Install Solar Panels to Cut Costs
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric 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.
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. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
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. Solar panels are also getting less expensive as more people use them and the systems are getting more efficient. Once you have solar panels, you’ll never be dependent on centralized power companies again; what’s even better is that you can install them yourself without too much difficulty.
Your climate and how much sunlight you receive are important factors to consider before getting solar panels. 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 get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. 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.
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. 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. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. 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. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. In this day and age, you can feel safer knowing that your energy needs don’t depend on things like oil, gas or coal being affordable or even available at all.
