The Reasons That Solar Panels Are Important
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. Our very own sun will live on for over 4 billion years giving us more than enough energy for our lifetime. Low cost energy can definitely originate from solar panels, especially if you can work with companies that offer rebates and rewards prior to installation. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? By the end of this article, you will understand.
If you place a solar panel on your home’s roof, you instantly have a powerful source of energy that can provide heat and light for everything in your home. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
While there is a cost involved to actually install solar panels, this can be offset by rebates or tax breaks that are available in many places. Fortunately, as they get more popular and the technology advances, it’s getting cheaper all the time to install solar panels. Once you have solar panels, you’ll never be dependent on centralized power companies again; what’s even better is that you can install them yourself without too much difficulty. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. The most important component of your solar panel will be the solar cell, so you need to make sure you are buying good quality units. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.
It takes about 80 solar cells to generate 100 watts of electricity, so you have to consider this ratio when figuring out your needs. Depending on how large your home is and how much solar power you want to generate, you can calculate the size of your solar panels and how many you should build. Do it yourself skills are necessary as with any project but overall this is a simple task to tackle for many of us. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
