Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For

There are a variety of positives when it comes to solar panels, especially since they harness the natural elements on earth to provide us with green energy. The fact that they are a renewable energy source, meaning that it isn’t a resource that will run out, is an added bonus. So, if you have been wondering whether or not installing solar panels is worth it, read on to learn more about this amazing energy source.

If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.

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. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.

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. There are many people or companies who could tell you, based on your location, which type of solar panel is best for you; even if you want to install them yourself, you could call someone to get this information.

If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. When building solar panels, you have to start with solar cells that are powerful enough for your needs. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.

On average, 80 solar cells will produce about 100 watts of electricity. Based on how much energy you need, you can use this figure to estimate how many solar panels to build and how large they’ll have to be. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
