Solar Energy?
    #339958 - 01/04/10 01:15 PM (6 years, 11 months ago)

Anyone here have any knowledge on solar power?

I am beginning research today. All info is appreciated.

I am interested in something to power say ... a 1000 watt hid +  a 216 watt ho t5 setup, but allowing room for expansion.  I am researching this for a friend who has run into a very large sum of money so the price tag associated with most solar setups won't be an issue.

Just thought I'd drop a line here before I browse the net.

it's extremely environmentally friendly to use solar power, but unless this grow room is going to be in continuous operation for 20+ years your investment won't likely pay off.  I understand that money isn't an issue for this friend, but I see no reason for him to drop $30,000 on a solar array when he could have an equally high-caliber grow room for only about $2000, and then get something else fantastic with his money :shrug:

Yeah enough solar pannels to power even just a single 1000w bulb costs rediculous amounts of money



The only way solar grows can pay off IMO is if you just dont have electricity available because your grow is so remote

Thanks for the feed back guys.....and the bump trip :vaped:

All of you are spot on with the info. 

I  didn't find anything on a small enough scale that could supply the constant flow of power needed. So unless we wanna clear cut a two acre field in his backyard and slam it full'ah solar panels....it ain't happenin. I guess it was worth lookin into.
