Solar Panel Systems – The Benefits of Using Them
The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place.
The kind of solar panels you get will depend on where you live, as the climate and amount of sunlight received varies from place to place. This is because there are two types of solar panels, namely concentrating solar collectors and non-concentrating collectors.
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.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. To prevent damaging any or all of your batteries over time, using these controllers is very important. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. Likewise, solar panels can also be connected to the heating system and you can then heat your home with the help of solar power.
