Heating water is often an energy ignored when it comes to solar energy but one of the easiest to create, this system has been done using a couple of old solar panels, obviously no longer working but work great for heating water. You can’t really see what they have done inside the solar panels but there is a grid formation made up of pipes for which the water flows through. I like this video though as it does show how quickly the system can work and how easy it is to form up.
I came across this video today covering using a 12v lighting system with Solar power to supply its energy and its broken down to make a basic system easy to understand so wanted to share it. Obviously the rig could just as easily be setup with a wind turbine over solar if need be or even combine the two. The system is fairly easy to understand and in most locations you can no doubt buy the system as a kit.
