Understanding How Solar Panels Work
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. 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.
Using a solar panel system means you will be self reliant for your power, so you won’t need to rely on the public power grid, which is an excellent benefit. This means that you will be able to greatly reduce your electricity bills and even completely slash them in some cases. Additionally, the government may buy any surplus electricity you produce which means that you can get paid for it. But even if this scheme doesn’t happen where you live, you will still save a lot of money with solar panels.
The kind of solar panels you get will depend on where you live, as the climate and amount of sunlight received varies from place to place. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
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. If you have any doubt about which type would work best for you home, you should ask someone with experience in this field.
With the DIY method of solar panel creation your will need to create a box for the solar cells to rest in groups within when the desired outcome is a solar panel. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. Plywood is a great option to use for the back, but you can use any type of wood you have available. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. This way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. You’ll need to have a hole in the box that will make it possible for you to get the wires pulled outside the box too. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
