I give a breakdown of materials, construction method, as well as practical application behind my scalable DIY solar mount that has an option for automated tilt.

100% Solar power is what i wanted. I did it. My home is powered 24 / 7 / 365 days a year from the sun. Solar during the day and of a night i run off the stored sunshine in my 35 kWh Battery bank.

Our climate is changing so it is ever more important to manage heating and cooling in your home. This passive heater will save you money, too!

Build this window heater that uses the suns energy to heat your home or garage in the winter. No more drilling holes through the wall or rigging power hungry fans to blow air through your solar heater. This heater uses a thermosiphon effect to pull in room temperature (cold) air as it expels hot air into the room.

How to Build a Radial Flow Solids Filter for Aquaponic Systems

Views:256235|Rating:4.86|View Time:11:1Minutes|Likes:1589|Dislikes:47
After a false start the other week I finally have a new Radial Flow Filter with 50mm/2″ piping installed into the aquaponics system.. The larger pipe has helped with the flow rates & I have no more air lock problems with the fish tank SLO (solids lifting outlet)..

The whole purpose of the filter is to slow the velocity of the water so the solids can precipitate out and be removed from the system.. For this to happen the water must slow its flow long enough inside the filter for the solids to settle out, this is called the retention time.. I have read in a few places that anything over 45 second retention time is acceptable for larger solids, with 2 min being the desirable amount of time for filters like ours..

The formula I use to see how long the water is retained in the filter before moving on is:
Size of filter (in litres) / flow rate (in litres per hour) = Retention time in hours.
(Same can be done in gallons & gallons per hour)
For our system the equation looks like this..
50 / 2700 = 0.0185
Multiply 0.0185 x 60 to turn that into minutes & we get 1minute 11seconds.

Hope that info helps some out there interested in setting up a solids capturing RFF..

How to make a Solar Panel (part 3 of 3) – “how to build the case” – Easy DIY

Views:5468|Rating:4.94|View Time:11:53Minutes|Likes:85|Dislikes:1
How to make a Solar Panel! (part 3 of 3) – “how to build the case”. Easy DIY. this is the final installment of a 3 part series on how to build a Solar Panel From Scratch. came out great! panel i designed is 6v/3.6A/21.6w (max) and can be used an a single “stand alone” panel or as part of a “3 panel set”. three of these homemade panels hooked in SERIES gives you a very similar voltage and power output to the 3 panel set that harbor freight sells and works great for charging 12 volt deep cycle batteries. a single one of these panels will power up (or charge up) tons of things. couple of notable things: works great to power up computer case fans (like the type in all of my solar thermal air heaters). note that even though many are 12 volt, they actually run well on any voltage from 6 to 12v. it’s also great for charging up most modern electronic devices. the panels’ six volt output and 3.6A (3600ma) should give a solid charge to most all of them. *since i posted the other 2 parts awhile ago and you have to “dig deep” into my channel to find them, i’ll post the entire 3 part video series as one video w/extras in a few days for easy viewing. couple of notes: i bought the cells as a “kit” on ebay. it comes with 36 to 40 cells (which is enough for three of my panels), the tabbing/buswire, the blocking diode, rosin marker etc… all for about $25.00. then adding in the lumber ($13 to $20) and glass (at $5 a sheet), the cost to build is relatively low (esp. if you make 3 panels). works out to about 25/30 bucks a panel. *a single panel would be roughly 45 to 48 bucks ~ $25 (for kit) $13 (lumber) $5 (glass), plus misc. items. couple other things: for the metal “look” you could use aluminum tape around the edges and paint the wood maybe white (before adding the cells) and the diode is rated 6A. individual solar cell specs: each is: 3″x6″ .5v/3.6A/1.8w. lumber: 1/2″ plywood (cut to 22/ 1/4″ x 18 1/4″), Four one-inch square wooden dowels (2 cut to 22 1/4″ and 2 cut to 16 1/4″) and Four 3/8″ square wooden dowels. the glass is 16″ x 20″ standard window glass. notable hardware: Four 1.5″ screws (for the frame) and Fourteen one-inch screws (for the back). 100% clear silicone caulk. UPDATE: (11/17/2016) i just posted a video on how to make a wooden solar panel stand (specifically for this panel). if interested here’s the link
