The Reasons That Solar Panels Are Important
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. The sun is estimated by scientists last for billions of years, clearly showing this energy source is trustworthy. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. But how exactly do solar panels work? The following will reveal this mystery to you.
Undoubtedly one of the best benefits of installing solar panels is the fact that you’ll be making your own energy, so you won’t need to rely on the electric grid for power. You will at the very least be able to save on your electricity bills, and you may even be able to drastically reduce them. In fact, you can also get paid because in many areas the government will buy any extra energy you produce. However, even if this is not the case where you live, the savings you can make by installing a solar panel system are enormous.
Before you install any solar panels, you should do some research, as the kind you get should be based on how much sunlight your area gets. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
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 are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct sunlight. You can always consult with an expert if you don’t know which type of solar panel would be appropriate for you.
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. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. 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 want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
