Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For

Solar panels have many advantages, especially since they provide clean energy by harnessing the natural elements of the planet. Plus, they are an energy source that’s renewable, so they will never stop producing energy which is great. You may have been wondering whether or not you should get solar panels installed, in which case I recommend you continue to read to learn more about this wonderful energy source.

Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. 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. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. All you need to do this really is a 12 V battery for storage and a solar panel to create electricity. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. Many places will offer great deals on these types of batteries along with coupons at your local store. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. This means you should get a true sine wave or modified energy converter. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. Though more expensive, only the true sine wave device can create genuine AC electricity.

In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.

As you can see, building a solar panel requires a bit of skill with tools but it is something anyone can do. So, you can soon have your own solar panel up and running and you might even end up powering your entire home with sunlight.
