About Me

Hi, I’m  Enrico and I write Residentialsolarpanels.org to help You get info to make the transition from a full-time energy dependent to successful energy efficiency.

I started Residentialsolarpanels.org in 2008 to help people who want to save energy using solar power or deal with the sometimes overwhelming prospect of starting a PV system.

Very interesting. I am a home inspector located in SE Pennsylvania and am inspecting a home on Monday that happens to have rooftop solar panels, a definitely uncommon sight here in SE PA! I did a quick Google search and found your website. I’ll comment on my findings after the inspection.

A wonderful surprise to receive news of this website by email. Solar energy use has certainly come a long way since 1979, when I worked installing direct heat water-filled solar collectors for a short while. Those days there was not even Ecomarsho nor the web, so lets hope the new initiatives will bring in cash and practical answers.

Very interesting article on the new technology. Too bad you don’t have an editor, however.

Hi Enrico,

My friend works for Solar City. I live in California. I am considering solar power for my home. The ONE drawback I have to it is we are still connected with PG &E. So, for example, if there is a power outage, we will not have electricity, even if we have solar panels. My question for you or anyone out there who could answer it is:

Is there any way to have independent electricity from solar panels wired directly to our home, without going through PG&E’s grid system?

Thank you Enrico,

You are doing a great job, helping people to know the basics and other important stuffs in solar technology, Which is expected to be the next big market globally.

Have you ever heard of installing ground solar panels on a public service right away ?

I have too many trees to install on the roof but I have at least 2 acres of sunny property. I know there are many local laws/regulations but just wondered if you ever heard of someone doing it.

I have an insulated closet, similar to a walkin freezer, 3 x 3 x 8 feet high where I want to dehydrate fruit. I am located at 21 degrees north in Hawaii. I want to raise the temperature from 70 degrees to about 120-130. I already have a propane on demand heater which hopefully can be used if needed when there is no sun. Airflow is critical so I am thinking that I need 3 small solar powered fans to circulate the air spaced at 2 , 4 and 6 feet off the floor. Please advise with your ideas and product suggestions regarding solar panels, radiators, fans, heat exchangers,thermostats, valves etc. Thanks..ed

I am extremely pleased to know that the opportunity for solar energy is, now, not just for the more fortunate individuals, but it also is reachable to the not so fortunate. Please tell me if there is a leasing company in Louisiana. Thank you.
