First of all, you need to have electricity available in the area where the generator will be located (see picture ).
A renewable energy source of electricity can be built at home without a costly generator.
You should have a solar panel, batteries and an appropriate electric appliance (such as an air conditioning unit or a wood-burning stove) that will use solar energy to generate more electricity. This will be connected to a grid.
The amount of electricity generated by solar panels depends on the size of the panel, the type of photovoltaic cell in your panel (e.g. silicon wafers, organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, or liquid metal hydride cells) and other factors like the weather conditions.
It is possible to generate power from any kind of generating equipment, even a home appliance used for other purposes (see table).
Solar generation systems
The two most common solar panels are solar thermal, which is powered by the sun itself, or solar electric, which is usually powered by batteries. Each of these is very different and requires a different approach to set up.
Solar thermal panels
Solar thermal is a generation system. At some time in the future, you will be able to generate energy by heating sun from your own or from someone else’s rooftop.
In a solar thermal installation, all your solar panels will be mounted on a mast, and a turbine will be mounted on the roof.
The solar-energy generated by the solar panels will be captured and stored in heat-absorbing ceramic, usually ceramic-infused copper.
If the temperature in your home rises, your heat-absorbing ceramic will be heated and then the energy will be stored (called storage in the energy trade).
After that you will need to generate electricity, which will be powered by the electricity you have stored from the solar thermal panels.
In some areas, the temperature of your house may rise above the optimal temperatures the ceramic can handle. For example, a single window in a home built in the early 1900s may have exceeded the optimum temperature of a thermal panel system. In that case, all the energy from the solar panels will be lost and the ceramic will go bad.
You will need to take steps such as installing ventilators, adding insulation, or changing the way the roof is erected.
Solar electric is another generation system, and it has two types: solar thermal electric
