The Benefits of Solar Panel Systems
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
You can get hot water, power all of your appliances and more simply by installing a solar panel on your roof. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
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. Like many other forms of technology, solar panels are getting more affordable as they get ever more advanced and more people install them. Considering that you can also install solar panels yourself, you can save even more money and then be able to enjoy an energy source no one can control or take away from you as long as the sun is shining.
Before you install any solar panels, you should do some research, as the kind you get should be based on how much sunlight your area gets. Depending on the amount of sunlight you get, you may be better off with a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector.
If you receive lots of sunlight most of the year, you should get a solar panel that can efficiently absorb direct sunlight, which would be a concentrating solar collector. Not everyone lives in a place that gets a lot of direct sunlight, though, and for anyone in this category a non-concentrating solar collector, which can absorb sunlight from reflection as well as directly, is the perfect choice. There are many people or companies who could tell you, based on your location, which type of solar panel is best for you; even if you want to install them yourself, you could call someone to get this information.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. 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. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. You can also heat your home using the electricity from the solar panels which can save you money every winter.
