Understanding How Solar Panels Work

While we’re accustomed to many types of energy and technology, the only power source we couldn’t live without is the sun. 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. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.

A major worry for many households is the cost of the solar panels which can and probably has dissuaded many from making the switch. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. In order for you to attach the solar cells and put the box together it may be necessary to have some wood glue and silicone caulk on hand. A solar panel is connected to batteries and most of them use the regular 12 volt batteries that are used in cars. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. Many places will offer great deals on these types of batteries along with coupons at your local store. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. This means you should get a true sine wave or modified energy converter. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.

Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder a diode first. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. You can also heat your home using the electricity from the solar panels which can save you money every winter.
