The Positive Points About Solar Panel Systems

While we’re accustomed to many types of energy and technology, the only power source we couldn’t live without is the sun. Solar energy is one of the most practical and economical forms of energy when we know how to take advantage of it. With easy to install solar panels, it’s possible to get heat and electricity you can use for all of your power requirements.

The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. However, the best one is the one that creates the exact same type of electricity that comes out of the wall socket and that is the true sine wave. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.

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. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead. Solar panels are generally mounted on the roofs of homes or buildings and can be used to power anything from a single appliance to your entire home. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
