The Advantages of Using Solar Panel Systems
To cut cost, more and more people are turning to solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. Use this article as a guide to building your own solar panels.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. It may surprise you to find that many of the products you already have in your home can be used to create a simple solar panel design, for instance, you probably own a saw, drill, screwdriver and a wooden container of some sort. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells. If you have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage.
Without a doubt, solar panels are definitely the future for producing energy in the home, not just because they’re cost-effective but they’re also good for the environment. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
