The Advantages of Using Solar Panel Systems
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. 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.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. 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. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
The kind of solar panels you get will depend on where you live, as the climate and amount of sunlight received varies from place to place. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
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, however, you only get a limited amount of sunlight, a non-concentrating solar collector would be a better choice, as these can also absorb reflected sunlight. If you have any doubt about which type would work best for you home, you should ask someone with experience in this field.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary. Do it yourself skills are necessary as with any project but overall this is a simple task to tackle for many of us. This is a task that only requires patience, materials and perseverance to succeed in making your own solar panel to save energy.
