The Positive Points About Solar Panel Systems
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the environment. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
You can run your lamps, television, computers and even get hot water from the power generated by a solar panel on the roof of your home. Once these panels are installed, this energy won’t cost you anything, so you can save a lot on utility costs.
Depending on where you live, you can probably get a rebate or tax break when you install solar panels. Like many other forms of technology, solar panels are getting more affordable as they get ever more advanced and more people install them. If you do the job of installing solar panels yourself, then you’ll be able to benefit from energy independence without even having a high up front cost.
The plexiglass is for protection of your cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. Only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell because wood tends to expand and shrink with the weather. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.
Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder a diode first. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary.
Solar panels are going to be the future of electricity production in the home because they’re not just cost-effective, they are also helpful to the environment. So by installing them sooner rather than later you can save more money on your electricity bills.
