Free Your Home Through Off Grid Solar Panels

Posted by SEPCO on 2/26/13 9:37 AM

There are many options when it comes to setting up an off-grid energy source. Solar panels, which draw energy from the sun, are now the most popular among such options, owing to its relative simplicity and consistency. Unlike windmills that depend on the wind, the energy from the sun is constant. Once the solar panel system is set up, it operates virtually hands free.

The Life and Times of Solar Power

Posted by SEPCO on 2/7/13 9:30 AM

I’ll bet when you think of electric solar panels you think that this is a new technology, well it isn’t. Solar panels have been used and developed in the 1700’s in France. They took a while to catch on to the masses and even now they are slow to grasp the general public because of the expense of the equipment and the maintenance.

In 1954 we figured out how to harness energy using silicon-based solar cells in California, the sunniest of all places in the US. Which is the home of electric solar panels; this idea has been discovered and rediscovered many times. The issue is the expense of the equipment, weather and accessibility along with the monopoly of the electric companies.

Electric solar panels have been used in California, Texas and the plains states for many, many important things that have proven they would be great for the economy. So we must convince the Governments on a federal and state level to pass legislation to support solar energy.
