How Solar Panels Operate To Help You
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. Our very own sun will live on for over 4 billion years giving us more than enough energy for our lifetime. Low cost energy can definitely originate from solar panels, especially if you can work with companies that offer rebates and rewards prior to installation. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? This article details this exact process.
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. 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.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. Once the caulk has set, all you need to do is to drill a hole in the box for the wires but make sure to fill it with caulk after you have pushed the wires through to make sure that no moisture gets in. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder a diode first. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead. You must place solar panels on top of your building or home so that they can receive sunlight and power your home at the same time. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
