Understanding How Solar Panels Work
More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. This article has some of the most important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
Undoubtedly one of the best benefits of installing solar panels is the fact that you’ll be making your own energy, so you won’t need to rely on the electric grid for power. You will at the very least be able to save on your electricity bills, and you may even be able to drastically reduce them. Also, you can actually earn money because in many areas the government will buy any surplus energy you create. However, even if this is not the case where you live, the savings you can make by installing a solar panel system are enormous. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. 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. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
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. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. 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. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. It is then necessary to connect the cells to one another via soldering.
Without a doubt, solar panels are definitely the future for producing energy in the home, not just because they’re cost-effective but they’re also good for the environment. So the sooner you install them, the more money you’ll save.
