The Advantages of Using Solar Panel Systems
More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. The good news is that you can actually build your own solar panels for half the price. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. The thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires.
You’ll not only benefit from saving money, but it’s also good for the environment. A lot of the energy that’s produced these days is done through many processes that have a very bad impact on the environment. However, the production of energy with solar panels has no negative impacts on the environment at all. Plus, since it uses sunlight to make electricity, it is a renewable energy source, in other words it isn’t a resource that can be depleted, like oil. The good effects it has on the environment aren’t always noticeable immediately, but the more people who use energy sources that are clean the healthier the environment will be. The effects that will take place in the long-term will be wonderful, and the future generations will be able to feel them. But if we keep polluting how we are now, our grandchildren won’t be able to see trees outside, they’ll be in museums because we’re doing a good job of destroying our planet.
With the DIY method of solar panel creation your will need to create a box for the solar cells to rest in groups within when the desired outcome is a solar panel. Containers can be made out of a wide range of materials but the one that most people prefer is wood because it is easier to work with. 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. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
