Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the environment. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. 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 have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
The plexiglass is for protection of your 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. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should 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 the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged.
Undoubtedly, solar panel systems are the future for energy production for the home due to their cost-effectiveness over the long term as well as the fact that they are good for the environment. So, you can save more money by installing them sooner rather than later.
