The Upside of Using Solar Panels
Energy from the limitless resource of the sun is the primary focus of those that develop solar energy products. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? Well, read on to find out.
A major worry for many households is the cost of the solar panels which can and probably has dissuaded many from 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 type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells. If you have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. This means you should get a true sine wave or modified energy converter. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Though more expensive, only the true sine wave device can create genuine AC electricity.
Everything required to build solar panels can be found on the internet or at a home improvement store, so you may want to think about doing it yourself. The most important component of your solar panel will be the solar cell, so you need to make sure you are buying good quality units. If you want to get the maximum amount of solar power, then, you need the best possible solar cells.
For every 100 watts of electricity you require, you’ll need about 80 solar cells. The size of your solar panels and how many of them you’ll need will depend on how much power you want to get out of them.
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. When you have solar panels, you can be reassured that you can power your home no matter how expensive utilities get, or even if services are disrupted.
