The Upside of Using Solar Panels
Solar panels offer many benefits because they create clean energy by using the natural elements of our planet. The fact that they are a renewable energy source, meaning that it isn’t a resource that will run out, is an added bonus. Maybe you’ve thought about getting solar panels, but you’re unsure if they’re worth it. If so, I recommend reading on to learn more about this fantastic source of energy.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
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. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used. Solar panels are generally mounted on the roofs of homes or buildings and can be used to power anything from a single appliance to your entire home. Likewise, solar panels can also be connected to the heating system and you can then heat your home with the help of solar power.
