Why this Blog?

The purpose of creation of this new blog was to add all my work that will solely related to my DIY Solar and wind electricity generation system. I will also add here the adventure of my DIY micro-hydro turbine (PAT) unit that has been planned to be implemented in the beautiful Kalam valley. In the recent past i unintentionally got attraction toward the green energy and studied a lot about.

My last visit to Karachi home was the turning point to divert all my intentions and resources toward getting into hybrid solar+wind electricity system. The 12 hours shedding at Karachi was really a mental shock to me. The 2Hours alternate load shedding scheme was so pathetic that for three nights i had only 6 hours of sleep in total. The Starting/Stopping the generator (located at the third floor) was a real muscular exercise especially the last part of the night.

The ready made solution requires a handsome amount of money. Here i will post my DIY approach to get the job done considering the advantage of being low cost, worth of experience and as per my requirement and quality. I intend to work on both Solar and wind turbine simultaneously so that to give the relief to my family.

Lets see will i have success in this endeavor?

The Solar Panels at my DoorStep

I ordered these 90 watt Mono crystalline Solar  panels Qty:5Ea to a local supplier with a bargain price (Rs.220/watt or PKR221 (USPKR221)/watt). the shipment charges Rs.1000 (PKR1,001 (USPKR1,000)).Yesterday i received the panels with seaworthy packaging. All 5 panels weigh about 65Kg so a bit heavy and can be handle with two person. I intend to install these panels on a single rugged structure with Solar tracker and MPPT control unit. The solar tracker and MPPT control unit is still under study.
Now i think i must order one more panel to balance the weight on the structure. These panels are very delicate so i just open a small portion of covering to check the damages and quality of workmanship. I amazed to see that due to good packing and clear tagging instructions (FRAGILE) the solar panels were safe. The quality of the panels perfect. These panels came up with 5-year warranty.
