The Advantages of Using Solar Panel Systems
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. One solar cell can generate about 0.5 volts of power, which is why a solar panel is made up of numerous solar cells. The thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron.
Solar panels will not only help you to reduce your costs, but it’s good for the environment. Most of the electricity being produced today is done through processes that have a significantly negative impact on the environment, through waste and pollution. On the other hand, the production of solar power has no by-products or any negative impact on the environment whatsoever. Some fuels, like oil, will eventually run out, however because solar power uses sunlight to create electricity it will never run out. The good effects it has on the environment aren’t always noticeable immediately, but the more people who use energy sources that are clean the healthier the environment will be. In the long-term the effects will certainly be awesome, and they will be seen by your children and grandchildren. Because we are destroying our planet at such a fast rate, our grandchildren may never get to see a tree outdoors; they’d have to go to a museum.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. Since sunlight needs to get into each cell, plexiglass coverings are perfect ways to protect the cells from the elements and still allow full sun exposure to the cells. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. It is then necessary to connect the cells to one another via soldering.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
