    @GUARDIANOFFOR what u wrote made no sense. i think ur post made me legally retarded.

    uning solar power = wery wery baaad idea in 200 youer more deadli then explosion of 10 nuclear powerplant BTW solar energi made is much less then energi required to make solar panels …… old solar panels is toxic and unrecyclabe waste that is not good for anything and will be here for milions of years /// Nuclear waste of 6 th gereation have live span max 100 years SOLAR POWER BAAAD IDEA!!!!

    2% of Earth’s land would power 10 billion at a western standard, assuming better insulation, led lights and electric cars. However, there is still infrared (heat) emitted when sunlight hits the dark surface of conventional panels.
    If MACHINE made batteries and GaAs concentrating systems were used instead, to power the world, there would be MUCH less heat and only 1% land needed…
    Search “oil storm solar” for quick dramatization

    Ummm…That didn’t explain anything about how sunlight is converted into energy, that was about how its used. Might wanna name your videos properly next time. Other then that very informative

    I want to see a system that is actually off the grid. I will believe they actually exist when I see one for myself. Call me a man of little faith but I smell ever so much bull shit when solar or wind power is mentioned.
    I am eager to learn but can find little true information on this.

    @leerman22 This is nuts, I got your message on the same exact day of enrollment in my renwable energies class. What a coincidence. lol

  10. leerman22 says:

    @hombrelubinero if your country is on Alternating Current then yes. you just need to make sure it fits your appliances’ electrical standards.

    Does this video apply to the european system?

  12. geckologicusa says:

    Solar power is the future, a single good investment on a top of the line grid tied solar system will last produce electricity for 30+ years. The PV solar system will pay itself in around 7 to 10 years depending on the size of the system, there are numerous incentives given by the federal and state governments and great financing plans too!

    For everyone committed to a solar powered future for America and the world, chekc out a relevant, entertaining musical message from Americana singer-songwriter Ben Sage here on YouTube at TheBenSage. Thanks.

    take those panels and put them in the basement.first you take a parabolic solar concentrator and put an robotic arm on it to follow the suns path.then make the focal point a mirrored shape cone that will send the light down through mirrored glass tubing straight into a mirrored shape glass box inside the mirrored shape box will be several solar panels that spin to keep them cool the mirrored box must have the mirrors inward to reflect the light sending from the parabolic focal point.ken van horn

  15. kennethvanhorn says:

    since you like solar power try using exhaust from your furnace to melt the snow and ice take the exhaust and tee it into your gutter drain pipe and on top of the gutters put holes in a round shape cap… that way the heated air will melt those ice dams on your roof

    after photo synthesis all carrots , potatos, redish is the batteries and leafs are the solar panals I think all right , any desert you can use power source same way. only water is the fact. hahahhah

  17. wafi0123 says:

    which you guys damonstrate this is very effective to patronize consumer and the market . if consumer can sell his product obviously should be happy after his investment.

  18. wafi0123 says:

    if you can sell your day time production it’s more than worthy.dbut you have to produce in a scale .

    But Until Now Most of the Inverter Around the World Still Can’t Pass The RCD Most Inverter Are Problem With RCD Safety .I Have an Experiment For About 12 Years Already until Today About 16 Inverter Experiment Most Of Them Are Not Pass Home RCD ???? It Was Unsafe.

    The title is “how does sunlight turn into electricity”

    but it really should be called “how sunlight can power your home” because the most depth you went into explaining how pv cells convert sunlight into energy is “pv cells when grouped together create a current”

    -_-

    How do solar powered watches work?
    We sell them on our eco site, but I haven’t got a clue how they work?!? :/

    Free energy is finaly here!But there are very powerfull forces that want to supress the technology,Go to LT-MAGNET-MOTORdotCOM and get the blueprints for a genuine magnet motor ,Join the revolution!

    where did u get the diagam cause i really need it

  25. bestpokemonfan4ever says:

    i needed it because of my solar energy project thanx
