Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. A solar panel is connected to batteries and most of them use the regular 12 volt batteries that are used in cars. Sealed lead acid batteries seem to be the most popular type because they are inexpensive, safe and robust. You can save hundreds of dollars by finding low-cost or free batteries in your area. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Only a true sine wave inverter, not a modified sine wave device, will convert the energy properly, but at a higher price.
Solder on your diode before you attach it to batteries. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary.
The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
