  • is there any rule para tumagal ang battery?

    well as it applies to everything, simple just don't abuse the usage of your batts. general rule is don't over discharge and over charge.
  • How many solar panels do you want to use? I recommend you reading this review <click here for link>

  • How many solar panels do you want to use?

    di ko na gets question mo sir?



    39"x77' inches solar panels

    eto specs ng solar panel namin



    we have installed 64 pcs of solar panel=20kilowatts

    4 waterproof inverters = 5kilowatts each



  • wait muna ako pag available na carbon nanotube, imagine maimprove nya solar energy conversion by 90%,ibig sabihin yung current na 320w possible maging 600W, with the same size, tama ba?

  • ^"Improve solar panels efficiency to 80%"
    sana mura yan carbon nanotubes sa solar panels
  • papano math, yung current is about 20% lang tapos yung nanotubes 80%, ibigsabihin ba, 3x nung curent efficiency? maski mahal pa sya, kase imagine malakas conversion rate sa small space? yung current na 100 hectares halimbawa, magigng 30hectares pero same parin napoproduce na energy

  • Guys medyo naka pag research na din ako and alam ko san ung store na mura components magandang idea ba na ako bahala sa materials din papa tira ko sa iba ang installation and commissioning? balak ako sana 1.5kw grid tie system. Ung quote kase saken 2.5x ang patong pag all-in na. Salamat sa sasagot in advance.
  • @extreme
    try mo mag pa quote dito,kasama na installation ng inverter and solar panels
    <click here for link>
    diyan kami nagpakabit ng solar panels




  • @axelangel007 sa dumaguete city ako from visayas kaya siguro mahal ang quote saken dalawa na ung nilapitan ko siguro na ren sa logistics ng mga materials bagsakan na nga presyo ngayon ng solar materials kaya right time to have one. Ok thanks I will try to get in touch with them.
  • @axelangel007 naka net metering ka nyan? Ikaw ba ng process at madali lang ba?

    baka next month meron na kaming net metering,yung utol ko naglakad,referral
  • here's the contract between us and Meralco



  • @axelangel007 wow nice. Sisipagin na ko mag aaply nyan. Di na siguro ganun kadami tao sa Meralco ngayon.
  • mga brod tingin nyo mas mainam ba kumuha ng installer kesa mag DIY ng 3KW na set up? baka ako at tatay ko (grad ng electronics) magkakabit if DIY. nagresearch naman na ko at meron na din ako makukuhaan ng pyesa na set na. pag DIY ba yung set up makakaapply padin ng netmetering sa meralco?
  • pag DIY ba yung set up makakaapply padin ng netmetering sa meralco?

    depende siguro yan sa kausap mong tiga meralco,alam mo naman dito sa pinas ang palakaran
  • looking for a off-grid setup para sa isang kubo. lights, a 12v fan, usb charging, and probably a radio lang ang i power.

    will a 100W panel suffice? hapon until the next morning lang naman gagamitin yung mga appliances
    what battery capacity to get?
    baka may suppliers kayong mai-turo, preferably credit card. package na sana

    Para malaman kung kaya ng 100W, need details like watts of your 12v fan and how long it will run per day (hrs).
  • paano malaman battery size?
    1. alamin gaano ka lakas konsumo ng mga appliances
    ex. 100watts load X 5 hours = 500watt-hours
    2. upang mapatakbo ang load na 500watt-hours gamit ang baterya lamang
    a. note: kung lead acid kailangan mo nang 2x the capacity of the battery
    ex. 500watt-hours : 12v x 41.667amps, or 12 volt battery with 50ah capacity
    doblihin ang capacity dahil 50% lang dapat ang kinokonsumo lamang sa lead acid battery.
    ex. 12v 100ah
    b. kung lithium-ion or similar battery gagamitin, kahit same lang sa consumo.

    paano malaman ang solar panel system size?
    1. Dahil ang kailangan ibalik ang kononsumo plus loss due to efficiency, mag dagdag nang 10 to 20% sa ibabalik na kuryente.
    ex. gumagamit ka nang 500watt-hours, dagdagan ng 20%, kailangan ang solar panel mo ay kayang mag produce ng 600watt-hours kada araw.

    kung ang konserbatibong "malakas" ang sikat ng araw ay 4 hours. para ma kompute ang solar watts needed ay 600watt-hours/4 hours = 150watt panel.

    summary:
    load: 500watt-hours (600watt-hours due to loss)
    sun:4 hours
    panel: 150watts
    battery: 500watt-hours o 12v 100ah

  • Mukhang nasira yung Inverter namin for some reason (Zeversolar) and nagpapakita sya ng Error Code 3. After ng konteng research sabe lang is permanent fault daw yun and need replacement. Tanung ko lang sa mga may alam dito if may chance ba na ma-replace eto ng Solar Company (Solterra) dito sa atin, sabi kase nila 1 month to process daw yung request ko, or kelangan ko na ba maghanap ng pamalit sa Inverter (At kung pwede ba sa iba ako kumuha ng Inverter na ipapalet dito).
  • hi can anyone suggest a cheap and easy setup for ipcams..list of requirements and cost is very appreciated thankyou
  • @ParticleX San ba location mo?
  • Hi, I'm planning to use solar energy soon but I'm undecided as to which solar company to pick. I'm currently deciding between Solaric and Philergy. Any feedback on the two, especially Philergy? They boast all German made panels, inverts and cables at a premium price but does it really matter?
    Quotation from Philergy:
    3.3 kWp 310k total (German solar panel Soluxtec Germany; Solar inverter- SMA Germany)
    Solaric
    3 kWp 216k (awaiting info on materials used)
    5 kWp 340k
  • i have existing contract with HHO Trading

    3KW Grid Tie
    REC solar panel (singapore/norway brand) 25 yrs warranty
    SOLAX 5KW inverter (for future upgrade) 5 years warranty
    10years warranty for worksmanship
