How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
The sun is amazing, especially considering that the energy it puts out is so powerful that the amount our planet absorbs in one hour is enough to cover the energy needs of our planet for one 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. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
If you want to install solar panels, you first have to calculate how many hours of sunlight you get on average. The two main varieties of solar panels are concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors; the best kind for you depends on where you live.
If you receive lots of sunlight most of the year, you should get a solar panel that can efficiently absorb direct sunlight, which would be a concentrating solar collector. Non-concentrating solar collectors, on the other hand, don’t require as much direct sunlight to absorb energy, so this is a better choice if you live in a less sunny region. If you still aren’t sure what type is best for you, you always have the option of consulting a professional.
In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.
Solar panel systems are most certainly the future of energy production for people’s homes, not just for the reason that they’re cost-effective, but also because they have a positive impact on the environment. So the sooner you install them, the more money you’ll save.
