Building your own solar panel can be easy.
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. Our very own sun will live on for over 4 billion years giving us more than enough energy for our lifetime. One of the key reasons that solar panels are becoming more popular is that discounts make it more affordable for those that want to try it out. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? This article details this exact process.
One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. The process itself involves photons hitting electrons in the silicone material on the solar cells, which become electricity. One solar cell can generate about 0.5 volts of power, which is why a solar panel is made up of numerous solar cells. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. You need to get one of the following power inverters which includes modified and true sine wave devices. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. It is a little more expensive than the modified sine wave, but it’s worth paying a little extra in the long run.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
