Santa Cruz, CA (PressExposure) March 30, 2009 -- Most of the people canât live nowadays without television and nowadays people are paying around $60 to $70 per month for the electricity bills. This money is around 3 to 5 percentage of their total income. Mostly electricity is produced in the thermal power plants. The resources for these thermal power plants are in a great danger because after 30 to 40 years these resources will be over. We have think about the alternative ways like wind power, solar power by now itself says Michael Kuyt of www.earthlovesit.com [http://www.earthlovesit.com]
He added that, âAccording to a recent survey the renewable energy contribute to around 12% of the total electricity produced in the advanced countries like America. Mainly the biomass power and hydro energy is taking a great part in this renewable energy sources with each having a 40 % contribution. The solar power and the wind power contribution is very much low when compared to other resources which is merely around 2 to 3 percentage. Why this solar power contribution is this much reduced, because of the initial installation cost of the solar panels [http://www.earthlovesit.com] only. Because this initial installation cost around $20000 which is a big amount of money nowadays. So is there any way to reduce this installation cost? The internet is there for you guys who are thinking to get a solar power station of their own for just $200. In these cases you have to build your own solar panels in your home to generate electricity and these websites are providing you step by step information for doing this in your homeâ.
Speaking on the move, Michael Kuyt said âBefore building your own solar power [http://www.earthlovesit.com] systems you have know about what are solar panels, solar cells. Solar panels is of two types one is photovoltaic modules which converts direct sunlight to electricity and the other one thermal collectors in which the sunlight will heat some liquids like water or oil, then from the heat energy obtained from the liquids is converted into electrical energy. Solar panels contain several individual solar cells [http://www.earthlovesit.com]. These solar cells are similar to that of a large semiconductor and utilize a large-area p-n junction diode. When the sunlight falls on these solar cells, the p-n junction diodes convert the energy from sunlight into electrical energy. The energy generated from photons which strikes the surface of the solar panel allows electrons to be thrown out of their orbits and released, and electric fields in the solar cells [http://www.earthlovesit.com] pull these free electrons in a directional current, from which metal contacts in the solar cell can generate electricity. The more no of solar cells [http://www.earthlovesit.com] in a solar panel the more total electrical output the solar panel will produceâ.
It is a website providing the people a guide to build their own solar or wind power stations at the back of their home for a low cost of $49.97 . In that guide you will get the step by step video tutorial to build your power station within a cost limit of $200.
