The Upside of Using Solar Panels
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
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. In order for you to attach the solar cells and put the box together it may be necessary to have some wood glue and silicone caulk on hand.
If you want to install solar panels, you first have to calculate how many hours of sunlight you get on average. Depending on the amount of sunlight you get, you may be better off with a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector.
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 are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct sunlight. If you still aren’t sure what type is best for you, you always have the option of consulting a professional.
Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder a diode first. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller. While you will need to have some DIY skills to be able to make your own solar panels, it isn’t as difficult as many people think. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
