Solar Panels For Homes – Plug & Save System

Plug & Save Home Solar Kit

One of the fastest and easiest ways to start reducing your home electricity bill is to use solar power. That being said, many people are not very sure how residential solar power system works.

There are many types of home solar power kit available in the market. You can see one of Sunforce solar kit link at the end of this post.

The Sunforce solar kit actually uses one of the most efficient Polycrystalline silicon Photovoltaic (PV) cells made by Sharp Corporation of Japan.

Using Solar Energy At Home

Residential solar power system is actually quite simple. The solar panels are set up on your roof. It is then connected to a few power electric gauges.

From the gauges, the power cable is connected to a charge controller. The charge controller will be used to charge up a 12 volt battery pack.

A battery unit only stores Direct Current (DC). Since most of our household electrical appliances use Alternate Current (AC), we will need a power inverter to change the DC to AC.

Finally, the power from the solar panel can be tapped from a regular power outlet from the power inverter unit.

Free Energy System

The idea of using solar energy at home is to connect as many electrical equipment to the solar power source. When you have multiple equipment using free energy from the sun, you will experience a reduction in your home monthly electricity bill.

The limiting factor is the battery unit. When you are drawing more power from solar energy, you will need to expand your battery bank to support your household needs.

The expansion of the system can be done stages by stages.

When the solar panel for your home is producing more energy than you need, you can then integrate a system where it will actually turn your home power meter backwards!

    I am definitely interested in solar panels and I believe I could build my own. The stumbling block for me is the statement made in one of the articles that to connect a solar panel to the grid the panel had to be UL certified. Does this one that you advertise below in your email get around or conform to that requirement?

    Hi Ralph,

    The plug in home solar power system offered from Amazon.com is capable of support a house with power requirement of approximately 1000 watt. It is enough to support all the lighting fixtures and most of the electrical appliances. It may not be able to handle energy hungry appliances such as refrigerator, heater, air-conditioner etc.

    The solar panel is not connected to the grid, rather it is connected to the charge controller. The charge controller is connected to the battery bank. The battery bank is connected to the ciruit box and then the power will go to the grid.

    This is a very simple explanation. If you want to get your home off the grid, I would strongly suggest to get the help of a professional solar contractor.

    I think solar and wind power are definitely worth installing on my home, but how hard is it to install one or both systems myself? How do I know if my local power company will by back any extra green energy and if they do how will I know how many KW they get? I really want to install a solar power system on the next house I build.

    Thanks
