Make Your Home Energy Efficient With Solar Panels
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our 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.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. These solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. It takes a great number of solar cells to create a solar panel that can generate enough electricity that is meaningful. 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.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
