Solar energy companies in Miami, FL, Please HELP!?

Well it's simple my energy bill is killing me and I made my decision, I AM GOING SOLAR! I am looking for a solar energy company in Miami, Florida selling panels, batteries, cables, the whole kit. It would be great if they export worldwide. I was also wondering if there is a table as if your home is what you need this large panels of many things. Thank you for your help. Uhhhm hello? I did not ask for reasons not to buy solar but where I can buy just answer the question or not! I live where it's almost a Mircal if we see some rain, at least one day a year OK! We did not even winter and 32 Celsius degreasing every day!

The guy has a point above, you must also invest in units of energy, light bulbs, refrigeration, A / C, 100% of everything you use. On the positive side of this easy to do. Here some links to help you. All these links can help you in some way or another. First get the meter, see the link, get rid All your phantom electrical loads. Tip, do your hors allows all switchable, so when you leave the room, a medal from the switch to turn All the things off.

Looking for wind and solar power kits that are under $ 12,000.?

My class is looking for energy engineering Wind and solar kits to the residency system in Washington State. Our budget is $ 12,000. We need a whole kit. And should generate at least 1000 watts.

A typical home needs a 2000 or 3000 Watt (2 or 3 kW) solar power unit. To power your toaster will require 1000 Watts. To power your hair dryer, it should perhaps be from 1500 to 1800 Watts. A microwave could be from 800 to 1500 Watts. If you choose a 1000 Watt system, you may have to walk around with wet hair and cold sandwiches. The price of a unit of 2 or 3 kW complete worth approximately 20,000 to $ 30,000 installed. Or about $ 10 per watt (or about $ 10,000 for 1000 watts or 1 kW). With discounts utility / Buydown / incentives, you can get the cost to $ 8 to $ 9 per watt. So you might be able to install a 1000 watt system for $ 12,000, but not sure – it could be close. The main reasons are: 1) The solar unit will work well for 6 or 8 hours a day — but when the sun goes down, your power is zero. So to make it effective, you need batteries. It would take several batteries at about $ 100 each to store energy during the day, you will be able to night. Absolutely necessary for an autonomous system if you need power at night. These batteries have an expected Life maybe 5 years or less. They will need to replace in 5 years. 2) The solar plant will provide 12 volts DC. Your home uses 120 volts to run your microwave and toaster and television. Therefore – you'll need an expensive electronic piece called an inverter. It converts 12 volt DC to 120 volts CA. This adds to your budget, and it is expensive. And it is electronic – it will fail at some point. Sometimes it lasts 5, 6 or 8 years – and needs replaced – At considerable cost. Your opinion on "wind power" are even bleaker. Similar issues as solar energy. It works when the wind blows at least 7 mph. If the wind is not strong enough, you get no power. And to think — a hot summer day is not too hot when the wind blows. But on that hot summer days — it is "very hot" because there no wind. Warm days have little or no wind blowing or they would be a "hot day". means a hot day — no fan or without A / C. The budget of $ 12,000 might install a 1 kilowatt solar unit, but it would give up a hair dryer and microwave, electric oven, dryer. Unless you're in a candlelight dinner with cold sandwiches, a more realistic solution would cost approximately $ 20,000 to $ 30,000 for a unit of 2 or 3 kW solar with battery backup.

Solar Power Energy subsidies in Andalusia in Spain.?

I would like to obtain information on availability and criteria for obtain a grant for installing solar energy to my home to reduce the cost of heating water. We live in the province of Malaga (Axarquia region) of Andalusia, Spain.

Hello, I saw your question while I search for information on solar energy. I had solar water in an old house and found I never ran out of hot water. The ON has a good element solar energy, this week, here's the link if you do not have paper. http://www.surinenglish.com/noticias.php?Noticia=8496 Regards Liam

What you must be a design engineer photovolatic?

I want to go to the field of photovoltaic design in some years after the economy gets better and I have some more experience as a regular electrical designer. At now I understand everything and spec transformers after the electricity company in commercial and residential buildings. Regarding the job descriptions, all the ads I saw were rather vague. They want some solar experience, a BSEE or equivalent experience, a background power / system design, etc. The fact is that PV is so much a niche sector that I've never taken lessons at school even talk about it (even with the 3-phase power, we had only weeks to explain it) and the information there is rare. I think certification NABCEP, but what else would benefit?

It seems to me that is oriented towards NABCEP installer certification rather than design, but they would probably teach the NEC requirements and familiarize yourself with the specialty products available. You could study the documentation of manufacturer photovoltaic and contact some of them to see if they have information not on their websites. Go to shows and fairs Energy and talk to suppliers. Attend seminars set up by suppliers. Keep looking for the kind of trade magazine Web sites and subscribe to related trade magazines print that you can find.
