Solar Panel Systems – The Benefits of Using Them

The reason that solar panels is so popular today is that the sun is an endless source of energy that we can rely upon. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. With the help of solar panels, everyone can now enjoy the benefits of this cheap form of energy, especially since most areas provide tax incentives and rebates to people who switch to clean energy. Exactly how do solar panels generate electricity? By the end of this article, you will understand.

One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. However, you do need to be handy with a soldering iron and a saw, so if you aren’t really into DIY, maybe you should ask a friend who is for help.

Your climate and how much sunlight you receive are important factors to consider before getting solar panels. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.

Concentrating solar collectors are panel that need to be positioned in such a way that they get the maximum possible amount of direct sunlight, meaning that they are the best option for areas that get a lot of sunlight year round. Non-concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct sunlight. You could have a company that specializes in installing solar panels advise you on which kind is best for your home if you’re not sure.

A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. These devices will prevent overcharging the batteries and ensuring the voltage levels are correct. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used.

The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
