excess back to the utilities.
