WHAT DOES YOUTUBE HAVE TO SAY ?
A solar panel contains crystalline photovoltaic (PV) cells. Anytime the sun is shining, the cells capture energy from the sun in the form of photons. This causes a chemical reaction within the cells and releases electrons to produce direct current or “DC” electricity. The next step is to convert DC to AC
Homes and businesses run on alternating current or “AC” electricity. So the DC electricity produced by the solar system must be converted to AC before it can be used. This is done with an inverter which receives all of the DC electricity from the solar panels and coverts it to useable electricity.
Once we have usable AC Electricity, The inverter sends it to the electrical panel for distribution throughout the property. Now all of the appliances, gadgets, toys and everything else that requires electricity gets it directly from unlimited, clean solar power?
On an average day, a solar system will likely produce more energy than will normally be used in the daytime. Any surplus electricity which is not used is sent back to the local utility through the grid. This surplus electricity helps the local utility provide electricity to the grid and in most cases, credits are disbursed for all the surplus electricity accumulated.
The investment tax credit (ITC) also known as the federal solar tax credit, allows you to deduct 25% of the cost of installing a solar energy system from your federal taxes. The ITC applies to both residential and commercial systems and their is no cap on its value.
As long as you own your solar energy system you are eligible for the solar investment tax credit. Even if you don't have enough tax liability to claim the entire credit in one year, you can roll over the remaining credits for 5 years as long as the tax credit is in effect. However if you sign a lease with a solar installer, you are not the owner of the system and thus you cannot receive the tax credit. We DO NOT do leases.
Usually an HOA will allow Solar Panels as long as they are not located on the front of the house. However, if the HOA does not allow Solar Panels. Solar 365 can help with getting approval.

The number of solar panels it takes to mine bitcoin depends on the percentage of your energy you want coming from solar power as well as how much bitcoin you need to mine. It also depends on factors such as your location, the aspect of your roof, how much space you have available for solar panels, and what type of solar panels you wish to invest in. However, it typically takes around 450 to 500 Watts to run a single mining rig. This rises to anywhere from 900 to 1,500 Watts when running multiple graphics processing units (GPUs). Solar panels installed in a sunny location within the U.S. will produce around 229 Watts per square meter of solar panel on average. It’s estimated that bitcoin miners would need somewhere between six to twelve square meters of solar panels taking cloud cover into account, as well as the inability to generate solar power at night. A battery system is also necessary for storing energy to keep the GPUs running through the night or when there’s a considerable amount of cloud cover.

The final cost of a bitcoin mining rig is highly variable. For most people, the GPUs are the biggest expense. The larger the number of GPUs in operation, the more crypto that can be mined and the higher the potential reward. GPUs cost anywhere from around $300 to over $1,000.
On average, a bitcoin mining rig will cost anything from around $3,000 to $10,000 or more. And you’ll need to factor in the initial costs of solar panel installation if you intend to power the rig with solar energy.
The electricity to run your bit mining operation is free once you’ve installed your solar panels. You won’t have to worry about paying for electricity for years to come since modern solar panels last for several decades
The biggest cost of solar-powered crypto mining lies in the initial costs for the setup. There are few, if any, ongoing costs. And the result is a steady stream of passive income that can mount up over time.
Unfortunately, using regular sources of energy to power bitcoin mining has a negative effect on the environment since the process of mining is energy-intensive. Conventionally produced energy contributes to the burden of greenhouse gases, as well as causing a number of other pollution problems. Solar-powered bitcoin mining is a green, eco-friendly solution.
Additionally, there are many reasons why a power grid will experience interruption. Although solar power is immune to most of them! Once your system is installed, Solar power provides a robust, reliable form of energy once your system is fully installed.
The main drawback of solar-powered crypto mining is the relatively high up-front costs. It’s well known that the grid is cheap to start using since you only pay for the power rather than the infrastructure needed to run it.
There may also be issues around the amount of electricity produced by solar panels. A period of bad weather, for example, can significantly reduce the amount of solar power your panels produce.
You’ll need to remain committed to bitcoin mining for several years before you recoup the costs of your initial investment due to purchase costs of solar infrastructure. You’ll also need to mine on a relatively large scale to recoup costs.
The amount of space you have available to house solar panels also restricts the amount of solar power you generate. It may not be possible to install sufficient panels to run your bitcoin operation depending on your living circumstances.
Here we’ll take a look at how different types of EV batteries (and their battery sizes), as well as your solar panels’ efficiency, determine the number of panels you’ll need to charge your car.
Most home charging ports source energy from the electric grid. However, it’s possible — and much more sustainable — to source energy from solar panels instead. Attaching solar panels to your EV charging port at home will save you significant money since some EVs require a large amount of electricity to fully charge.
You need to determine the capacity of your EV’s battery before you can see how much electricity is needed to fully charge it. EV battery capacities are measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh) and range anywhere between
17.6 kWh and 200 kWh.
GMC Hummer EV: 200 kWh battery with 329 to 350 miles of range
Rivian R1T & R1S: 135 kWh battery with 314 miles of range for the R1T, and 316 miles of range for the R1S
Lucid: 118 kWh battery with 520 miles of range
Mercedes-Benz EQS: 115 kWh battery with 350 miles of range
Tesla Model S and Model X: 100 kWh battery with 387 to 520 miles of range for the Model S, and 335 to 371 miles of range for the Model X
Once you know the EV’s battery capacity, you can then calculate the amount of electricity needed to charge it. The size and efficiency of your solar panels will determine the number of them you need to generate an appropriate energy supply for your EV battery.
The number of solar panels you need to power your EV as well as your home depends on:
The manufacturer and type of solar panels you choose
How much sunlight is in your area
Your home and driving energy usage
Some solar panels are more efficient than others, so you won’t need as many to meet your energy needs.
A typical solar panel is 250 watts and will generate about 30 to 42.5 kWh of energy on a monthly basis. On the lower end of that, you’ll be making about one kWh of energy per day. This means you’d need around 75 solar panels to charge a Tesla model S to 100% every day if it starts at 0%. Your EV likely won’t be as low as 0% every time you charge it, making this a conservative estimate.
If you install high-efficiency SunPower panels, which are rated up to 420 watts per panel, you could generate up to 54 kWh of energy per month or 1.8 kWh per day, which means you would only need 42 panels
The average travel distance for a driver is 39 miles per day equating to about 12 kWh of electricity. As such, you’ll need 12 solar panels (that have standard efficiency) for your charging needs.
However, if you drive less than the average 39 miles per day and own more efficient solar panels, you’ll need fewer than 12 panels for your EV charging needs. Investing in high-quality, efficient solar panels is better in the long run.
Additionally, the average home in the U.S. requires between 19 and 34 solar panels to fully cover electric bills. You should expect this number of panels to increase with the addition of an EV to charge.
