What to Consider When Installing Solar Panels
Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. Building your own solar panels for half the price is good news. While this article can’t possibly provide a comprehensive guide to building your own solar panel, we will look at some of the most important aspects.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up 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.
If you want to install solar panels, you first have to calculate how many hours of sunlight you get on average. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.
If you live in an area that gets quite a bit of sunlight throughout the year, you should get a concentrating solar collector, which can absorb a great deal 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. 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. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? Solar energy gives you a viable option that frees you from being dependent on the power companies, no matter what happens in the future.
