Nowdays most are nickelmetal hydride (NiMH), which are less toxic than nickelcadmium (NiCad) batteries. Small, portable solar chargers that can charge all the different sizes are available at internet sites that sell solar products (see Resources, p. 152). Charging the larger 6-, 12- and 24-volt batteries used for off-grid and backup power can get a little more complicated, with unique maintenance and use requirements. If you’re interested in setting up an off-grid system, talk to an expert or the people who sell the solar equipment about recommended batteries.

And set it a minimum of 4 ft. down in a 20- to 24"-diameter hole. If the panel is higher than five feet, you’ll need to make the hole 6" deeper for every extra foot of height. Local soil and wind conditions may also necessitate a larger or deeper hole–it’s best to get specific guidelines for your area and panels from your dealer or building inspector. Solar water or hot air collectors can be mounted on pressure-treated posts buried in the ground or attached to post bases, or fastened to steel U-channel supports.

If you have a garage or shed on the far reaches of your property and you’d like to convert it to useful work space where you can store and charge batteries, watch TV or play music, or just put in some overhead lighting for hobby work, a kit like the one shown here may be just the answer you’re looking for. The kit used in this project is a 45-watt, 3-panel PV kit purchased from a large discounter. In addition to the three 15watt PV panels, it includes two 12-volt lights, battery hookups, a combination regulator/charge controller/safety fuse, and an adapter plug for different DC appliances.
