Are Printable Solar Cells For Real?

Students of solar energy must learn not only the technology of today but also what will likely be here tomorrow. Future solar cells will most likley be completely different from what we have today. For one thing they will likely be thin and flexible and produce much more electricity from the same area of cells. Read more How Far Away Are Printable Solar Cells?

What Is DC Coupling In A Home Solar Power System?

What Is DC Coupling In A Home Solar Power System?

The facts about DC Coupling.

Direct current ( or D.C. ) is the type of electricity that is naturally produced by solar panels. It is also the type of electric current that is needed if you are to store the energy in a chemical battery or supercapacitor. DC is not however the type of electric current that we need to run our home electrical appliances or equipment for industry. Read more What Is DC Coupling In A Home Solar Power System?
