Solar Panel Systems – The Benefits of Using Them
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing 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.
One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. It takes a great number of solar cells to create a solar panel that can generate enough electricity that is meaningful. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron.
Your climate and how much sunlight you receive are important factors to consider before getting solar panels. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.
Concentrating solar collectors are panel that need to be positioned in such a way that they get the maximum possible amount of direct sunlight, meaning that they are the best option for areas that get a lot of sunlight year round. If you don’t get that much sun, however, you can still benefit from solar power with a non-concentrating solar collector, which can operate from reflected as well as direct sunlight. 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.
With the DIY method of solar panel creation your will need to create a box for the solar cells to rest in groups within when the desired outcome is a solar panel. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. Since sunlight needs to get into each cell, plexiglass coverings are perfect ways to protect the cells from the elements and still allow full sun exposure to the cells. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
