Tesla Solar Installed New Roof Plus Solar!

To begin, since I started The Green Living Guy, I introduced my readers to my Green Guru Guides series. We got Solar Power For Your Home in the first batch when we started. I helped produce with McGraw Hill.

Therefore this Tesla solar install and my book only adds to the purposes of green living. To be clear I was always going to get solar. The time was right! As for my book Solar Power For Your Home features a step-by-step instruction manual and useful photos and illustrations.

Here’s my solar install. Don’t forget I am in NY. ALSO ON reserve for Powerwalls. I was thinking 2 but now I might do 4-6 cause who doesn’t want to be off grid?!!?


During the 1970’s when Jimmy Carter installed solar panels at the White House.  President Obama reinstalled them back after Reagan’s Administration they tore it down. Don’t get me started.
Solar power has been around since the beginning of time (give or take a few billion years).

Bottom line, solar power is responsible for all existence here on Earth!

Furthermore, that is why Solar Power for Your Home is on MY HOME With Solar City or REALLY shall I Say: Tesla Solar Energy!

Now What does solar energy matter and why go with solar power?

Let’s face it, the sun has produced energy for billions of years. Here is the history of its use by humanity.

(A) Solar Energy and Power

First off, Solar energy is the light and heat from the Sun that are harnessing by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar power technologies offer electrical generation by means of heat engines or photovoltaics. Once converted its uses are only limited by human ingenuity. A partial list of solar applications includes:

  • space heating and cooling through solar architecture
  • potable water via distillation and disinfection
  • daylighting
  • hot water
  • thermal energy for cooking
  • high temperature process heat for industrial purposes

(A) Solar Radiation

Solar radiation (along with secondary solar resources, such as, wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass) account for most of the available renewable energy on Earth. Only a minuscule fraction of the available solar energy gets capturing for use..

A) Solar Technologies

Therefore, Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar. All depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute sunlight. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels like Tesla Solar did with PV on my roof. They convert sunlight into useful outputs.

Solar Energy Basics

First, the sun’s heat and light give an abundant source of energy. All that can be harnessed in many ways. There are a variety of technologies that Is developing to take advantage of solar energy.

These include concentrating solar power systems, passive solar heating and daylighting, photovoltaic systems, solar hot water, and solar process heat and space heating and cooling.

That’s cause solar power can be used in both large-scale applications. As well as in smaller systems for the home LIKE I HAVE!

Businesses and industry can diversify their energy sources. Thereby improve efficiency and as a result save money. All by choosing solar technologies. Most importantly they are for heating and cooling, industrial processes, electricity, and water heating.

In conclusion, homeowners can also get Tesla solar technologies. In addition you can produce enough electricity to run “off-grid” depending upon your local code. Most noteworthy and as well sell the extra electricity to the utilities. That’s depending on local programs. Then with the Tesla Solar and Powerwall soon.
