The ever-depleting energy resources over the globe have prompted humans to sift through alternate means. Renewable and clean energy are the keywords in our world. Solar energy is one of them, cheap and in abundance; at least, that is what we are told. So let’s check out whether it is true or not.
For over four years, Ferrell has been living with 9.49kW solar panels in a comparatively colder climate. He aimed to get the panels to reduce his electricity bill and carbon footprint. The idea behind matts shifting over to solar was to reduce his electricity bill and carbon footprint.
Ferrell also charged his Tesla Model 3 with the energy he produced and said it was indeed an experience that can be considered really cool. “I guess you could say I liked the idea of energy independence,” said Ferrell in his video.
Ferrell has smartly placed panels on his roof; both sides have been covered with panels so that he gets energy from the morning and evening sun. But his generation does not come without a few hitches, his roof is pretty small, and trees block the sun at certain times of the day.
The question is, does Ferrell generate enough energy that is required to meet his daily needs? How effective are his panels? What is the cost of maintenance over the years? This video answers all these questions and more.
