In the future, vast solar power satellites may beam energy to the Earth from space. This is the first episode in my series “Resources from Space”. You can watch the other videos here: “Asteroid Mining”: “Mining the Moon”: “Beyond Sustainability”: “The Making of Resources from Space “: You can read more about resources from space,… Continue reading Space-Based Solar Power
Solar is not a new energy technology, but its currently undergoing a revolution that could impact the future of energy. With dramatic progress in cost reduction whilst maintaining continal climb in efficiency, solar power is being adopted across the world at an astonishing rate. But how far can photovoltaics take us? How cheap can it… Continue reading Is Solar Power The Future Of Energy?
Try my solar panel cost calculator: The specific system I mentioned in the video might or might not be available in your area, and prices do vary, so it’s best to get multiple quotes to get a feel for costs. Other tools mentioned in the video: – Solar ROI calculator: pvcalc Installing solar panels seems… Continue reading Solar Panels UK: Are they worth it?
See options of mono and poly solar panels at altE’s website: . We often get asked by customers what’s the difference between monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels. Here’s a surprising comparison of the differences (hint: not as significant as you might think).
