Later, we had transferred a lot of our everyday loads to solar electricity, increased our electrical independence, and were reducing our electricity bill to the tune of US 13 to 15 each month (about 30 of our total consumption). This year, we moved again, this time into my wife's dream home. With its long, south-facing backside, it's also my dream home. It is located in a subdivision governed by covenants that actually permit solar installations, as long as they have a minimum detrimental...

Thermosyphon Systems

Thermosyphon System

Another relatively simple, passive system, and the most popular solar water heater worldwide is the thermosyphon. Common in Japan, Australia, India, and Israel, they are easily recognizable by the fact that the tank must be located directly above the collector. Thermosyphon systems work on the principal of heat rising. In an open-loop system for nonfreezing climates only , the potable water enters the bottom of the collector and rises to the tank as it warms. In colder climates, an antifreeze...

Electric Auto Association

PVs are made from hyper-pure silicon, the same stuff used to make transistors and integrated circuits. For years, the PV industry has been using the surplus silicon from the electronics industry. Today, the PV industry has grown to the point where it demands more silicon than can be supplied by the overflow from the electronics industry. This has created a shortage of hyper-pure silicon for PV modules. In addition, the governments of some countries, notably Germany and Japan, have realized the...
