Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For
Due to its inexpensive cost of development, and free energy from the sun, solar power is looking like a great energy alternative. Our very own sun will live on for over 4 billion years giving us more than enough energy for our lifetime. Several companies are now offering incentives that slash the costs of solar panels allowing most people to benefit from this cheap energy source. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? The following paragraphs will provide this explanation.
Many people are worried about the cost of solar panels, which is why they haven’t yet made the switch from standard electricity providers to this form of clean energy. 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. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. 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. Since sunlight needs to get into each cell, plexiglass coverings are perfect ways to protect the cells from the elements and still allow full sun exposure to the cells. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
