Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. 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. 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.
If you’re using solar panels for your power you won’t need to rely on the public electric grid, which is probably the biggest benefit of using a solar panel system. This means that you may be able to drastically cut your electricity bills, but at the very least you’ll be able to cut them down a bit. In addition to this you may also be able to get paid for any extra electricity you produce, as the government purchases it in some areas. Installing a solar panel system will enable you to make big savings, regardless of whether this scheme operates in your area or not.
If you want to install solar panels, you first have to calculate how many hours of sunlight you get on average. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
If you get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. If you don’t get that much sun, however, you can still benefit from solar power with a non-concentrating solar collector, which can operate from reflected as well as direct sunlight. You can always consult with an expert if you don’t know which type of solar panel would be appropriate for you.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for your solar panels. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. It is then necessary to connect the cells to one another via soldering.
The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
