How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. 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.
When researching solar panels, you have to take into consideration the area you are living in and the amount of sunlight you get. Depending on the amount of sunlight you get, you may be better off with a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector.
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.
Solder on your diode before you attach it to batteries. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.
The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
