How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
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. Several companies are now offering incentives that slash the costs of solar panels allowing most people to benefit from this cheap energy source. Exactly how do solar panels generate electricity? This article details this exact process.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. 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. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. Storing electricity is only part of the process; you must convert this electricity into AC to be used at home or in your garage. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. A true sine wave inverter is the only device that will give you the same AC electricity that comes out of your sockets. By spending a few extra dollars on the right inverter, you will be able to use your electricity in your home.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. To make sure that the electricity does not flow backwards, these units are also necessary. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used.
As you can see, building a solar panel requires a bit of skill with tools but it is something anyone can do. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
