Understanding How Solar Panels Work
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. Solar panels can actually be made at home; many people make them in an attempt to reduce or eliminate their electrical bill. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the cells. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. This is a task that only requires patience, materials and perseverance to succeed in making your own solar panel to save energy.
