Solar Powered House Model for School exhibition project


Solar powered house is a simple process of converting sunlight into electricity. This process is done using concentrated photovoltaics either directly or indirectly.

Solar-powered house are a good example of the application of solar energy.

The main components of the solar-powered house is solar panels, a solar thermal system, solar walls to preheat the incoming ventilation and a store pump that stores the heat that will be used in the winters.

If there is any excess energy that will be stored beneath the house and when it is very cold, it will be used back for generating heat.

Solar powerhouses are very easy and simple to be built and also not expensive. There are special trackers that are used to make a note of the solar house functionality. With the advancement in technology, there are many variations of the solar powerhouse that is built.

In this video, we show a solar power house project for science exhibition. This is only for experimental purpose and yet very simple to make using materials that are easily available.

Materials Used:

  1. Solar panel
  2. Wires
  3. Cardboard
  4. Chart sheet
  5. Glue gun
  6. Black sheet
  7. Cardboard box

You use the resource/tools page section to find the tips where you can buy these materials used at a reasonable cost.

Questions and Answers:

  1. What are the components of Solar-powered house ?

       A. The components of a solar power house are panels, mounting equipment, dc-ac inverters, tracking mounts, disconnect switches, wiring and fuse box connections and utility power meters.

       2. What are the uses of solar powered house?

       A. Solar power is considered to be the most reliable form of renewable energy. It is used for household purposes and business purposes. It is used for heating water, generating electricity etc.

      3. How does a solar powered house work?

      A. The solar panels are placed on the roof of the building where the sun rays fall on them directly, thus collecting and storing the solar energy from the sunlight.

The DC signals are fed to the inverter that converts it into AC power. The switches that are connected will pass to the electricity to the fuse box and thus to the power grid.

      4. What is the impact of solar powered houses on environment?

      A. Use of the solar powered house is the most inexpensive way of generating electricity. Not only this, it reduces the air pollution that is caused by the electricity produced by fossils.


Solar powered houses are now becoming very popular because of their inexpensive prices and easy to build structures.

They can be setup in any household with minimum equipment. These systems help increase the load generating capacity, thus saving the utility from turning on the electricity that is ground generated during the need of the hour as well.

Solar power contributes to the clean and green principle of environment. Thus, solar power houses does not burn a hole in your pockets by reducing the bills you pay for electricity.
