Understanding How Solar Panels Work
The sun is amazing, especially considering that the energy it puts out is so powerful that the amount our planet absorbs in one hour is enough to cover the energy needs of our planet for one year. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. Most people probably think it’s quite difficult to get hold of these but they can easily be found on eBay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
Many people don’t take any action because they’re worried about the cost of installing solar panels. They fear that the expense will be too high compared to the savings they can make on their electric bill. There is some good news though, you can create your own solar panels at home. In fact, you’ll be able to reduce the costs by around 50%, and the internet is a good place to find most of the equipment needed, including solar cells which are available on eBay and other similar sites. It’s worth doing a bit of research to find whether or not where you live has any rebates or incentives for installing a solar panel system. This is simply because the government would like people to use energy sources that are clean, so they will give generous tax breaks to builders who create homes with solar panel systems.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
