Solar Panel Systems – The Benefits of Using Them
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. 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.
Mounting a solar panel on top of your home allows you to receive solar energy that can be used for many purposes, such as lighting and heating your home and giving you hot water. Your utility bills can be reduced or even eliminated by doing this.
While there is a cost involved to actually install solar panels, this can be offset by rebates or tax breaks that are available in many places. Solar panels are also getting less expensive as more people use them and the systems are getting more efficient. If you do the job of installing solar panels yourself, then you’ll be able to benefit from energy independence without even having a high up front cost.
The container for your solar panel is simply a box with a Plexiglas front, which will allow sunlight to flow in but will ensure that the cells are protected. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. After the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. To prevent damaging any or all of your batteries over time, using these controllers is very important.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
