Thinking about solar? It's easier to start small | Green Tech - CNET News - 12 views

  • Thinking about solar?
  • Green Ray Solar this week is expected to announce UL certification for a solar panel that puts out alternating current, rather than direct current as most solar photovoltaic panels do today. AC panels can be simpler to install and wire together than traditional panels, which makes a piecemeal approach easier,
  • Traditionally, solar panels are tied into a device called an inverter, which converts the direct current from panels into household alternating current. Strung together, several panels produce enough voltage to run an inverter which, sized for a rooftop array, is roughly as big as a computer monitor.

  • A microinverter brings that DC-to-AC function onto each individual panel. Proponents say the technology simplifies installation and improves panel performance.
  • For example, shading on one panel will not affect the output of other panels connected to it, as happens with panels connected to a centralized inverter.

    Asteroids and comets are believed to be ancient remnants of the earliest years of the formation of our solar system more than four billion years ago. From the beginning of life on Earth to the recent spectacular impact of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 with Jupiter, these so-called 'small bodies' play a key role in many of the fundamental processes that have shaped the planetary neighborhood in which we live.
