The Advantages of Using Solar Panel Systems
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? Today, we’re learning more sophisticated ways to benefit from the sun; solar energy is often the cheapest way to provide energy for our homes. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. 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 want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. Most people probably think it’s quite difficult to get hold of these but they can easily be found on eBay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. 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. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
