The Positive Points About Solar Panel Systems
While we’re accustomed to many types of energy and technology, the only power source we couldn’t live without is the sun. Today, we’re learning more sophisticated ways to benefit from the sun; solar energy is often the cheapest way to provide energy for our homes. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. 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.
If you want to install solar panels, you first have to calculate how many hours of sunlight you get on average. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.
Since concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb lots of sunlight directly, they are the best choice if you live somewhere that gets quite a bit of sunshine all year. Not everyone lives in a place that gets a lot of direct sunlight, though, and for anyone in this category a non-concentrating solar collector, which can absorb sunlight from reflection as well as directly, is the perfect choice. If you still aren’t sure what type is best for you, you always have the option of consulting a professional.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for your solar panels. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. Plywood is a great option to use for the back, but you can use any type of wood you have available. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. This way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? Solar power can free you from depending on external conditions for your power needs, so that no matter what happens you’ll have a cost free way to get energy.
