The Advantages of Using Solar Panel Systems
Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. There is good news about building solar panels. Use this article as a guide to building your own solar panels.
All you have to do is mount a solar panel on the roof of your home to enjoy the benefits of free energy, for powering electrical appliances, lighting your home and even heating water. Once these panels are installed, this energy won’t cost you anything, so you can save a lot on utility costs.
Depending on where you live, you can probably get a rebate or tax break when you install solar panels. Like many other forms of technology, solar panels are getting more affordable as they get ever more advanced and more people install them. Considering that you can also install solar panels yourself, you can save even more money and then be able to enjoy an energy source no one can control or take away from you as long as the sun is shining. If you have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. This means you should get a true sine wave or modified energy converter. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Though more expensive, only the true sine wave device can create genuine AC electricity.
Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with your solar panels. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder. You must place solar panels on top of your building or home so that they can receive sunlight and power your home at the same time. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
