The Positive Points About Solar Panel Systems
Energy from the limitless resource of the sun is the primary focus of those that develop solar energy products. Well, not for the next 4 billion years at least, which is how long the sun is expected to live. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? By the end of this article, you will understand.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them on Ebay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with your solar panels. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. This way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
