New research shows promise for solar cells to be able to cool themselves while absorbing the sun’s powerful rays. Power4Patriots applauds this research and suggests that homeowners get off the electrical grid by installing solar panels.
Nashville, Tenn. / ACCESSWIRE / August 7th, 2014 / Researchers at Stanford University have created a new form of solar cell that cools itself, enabling it to soak in more power without burning itself out. The process involves small cone and pyramid shapes being embedded into the solar panel’s silica surface for the purpose of deflecting hot infrared wavelengths away while simultaneously allowing in the visible light that generates the most amount of energy.
Power4Patriots applauds research focused on maximizing and utilizing solar power, especially when it results in homeowners and business owners being able to take pressure off of an aging and vulnerable electrical grid and saving money in the process.
Power4Patriots is a recently updated series of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. The system includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes, as well as two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos and two instruction manuals detailing how to build a wind turbine.
The company says that installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent. On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines spend three to four times that amount.
Low Time Commitment
4Patriots Partner Allen Baler says that the time commitment to build a solar panel ranges from two to four hours, with the first one requiring more time than subsequent panels. A wind turbine requires a handful of hours to build.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy.
PatriotHeadquarters publishes articles, videos and news to help people become more self-reliant and independent from government and big business.
