Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. The good news is that you can actually build your own solar panels for half the price. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. These solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. The process itself involves photons hitting electrons in the silicone material on the solar cells, which become electricity. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. You can actually make your own solar panel at home and it doesn’t really cost much, especially since then you will be able to enjoy the benefits of free electricity. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. You may be surprised to find out that these cells aren’t as expensive as you might have thought, in fact only about $2 each.
Everything required to build solar panels can be found on the internet or at a home improvement store, so you may want to think about doing it yourself. When building solar panels, you have to start with solar cells that are powerful enough for your needs. The more powerful they are, the more energy you’ll get out of them.
The usual ratio to keep in mind is that eighty solar cells will generate approximately one hundred watts of electricity. The size of your solar panels and how many of them you’ll need will depend on how much power you want to get out of them.
Solar panels give you a cheap power alternative that can serve you well in difficult economic times and ever rising utility costs. When you have solar panels, you can be reassured that you can power your home no matter how expensive utilities get, or even if services are disrupted.
