According to a recent Study, 80 percent of more than a million American respondents believe all new home building from now on should incorporate some kind of solar power systems. Once informed of the greater resale value that homes with solar systems can have, 2/3 of those surveyed said they would expect to pay more money for this house, a would do so voluntarily; what is more, 1/2 of those surveyed said they would even be prepared to pay a 10percent premium on for houses with solar energy systems built. Solar Water Heaters: Individuals living in warm climates and freezing climates alike can now enjoy the benefits of solar water heating.
Although the technologies are somewhat different depending on if there is ever a freeze lasting longer than a night or two, solar hot water is a viable alternative wherever someone may reside. Solar Shingles: From all Appearances, these seem like normal shingles, but look closer and you will see that they are actually thin-film solar cells. The amorphous silicon material used in these shingles is reported to be much more capable of collecting sunlight than regular solar panels while still being powerful enough to be applied as a roofing material. They are installed in an overlapping pattern, like regular shingles, thus providing the exact same amount of weather protection. The wires run under a plywood roof deck that protects the home from the extreme heat these solar shingles absorb, and the shingles are held in place by a glue-like EVA compound that is activated by heat. Recreational Solar Kits:
The average Joe and Jane consumer can buy complete solar kits that have everything you need to get solar power ready to go in their RV’s, weekend/seasonal cottages, and boats. Your average solar kit will include: solar power Battery: Russian scientists have developed a battery that captures solar energy without needing an outside panel or collector. A real 21st century innovation, in addition, it collects energy from celebrities, irrespective of meteorological conditions. New Materials: We Touched it in the preceding section on solar shingles, but thin-film solar cells deserve a repeat mention in any post on present trends in solar polar. This brand new, silicon-based high-tech technologies adheres heat pumps and solar cells on other surfaces, whether wood, drywall, glass windows, vinyl – envision the probable applications
