What will happen when there is no sun out? No sun, no power?
You will be able to get energy and there are two ways to generate energy when there is no sun: by storing solar energy in a battery bank, or by tapping into the grid.
Is Solar Power Expensive?
No, it really isn’t that expensive after all! Not only is it affordable over the life of the system (even saving you money), but it also improves your resale value and reduces greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. Currently, there’s an initiative offered by the USA government called the solar tax credit. The whole aim of this tax credit is to let you save money on the installation of your solar energy system.

What are the types of solar panel mounts?
The most popular mounts are the roof ones due to the best place to set up solar panels is on a South facing roof and at angle of around 30 degrees, to make solar panels more efficient. If your roof faces a different direction the effect will still be good enough to provide your home with clean energy, but a south-facing roof will always fare better. Please, make sure there is no shade in the place you are going to set up your solar panels. Remember that you can use different types of mounting that depends on your roof. We have magnetic solar panel mounts that goes on metal roof, or metal surfaces.
Ground Mounts allow you to pick the optimal tilt angle in a south-facing direction. We have some ground mounts easy to set up. Check them here. We offer a truck mount RV that works with solar and wind turbines.

Each type has a distinct set of features that makes them better suited for certain solar projects.
Monocrystalline solar panels are the most common for residential solar installations. Monocrystalline solar panels usually have the highest efficiency and power capacity out of all types of solar panels. Monocrystalline panel efficiencies can range from 17% to 22%.
What is the handling capacity of Solar Panels for Our Battery Boxes?
