Mr and Mrs G in Wells-Next-The-Sea wanted some to generate some electricity from solar energy. They didn't have a lot of space on their main houses roof for panels so we put them on their potting shed roof. Most people understand that the integrity of the Earth’s atmosphere, terrain, and oceans are being threatened by climate change. Since innovations in alternative power sources have made the technology more affordable consumers have been making the shift towards these more efficient options, ranging from choosing to drive all-electric cars to simply swapping out incandescent lights for bulbs with lower wattage or LED lights. The uses for solar panels around the home have become more varied thanks to the new innovations, much of this prompted by thoughts of climate change. 5.  Solar paint may be something that is not well known, but it is becoming all the rage in certain markets.

Got the door installed, I believe if you go look at S-Fs post on his basement reno you'll find my moaning about my door install. Then, full of confidence, I built a quick and dirty panel holder and put the first panel into place. I've got 4 of my 200w panels on some homemade hinges, that are making me keep my fingers crossed! This has prompted some energy companies and innovators to come up with creative solutions for generating electricity with solar power. It is solar panels, however, that have continued to lead when it comes to providing homes and powering devices with alternative sources of energy. These may include placing solar technology on dwellings and other buildings such as sheds and conservatories, (above). It involves collecting and trapping heat through the combination of the use of glass and reflective materials. They are wireless and quite flexible and the LED lighting is environmentally friendly and long lasting.

While there are other paints which may contain toxic materials that can have some negative health affects, solar paint is based on solar cell technology, cleanly formulated to actually harness solar energy and convert it into electrical energy.
Wait, I used local true 4x4 white cedar posts and guess what, they ain't close to straight.
I've got the metal roof on, some flashing has been done, the hinges for the panel rack went up today, but will have to take more pictures and post them anon. I foamed the joints between the sheathing and the studs (2x4) then insulated with roxul (rock wool) insulation. They'll be much easier to add as I'll be able to position the rack flat, place the panels on top and then bolt together. I'm thinking to attach to the lower wooden support strut with a small hinge and then use a wooden arm back to a peg in the side of the shed.
The truth is, fossil fuels are in finite supply and these sources of energy are beginning to struggle to meet the increasing demands of the world’s economies. Solar innovations have replaced the older thick and bulky solar panels with thin film solar cells. Also, there is now a solar powered Logitech Wireless keyboard that does not require batteries or traditional power sources. Certain medicines and vaccinations are required to be kept at certain temperatures and that is difficult in the Kenyan climate. The fact that the white snowy surface in the winter boosts the sun’s power makes this option quite viable for those who love to fish through the ice. These solar ovens can actually cook food at temperatures of up to 350 degrees with absolutely no fuel use. It's a two furrow plow, just the right size for clearing the topsoil from my power shed site. I wrapped some rope around the rack tying it into the bucket and forks and it lifted right up into place. After some consideration I'm thinking of adding some wood strips to support some of the panel weight so that the bolts really only hold the panels to the struts.
In addition to the problem of supply meeting demand, there is the fact that the traditional fossil fuels directly harm the atmosphere by releasing greenhouse gases and other pollutants when used.

This has reduced installation costs in solar energy and has broadened the potential uses and placement options for solar power producers. In the hot temperatures of Kenya, the solar-powered refrigerators have the ability to keep these medicines and vaccinations cool as they are being transported to rural communities by doctors, nurses, and aid workers. An existing fishing shack can be insulated and sealed with foil and a heat collector can be constructed from plastic sheets and a bug screen. There are indoor and outdoor versions of these solar ovens and the only real down side is they take longer to warm up than conventional ovens. That way I can drill holes into the support arm for the various distances required for the appropriate angle. Conversely, solar power is an alternative power source that is clean, simple, affordable, and sustainable.
These new solar innovations in solar cells have shown to produce ten times the energy, compared to the conventional rooftop solar panels of yesterday. An international team that included California’s Art Center College of Design, Princeton’s Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials, and the Kenya-based Nomadic Communities Trust all collaborated on the design of the crystalline solar-powered miniature refrigeration units. This included coming up with the bamboo camel saddle, which makes it possible for camels to transport the refrigerators over long distances. These windows are treated with an electricity-generating coating that is transparent and actually converts sunshine into energy. Even with outside temperatures of below freezing, the comfy fisher-person can enjoy temperatures of up to seventy and even eighty degrees Fahrenheit inside the fish shack. Imagine the Solar Window being installed on all sides of a fifty-story building and the amount of energy that would be generated.
