The Upside of Using Solar Panels
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.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells. All you need to do this really is a 12 V battery for storage and a solar panel to create electricity. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. A true sine wave inverter is the only device that will give you the same AC electricity that comes out of your sockets. By spending a few extra dollars on the right inverter, you will be able to use your electricity in your home.
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. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells.
Solar panels are going to be the future of electricity production in the home because they’re not just cost-effective, they are also helpful to the environment. So by installing them sooner rather than later you can save more money on your electricity bills.
