Understanding How Solar Panels Work
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. 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. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
You can get hot water, power all of your appliances and more simply by installing a solar panel on your roof. You’ll be able to reduce or even put an end to traditional utility bills as you can get solar power for free.
Depending on where you live, you can probably get a rebate or tax break when you install solar panels. Fortunately, as they get more popular and the technology advances, it’s getting cheaper all the time to install solar panels. If you do the job of installing solar panels yourself, then you’ll be able to benefit from energy independence without even having a high up front cost.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. You should only 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. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. These devices will prevent overcharging the batteries and ensuring the voltage levels are correct. 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. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage. 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.
