Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. 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.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. 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 thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. Whether you ask a family member for help, or if you are good at soldering wires, this is something you should really try to do. A solar panel is connected to batteries and most of them use the regular 12 volt batteries that are used in cars. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. So, these batteries store the power produced by solar panels, which can then be converted into AC power with the help of a power inverter so the electricity can be used by appliances. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. It is a little more expensive than the modified sine wave, but it’s worth paying a little extra in the long run.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. To prevent damaging any or all of your batteries over time, using these controllers is very important. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
