Welcome to the Learning Center!

 

Have you ever wondered about how all this works? How does a solar cell work? How does wind actually create power? What is a lithium-ion battery? What is a power inverter? Well you came to the right place! The Learning Center is a collection of videos that answer those very questions and set you down the path to Powering your Future!

HOW DO SOLAR PANELS WORK?

Its a fact The Sun is the most powerful object in our solar system! The Earth gets bombarded with immense amounts of light each day and humanity found a way to harness that light to produce power! But how exactly do solar panels work?

HOW DO WIND TURBINES WORK?

Wind Turbines, they are not just for killing birds! OK that was mean and sadly accidents do happen, but that doesn't mean that wind turbines are bad. In fact humans have been utilizing the power of the wind for thousands of years but how does this modern version actually produce power?

Power inverter?

A power inverter is not when you take a battery and flip it upside down! It actually is a very crucial part of any off-grid energy system that allows you to use the power that is stored in your battries. But how do they work exactly?

What is a lithium-ion battery?

Ah batteries, the back bone of most energy systems! Hey you need to store that power somewhere and lithium-ion batteries are currently the best of the bunch. So lets show them the respect they deserve by learning how they work.

DC AND AC? WHAT IS AN ELECTRICAL CURRENT?

There is AC and DC? Power Inverters? Transistors? What the hell even is an electrical current to begin with?

MORE VIDEOS TO COME!!!

But in the mean time here is a cool video about an amazing invention from Nikola Tesla.
