The Benefits of Solar Panel Systems
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. 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. So how do solar panels really work? This article details this exact process.
If you’re using solar panels for your power you won’t need to rely on the public electric grid, which is probably the biggest benefit of using a solar panel system. This means that you may be able to drastically cut your electricity bills, but at the very least you’ll be able to cut them down a bit. In fact, you can also get paid because in many areas the government will buy any extra energy you produce. But even if this scheme doesn’t happen where you live, you will still save a lot of money with solar panels. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. 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. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. 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. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for 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. Plywood is a great option to use for the back, but you can use any type of wood you have available. You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. You’ll need to have a hole in the box that will make it possible for you to get the wires pulled outside the box too. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? Solar power can free you from depending on external conditions for your power needs, so that no matter what happens you’ll have a cost free way to get energy.
