Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Solar energy is “green” meaning it leaves no negative impact on the environment not to mention it is likely to be around for a couple billion more years, or so the experts say. 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.
Undoubtedly one of the best benefits of installing solar panels is the fact that you’ll be making your own energy, so you won’t need to rely on the electric grid for power. This means that you may be able to drastically cut your electricity bills, but at the very least you’ll be able to cut them down a bit. Also, you can actually earn money because in many areas the government will buy any surplus energy you create. But even if this doesn’t happen where you live, you’ll still make big savings from installing solar panels. Making a solar panel at home means that you will need solar cells because a panel is simply a collection of solar cells mounted in a container of some sort. 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. However, don’t make the mistake of buying cells simply because they are cheap. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller.
As you can see, building a solar panel requires a bit of skill with tools but it is something anyone can do. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
