Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the environment. 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.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
When researching solar panels, you have to take into consideration the area you are living in and the amount of sunlight you get. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
If you live in an area that gets quite a bit of sunlight throughout the year, you should get a concentrating solar collector, which can absorb a great deal of direct sunlight. Non-concentrating solar collectors, on the other hand, don’t require as much direct sunlight to absorb energy, so this is a better choice if you live in a less sunny region. You could have a company that specializes in installing solar panels advise you on which kind is best for your home if you’re not sure.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. It is an essential component because it ensures that the voltage running into the battery is at the right level and it also ensures that the batteries don’t overcharge. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
