Advantage Laser Solar Panel Project

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010 | Green Power

Day 1 of the solar panel project got off to a bad start. The crane started setting up at 9:00 and was ready to go, but we had no panels. The truck was already a day late and communication with the trucking company was terrible. First the panels were supposed to be there Monday morning, then Monday evening, then Tuesday morning at 7:00 sharp, then at 9:00 they were an hour out, finally the panels arrived at 2:00pm Tuesday. Meanwhile we had 10 people standing around with little to do.

Once the panels arrived, we got to work with the crane. We had 8 pallets of panels and two more pallets of support legs and other misc hardware. The nice thing about the Solyndra panels is they are so fast to install. Once we got trained on the assembly, we were able to have all 125 panels installed by 6:30 that evening. Yes, we did finish in the dark, but it felt good to get the panels installed.

I was researching small solar panel info and found this site. I found similar sites, like that help you install your own solar panels but I need to find out where to get the solar panels.

Solar cells generate no emissions. Most energy is produced around the world by burning coal in big power stations. We all know the negative effect this is having on our environment.

solar cells are very good but they are not very efficient and they are costly-‘*

even with the price drop, solar cells are still quite expensive if you want to get more than 500 Watts ”
