4 Solar Panel Installation Videos

Originally published on Cost of Solar.

We’ve been writing for months about the massive solar power growth around the US and around the world, as well as the tremendous amount of money you can make by installing solar panels on your home or business ( href=”http://costofsolar.com/how-much-are-solar-panels-savings/” target=”_blank”>tens of thousands of dollars, on average). However, we haven’t posted any videos on the actual installing of solar panels on one’s roof. So, I decided to look around a bit for some good solar panels installation videos, and I’m happy to say that I’ve found a handful of cool and useful ones. They’re all a bit different, and the last one is definitely unique.

This first video is a 1-minute time-lapse video of a B-Corporation named WattElse installing solar panels in Australia:

This second video is a a slightly longer video of a solar panels installation in Germany, as well as a bit about how the solar power incentives work in Germany:


This third video is an even more detailed and step-by-step video of a company installing solar panels on a home in Virginia:

And this last video is a fun one. It’s a time-lapse visualization of over 860,000 solar panels across Germany from January 2009 through January 2013. From the YouTube page, the creators write, “The area of the circles represents the total installed capacity per location. Data is sourced from http://bundesnetzagentur.de. Visualization by Chris Davis and Alfredas Chmieliauskas.”

Pretty cool, eh?
