1. - SOLAR MAN SOLAR PANELS SPECS / PRICES / INFO -
Welcome to SOLAR MAN'S independant world of solar panels;(Photovoltaics/Modules) (PV/M)section!! If interested in sections difficult to read throughout this website the Solar/Renewable Book could be a good option to purchase, observing that i.e specifications/manuals does not indicate/discuss certain aspects in depth.
CRITICAL ENERGY PRE - PLANNING (NOT HOUSEPLANS/ELECTRICITY BILLS) BEFORE WANTING TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY FROM SOLAR (THE SUN)/WIND/VARIOUS RENEWABLE SOURCES ETC); The following is how the process leading into quotations (identifying products/types) work at SOLAR MAN;
Preferably before any accurate solar/wind renewable-system quotation can be done; solar panels, charge controller, batteries, inverter etc. please ensure that you have the exact, number of WATTh or AMPh separately (as well as peak load at plugin); (because appliances wattage (''electrical consumption'') differ even if its the same brand etc); (normally these indications are written on the back of appliances in Watt or Amp), and please also make sure you know how long (potentially) you want to use these appliances for e.g: during day/night (how many times ie: in a week etc) in order to identify a suitable system design (small picture above) based on the aformentioned fitting into your specific requirements because everybody does not consume the same amount of electricity (e.g: at once/continues-consumption etc) and solar/renewables must be generated through alternative sources not through fossil fuels which are already generated/made/created/evolutionized.
Example of Pre-Planning: 2, 220 voltLED lights operating @ 10 w/h potensially burning 4 hrs at night (from 18:00-21:00) in the winter and 2 hrs in the summer, everyday/night of the week as well as weekends day/night etc.
The above is of critical importance to consumers if wanting to maintain and manage any solar/renewable system (''BIG/SMALL'') after purchase for longterm sustainability with regards to saving of money, as well as accuracy regarding system design i.e. various voltages identifications etc.
''Solar/(Wind)'' electricity must be generated with the above products within the above small picture in mind, there are other options as well available @ Solar Man, however pre-planning (not only i.e. 'load') is still essential for i.e. savings to take effect. (Sun shined /wind blowed (latter in wind turbine cases) indicates usage (i.e. in relation to charging/discharging rates/ratios etc) which in turn emphasize a lifestyle change, (wind can also be generated as mentioned, however the correct speed/velocity and amount etc is of importance).
The small picture above is for appliances which are made to work off sun energy (or appliances used in an energy saving manner) ie: special fridges, (solar) geysers, stoves etc sold at : Solar Man as explained throughout this SPECIAL EDITION LIMITED PERIOD website.
THE BOOK SOLAR ALL ABOUT DISCUSSES THESE ALL AND MORE VISIT NECESSARY SECTION FOR DETAILS!
The above and throughout is of high importance because solar (from nature) must be generated if sun shines its not made through ''efficient''; (however not clean) cheap fossil fuels which damages the planet. e.g escom/eskom from state owned municipalities / noisy AC generators working with e.g/I.E expensive dirty petrol/diesel polluting the planet, (where the latter preplanning is a necessity as well). In cases of normal ''backups'' systems ie. panels/charge (DC-DC) controllers are normally not necessary, batteries are for stoarge if power trips/go out/off.
PS: SOLAR MAN DOES NOT WANT THE ELECTRICITY BILL / ''UNITS'' / USAGE/''LOAD'' WITHIN IT. (E.G UNITS EVERYWHERE ARE NOT CHARGED THE SAME). SOLAR MAN WANT THE EXACT WATTAGE / TOTAL USAGE (NOT HOURLY) TO WORK WITH AS WELL AS PREPLANNING AS IDENTIFIED.
(After identifying electrical usage (not only e.g. 'load-peak' etc) then only products (DIFFERENT ONES DEPENDING ON CONTEXT/S WITH ABOVE PARAGRAPHS IN MIND) can be identified for a succesfull accurate design i.e. regarding system voltage/s: and/power generation in relation to storage/min/max coefficient correlation/s potensial=sustainability E.T.C, because panels normally generates power - storing toward batteries (for reserves) so that usage can take place normally through ''inverter''/inverterS contact us as to why how/connections/installing:db board ETC; (sounds easy however must be understood properly), there is a lot to know and learn technically etc.

