How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
You can get hot water, power all of your appliances and more simply by installing a solar panel on your roof. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
Most areas now offer tax incentives to help make it more affordable to install solar panels in your home. Fortunately, as they get more popular and the technology advances, it’s getting cheaper all the time to install solar panels. 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. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
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. Containers can be made out of a wide range of materials but the one that most people prefer is wood because it is easier to work with. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
