How Solar Panels Operate To Help You
Energy from the limitless resource of the sun is the primary focus of those that develop solar energy products. Our very own sun will live on for over 4 billion years giving us more than enough energy for our lifetime. One of the key reasons that solar panels are becoming more popular is that discounts make it more affordable for those that want to try it out. So how do solar panels really work? The following will reveal this mystery to you.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. Using a single dot of caulk will allow the wood to shift without damaging your solar cells. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. Solar power can free you from depending on external conditions for your power needs, so that no matter what happens you’ll have a cost free way to get energy.
