How Solar Panels Operate To Help You
To cut cost, more and more people are turning to solar energy. 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. Building your own solar panels for half the price is good news. While this article can’t possibly provide a comprehensive guide to building your own solar panel, we will look at some of the most important aspects.
You can run your lamps, television, computers and even get hot water from the power generated by a solar panel on the roof of your home. Once these panels are installed, this energy won’t cost you anything, so you can save a lot on utility costs.
And you needn’t worry about the cost of installing a solar panel system because most areas offer people significant incentives to put up these panels in the form of tax breaks or rebates. Like many other forms of technology, solar panels are getting more affordable as they get ever more advanced and more people install them. 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. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. 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. A good quality cell is necessary, you don’t want to make the mistake of getting a damaged cell group if you intend to have a higher energy production. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar 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.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. 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 way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. You can also heat your home using the electricity from the solar panels which can save you money every winter.
