How Many Solar Panels Do You Need To Live Off Grid?
Living Off The Grid Solar Energy Adventure Using Solar Panels In Rainy Cloudy Seattle Washington
One of the major misconceptions about solar energy is the myth that you need to live in some place like the center of Texas with a lot of desert sunshine which is just not true. Take a look at this video about a guy who lives way up north in cloudy Seattle Washington!
Seattle Washington gets about 3 to4 hours a day of usuable sun. Solar panels work there as shown on this video, it just takes more
panels to produce the same amount of power per day as someone living in Arizona. The exact number of panels depends on the amount of power you and your family use.
Wherever you live you can use solar panels to help increase your use of "green power" and decrease your use of fossil fuel. Look at this map made by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for the U.S. Dept. Of Energy.
You can clearly see that all of the U.S. including Alaska, gets enough sunlight for producing electricity no matter where you live.
What Else Is Here?
This information about green power energy involving Nikola Tesla has been forgotten about for a hundred years just recenty rediscovered.
