Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. 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. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. 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 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. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells. 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. You can save hundreds of dollars by finding low-cost or free batteries in your area. Storing electricity is only part of the process; you must convert this electricity into AC to be used at home or in your garage. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. However, the best one is the one that creates the exact same type of electricity that comes out of the wall socket and that is the true sine wave. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
It’s not hard to build solar panels yourself, as you could get all the materials you need at local stores or online. The solar cells you buy are the central element of your solar panels, so this is the first thing to consider. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.
On average, 80 solar cells will produce about 100 watts of electricity. Considering this you can now determine how large to make your solar panels and how many of them you need to power your home.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. In this day and age, you can feel safer knowing that your energy needs don’t depend on things like oil, gas or coal being affordable or even available at all.
