How to erect a solar power plant: 5 MW green field PV installation in Eberswalde, Brandenburg built in 2011 A five megawatt solar installation at the Technology and Business Park was connected to the grid on July 12, 2011, within a short distance of Eberswalde, Germany, based solar system company Mp-tec GmbH & Co.KG. Mp-tec was not only involved in the project planning, but also responsible for the solar power plant's substructure for which its in-house developed Quick-line assembly system was used. Installed for the first time, the new single-foot assembly system allows for a quicker mounting of modules than conventional systems, resulting in less than three months from the start of the construction until the connection to the grid. The modular designed system will also be used in future ground-mounted solar plants and is module agnostic. Up to three rows of framed modules can be assembled horizontally, while five rows are possible with laminated modules. The 36,720 thin-film modules from Solar Frontier, a 100 percent subsidiary of Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K., which have been manufactured in the 900MW Kunitomi plant in the south of Japan, are especially environmentally friendly due to the absence of lead and cadmium. The completion of the solar power plant represents the first connection to the grid of an installation with Solar Frontier modules in Brandenburg. "This power plant is an additional important step towards developing our project business segment and achieving bankability for the Solar Frontier products in collaboration with Mp-tec and financing by the DZ Bank. We will increase our efforts in the future in order to further expand our project pipeline together with EPCs", said Wolfgang Lange, CEO of Solar Frontier Europe. The 17-hectare installation will produce 969 kWh per kWp according to the yield report and therefore generate energy for up to 1,500 two-person households. Moreover, it will save up to 3,900 tons of CO2 emissions per year. Michael Preißel, Mp-tec's CEO, said regarding the successful connection to the grid: "This project is of particular importance to us. On the one hand, we were able to prove our know-how with regard to assembly solutions and project development yet again, on the other hand the connection to the grid contributes to the realization of county Barnim's motto: 'the future is renewable'."

April 2016 edit: On March 31, 2016, I sold this house and the panels. It all now belongs to the new owner. During my nearly six years of ownership, all the panels, the wiring and the installation were completely trouble-free. However, six of the Enphase M190 inverters failed. All were replaced at no cost to me, although it took considerable coordination with Enphase and the installer to make that happen. The Enphase Envoy control box (shown toward the end of the video) also died and we bought a replacement. Otherwise, we never had any leaks or panel failures in our 5 years and 9 months of ownership. Back to the original description: During the week of June 21, 2010, I had a photovoltaic solar system installed at my home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The installation took place over two days, with the panels installed the first day and the electrical connections completed the second day. The system consists of 18 235-Watt panels, and each panel has a dedicated inverter installed under the solar panel. As you can see, the crews were fast, neat and professional. I gave a lecture with very detailed information about the cost and savings with this system. It's on video, and you can watch it at http://youtu.be/wtBdRaHo3JU. I shot this with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 digital camera and edited it using Corel VideoStudio Pro x2. Edit: The new digital electric meter was installed on July 14, 2010, so this system is now generating power and feeding the grid.

Visit http://www.diygreenenergyguides.com/earth4energy-diy-solar-panels/ Or, Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8e4jeMapnKs This video demonstrate how a grid-tied home solar power system works. It shows the exact process from the moment sunlight hit the solar panels, the actual power conversion and how the DC(direct current) electricity from the panels converted to AC(alternating current) for home use, as AC is the compatible form of energy for most home appliances. 10 Myths About Home Solar Power System Myth #1: Home Solar Power System Will Be More Efficient, Should You Wait? Fact: These days the media loves to hype emerging technologies, but the truth is we're still using the same solar technology we were back in the 1960's. Since then, solar has become only moderately more efficient (unlike computers or cellphones which experience dramatic improvements in short periods of time). Myth #2: Solar Power Does Not Work In Cloudy, Foggy and Cool Places Fact: Solar panels work just fine in ambient light and will produce significant energy in the fog or on overcast days. In fact, solar panels are actually more efficient at cooler temperatures than hot ones Myth #3: Home Solar Power Energy Is Stored In A Battery Bank Fact: Nearly all modern solar panel systems are grid tied which means they're connected to the conventional electricity grid. Your system generates power during the day and excess is fed back into the grid through a system called net metering. When this happens, your meter spins backwards and your utility company credits you for that power. Myth #4: Solar Panels For Home Needs Constant Maintenance Fact: Solar panels have no moving parts and do not require regular maintenance. Typically the recommendation is to hose off the panels once a year or so, but many panel owners actually never clean the panels and instead rely on the rain to do the job for them. Typically this will cause only a very slight loss in efficiency (about 5%) over the lifetime of the panels. Myth #5 : Home Solar Power Panels Caused Roofs To Leak, Deteriorate or Even Collapse Fact: Solar panels actually protect and preserve the portion of the roof they cover, but don't take our word for it. Check out this picture of solar panels that have been through a hurricane. If there's ever a problem with the roof that needs to be repaired, panels can easily be removed. Myth #6: Home Solar Power System Is Very Expensive and Will Never Pay For Itself Fact: Perhaps one of the most unfortunate solar myths is that it's only for rich people or environmentalists, when in reality many homeowners choose to go solar simply because it eliminates their big monthly electricity bill. In fact, solar is a very wise choice for people who could actually use the extra couple hundred bucks a month that they're currently paying in power bills. Myth #7: When Grid Power Is Out, The Home Can Still Have Power Using Solar Energy Fact: When the power goes out, grid-tied systems go out too. That's because it's not safe to be pushing electricity back out onto the wires while workers may be trying to fix the problem, so your inverter (the big box near your meter that turns DC electricity created by the panels into usable AC current) recognizes that the grid is out and shuts your system off. Myth #8: Home Solar Panels Will Make The Roof Appears Ugly Fact: In the last ten years there's been a growing awareness of how smart renewable energy is from both environmental and economic perspective, so solar panels are finally coming into their own and being regarded as an enhancement instead of an eyesore. It's about time! Homeowners' associations that used to be steadfastly against solar have changed their policies and are now going solar in groups. Myth #9: Installing Home Solar Panels Will Increase Property Tax Fact: In California and many other states, solar installations are property-tax exempt. From an investment perspective, this means that installing solar panels will increase the resale value of your house without costing you an extra dime in property taxes. The same cannot be said for other home investments such as swimming pools, a new deck, etc. Myth #10: Home Solar Panels Require a Tracking System To Follow The Sun's Angle Fact: Though tracking mechanisms can provide efficiency gains for your solar panel system, they typically do not increase efficiency enough to justify the additional expense and maintenance of moving parts in residential situations. More importantly, most homeowners don't have the additional space required for these systems.

I was asked by a friend in Australia to install his solar panels, batteries and inverter. This was a good opportunity for me to practice my skills in solar power installation. He had a complete solar power set complete with four 80 watt solar panels, two huge batteries, a solar charge controller and a pure sine wave inverter. This is from a camper he once had. At first we decided to cut an old wooden pallet to size and put the batteries on that. My friend and his kids helped get the pallet ready. When that was done i put the batteries on the pallet. This was a challenge because each battery weighs 160 pounds. I then wired up the batteries together in parallel to increase the total Amp Hours of the battery bank while keeping a 12 volt system. We drilled a hole in the box to accept the wires coming from the solar panels. I put a solar panel on the porch roof to test the system out. After connecting the solar charge controller to the batteries I then wired up a solar panel to the charge controller and saw that it was charging the batteries. But my friend came up with a better idea for the batteries and dragged out this huge trunk that will now house the batteries and double as a bench. I got the batteries wired up in the new trunk and this is where I had to leave it for the day.
