What to Consider When Installing Solar Panels
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. It will cost you about half the price to build your own solar panels. This article has some of the most important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. So, these batteries store the power produced by solar panels, which can then be converted into AC power with the help of a power inverter so the electricity can be used by appliances. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. If you want your solar panels to give you the maximum efficiency, you have to start out with good quality solar cells. The more powerful they are, the more energy you’ll get out of them.
Eighty solar cells will get you about a hundred watts of electricity, though this number is only the average. Based on how much energy you need, you can use this figure to estimate how many solar panels to build and how large they’ll have to be.
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 energy gives you a viable option that frees you from being dependent on the power companies, no matter what happens in the future.
