Titanium Dioxide Coating
Place 6 grams of Ti2 powder on a mortar and grind evenly.
Slowly pour in under a ventilated fume hood 1 milliliter at a time while grinding the mixture.
This will yield a milky white liquid.
Place a drop of clear dishwashing liquid soap and AVOID mixing to avoid it foaming and bubbling.
The dishwashing liquid will allow you to coat glass plates more evenly.
Pour this solution to a small bottle and allow cooling for 15 minutes.
Have you ever seen a solar panel that is so handy, you can roll it over to store it when not in use? There is a 124-watt solar panel available right now that is very practical to utilize and store. Now you might ask how powerful this is since it is collapsible. How effective the device might be?
Let us just say that it is capable of producing 42 volts open voltage! You can even charge a 24-volt system with it. Cool, huh? You can go ahead and hook it up with a trusty inverter that can handle a higher voltage and use it accordingly! Continue reading →
Energy, a vital and the most important issue in our day to day life. Since the dawn of civilization man has been using various types of energy from different energy sources. But because of these energy sources being limited, it has become a prime concern for this modern power dependant world. For this reason the economically developed countries are emphasizing on the development of renewable energy sources for the proper utilization of it.
When it comes to the DIY-er’s who build their own solar panels, one critical and important issue is the Battery Bank they need to consider in order to store the amount of electricity produced by the panels in order to get off the grid.
When you go for DIY option you should also think of DIY regarding your Battery Bank as you can’t afford just buying as many batteries as you need, because you will need about 30 batteries to go off the grid, and this is a substantial amount of money to spend!
In in Charlotte, North Carolina – they are paying $100,000,000 to install solar panels for your home, so we want to know just how difficult it may be to go green at your house. For answers, we talked to Bob Thomason: a man who’s wired up with solar panels in Myers Park, one of the leafiest and shade filled areas of Charlotte.
This is good news too. This is the story I was talking about. It’s saying ‘I thought that was a tent, apparently not but this is your everything has to deal with the weather segment built.
That’s right and it’s about an energy efficient home, right?
Yeah, but don’t call this a solar panel house. It’s a simplistic term. It’s one that’s designed to create as much energy as it takes to use. So it has that negative, neutral impact: harnessing the sun while maximizing efficiency and space.
