Type and Cost Of Solar PV Power Stations

Above Pic: 880-Watts Sunwize Solar Power Station with a 400-Watts Air X Wind Turbine. This Solar PV Unit has a 2.0 KWH per day capacity.

Cost: No fee for installation. A $75.00 tariff rate is charged on a monthly basis for the 880 watts PV system with a Wind Turbine. The cost is for O&M services in maintaining the PV Systems.

Above Pic: 640-Watts Kyocera Solar Power Station. This Solar PV unit has a 1.6 KWH per day capacity.

Cost: The customers is charged $95.00 per month. A contract is signed for a period of 15 years through a Lease Purchase Agreement. The PV unit is turned over to the family after contract is paid in full.



For many years, Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA) has been working with outside agencies to develop and maintain a Photovoltaic or Solar Energy Program. Since 1996, numerous families have been hooked up to solar power, bringing the total number of NTUA – PV families to more than 200.
Basically, these families live where it is just not feasible to extend electrical power lines because the average cost to extend the electrical grid is about $27,000 per mile. Given the lack of funds and the distance from electrical power, NTUA worked closely with these families, recommending to them that solar power is an alternative way, in obtaining electric power. In December 2000, Sandia National Laboratories, the Navajo Nation, and the Department of Energy, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), authorizing collaboration and technology transfer for the Navajo Nation. This inter-governmental relationship focused on the environment, education, economic development, and communication.

What can I use with this PV Systems?
  1. Residential lights
  2. Radio
  3. Communication equipment
  4. Computer
  5. Television
  6. Satellite dish for television
  7. Small refrigerator
  8. Small water pumping system
  9. Small construction equipment tools.
  10. Small kitchen appliances
  11. A backup generator can be used to supplement battery charging

The above are the combination of various equipment and appliances that can be used under the rated PV capacity.

Solar technology uses the sun's energy and light to provide heat, light, hot water, electricity, and even cooling, for homes, businesses, and industries.
Photovoltaic solar cells, which directly convert sunlight into electricity, are made of semi-conducting materials. The simplest cells power watches, calculators and the like, while more complex systems can light houses and provide power to the electric grid.