Information and features of The Sanyo HIP Series Solar Panels:
The B series features the latest technological improvements including high module output, high voltage, and space savings. HIP Power is the most efficient and competitive cost per kwh panels in the solar market: HIP (Hetrojunction insintric thin layer), (Also sometimes referred to as HIT) solar cells developed by Sanyo are hybrid solar cells composed of single crystalline silicon wafers! The modules are efficient, while producing more power even at high temperatures. Using HIP Power Solar Panels allows maximum power generation per square foot, reducing the number of solar panels needed. HIT-HIP cells offer superior temperature characteristics, compared to conventional crystalline silicon cells. The result is +-10% (or more) energy produced at higher temperatures compared to standard silicon-based solar panels. All HIP Power Series solar panels guarantee that customers will receive 100% of the nameplate rated power (or more) at the time of purchase. With more kwh/ per rated watt, Sanyos HIP/HIT Power Series solar panels quicken return on investment and are ideal for areas with performance based incentives and renewable energy credits also! Like the HIT/HIP Power N Series, HIT/HIP Power B series modules materials are ideal for heat performance. Also, the HIT Power B series and HIT Power N series have similar frame structures and pre-drilled grounding and mounting holes for easy installation. The HIP Power B series is unique, in its cell design and configuration.

Because Solar is all about Energy Saving and/or being independant, and keeping the Planet Earth Clean; here are some useful Energy Saving Tips: (Before going solar know what appliances you would like to put on solar/renewable).
Some General Energy Saving Lighting Tips For Going Offf Grid:
You will save energy, money and eye strain by lighting your home properly. Follow these guidelines: The wattage of a bulb is not a measure of the amount of light it gives, but rather the energy it uses. For instance, a 100 watt bulb gives 50% more light than four 25 watt bulbs. Fluorescent lamps give five times the light and last up to 10 times as long as ordinary bulbs. Fluorescent lighting is more economical Watt for Watt than incandescent bulbs. They use less energy and can last about 10 times longer. Never confine lighting to one part of the room. Avoid heavy contrast by using lamp shades that direct light both up and down. Try not to install multiple lights (lamps or lighting fixtures) on a single switch. Above all, turn lights off whenever possible because, they use electricity while they burn. Clean your lamps and bulbs regularly, because dirt decreases the amount of light given out. Dimming switches allow you to regulate the light level and reduce electricity consumption to some extent. Use lampshades with a white liner. Liners should be sufficiently dense to hide the bulb but should transmit soft, even light. Use low energy lamps for exterior lighting. Dishwasher energy consumption can be reduced by turning off the dishwasher after the final rinse and before the drying cycle. The clean dishes can then be wiped with a dry cloth. Fill the dishwasher completely before operating. Partial loads waste electricity and water. Short wash cycles, rinse-only cycles, mid-cycle turn-off, and other features are designed for energy conservation as well as convenience. Connect your dishwasher to cold water supply unless otherwise directed. Normally only one wash and one final rinse cycle requires hot water which is heated by an element in the dishwasher. The dishwasher filters must be kept clear of debris. A blocked filter reduces efficiency and wastes energy. Proper loading is important for the dishwasher to work efficiently.Choose a refrigerator of a size based on the needs of your family a refrigerator operates at peak efficiency when filled. Do not overload your fridge, excessive products in your fridge will lower the quality of the food and use more electricity as much as +- 10 - 20% more for each extra product. Do not set freezing temperatures lower than necessary, it wastes as much electricity as excessive heat. Thick frost on chilling panels reduces cooling ability. If you do not have a frost-free model, defrost your refrigerator when frost is between 0,6 to 1,3 cm thick. (Find out more in the book SOLAR ALL ABOUT SOLD AT SOLAR MAN!). Do not open your refrigerator door needlessly.By getting into the habit of removing and replacing several articles at once, you will reduce the loss of cold air.Buy a washing maching which offers a variety of water temperature settings. A front loading washing machine uses less water and costs less to operate even though the purchase price may be higher than a top loader. Use warm and cold water setting as much as possible in order to cut down on energy needed to heat the water.Freezers and refrigerators operate most efficiently when filled to the capacity recommended by the manufacturers. Never forget that only one-tenth of a freezer's capacity should be used for freezing of resh food at any one time. The freezer must work harder to remove heat, and uses more power. Example, 28 litres will store 12,5 to 15 kg of frozen food and will freeze about 1,5 kg of fresh food at a time. (Find out more in the book SOLAR ALL ABOUT SOLD AT SOLAR MAN!).
