Being skilled in a variety of electrical, electronic and mechanical work can be a big advantage to any individual especially in these uncertain times. While new solar technologies are constantly in development and may increase solar output in the future, silicon-based solar panels that convert between 12% to 17% of the sunlight that they collect into useable electricity are still what small-scale solar installations use. Current battery technology that is used to store solar generated electricity requires some ongoing maintenance to ensure they are operating efficiently and last a long time, such as checking battery charges and acid levels on a regular basis. Even with proper maintenance, battery banks that are used to store solar generated electricity need to be replaced approximately every eight years, which is a considerable expense that needs to be factored into the decision regarding whether or not to install a solar electricity generating system that … Read the rest
