Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? We obviously depend on the sun to heat our planet, but there are actually many diverse ways this energy can be harnessed for our daily use. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
All you have to do is mount a solar panel on the roof of your home to enjoy the benefits of free energy, for powering electrical appliances, lighting your home and even heating water. Your utility bills can be reduced or even eliminated by doing this.
Even though there’s an initial cost when you install solar panels in your home, there are a variety of rebates and tax incentives available that make it worthwhile to do this. Fortunately, as they get more popular and the technology advances, it’s getting cheaper all the time to install solar panels. Considering that you can also install solar panels yourself, you can save even more money and then be able to enjoy an energy source no one can control or take away from you as long as the sun is shining.
Solar panels will not only help you to reduce your costs, but it’s good for the environment. The majority of methods for producing energy these days are not good for the environment because they create a lot of pollution and waste. On the flip side, producing electricity with solar panels is good for the environment, as there are no by-products or negative consequences for the environment. 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. You might not be able to see the positive effects on the environment just yet, but if more people start using clean energy sources the environment will do much better. The effects in the long-term will be incredible and your children and grandchildren will feel the effects. At the current rate we’re going at, the future generations won’t see much of the wonderful environment we have today because we’re doing such a good job of killing it off.
Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with your solar panels. 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. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. 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. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder. You must place solar panels on top of your building or home so that they can receive sunlight and power your home at the same time. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
