Install Solar Panels to Cut Costs
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the 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. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
You may want to consider building and installing solar panels yourself; this is a fairly simple project, and the materials you’d need are quite easy to find. The power of the solar cells you use will be the main factor that determines how much energy you get from your solar panels. By using higher quality solar cells, you’ll be able to generate more power.
It takes about 80 solar cells to generate 100 watts of electricity, so you have to consider this ratio when figuring out your needs. Depending on how large your home is and how much solar power you want to generate, you can calculate the size of your solar panels and how many you should build.
Solar panel systems are most certainly the future of energy production for people’s homes, not just for the reason that they’re cost-effective, but also because they have a positive impact on the environment. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
