What to Consider When Installing Solar Panels
Before electricity and central heating, the sun was the only source of energy for the earth and this was enough to allow human civilization to flourish. We obviously depend on the sun to heat our planet, but there are actually many diverse ways this energy can be harnessed for our daily use. By installing solar panels in your home, you can have a very practical and inexpensive form of energy that has many uses.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. To make sure that the electricity does not flow backwards, these units are also necessary. To prevent damaging any or all of your batteries over time, using these controllers is very important. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
