How Solar Panels Operate To Help You
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. 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. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
The kind of solar panels you get will depend on where you live, as the climate and amount of sunlight received varies from place to place. The two main varieties of solar panels are concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors; the best kind for you depends on where you live.
If you live in an area that gets quite a bit of sunlight throughout the year, you should get a concentrating solar collector, which can absorb a great deal of direct sunlight. Non-concentrating solar collectors, on the other hand, don’t require as much direct sunlight to absorb energy, so this is a better choice if you live in a less sunny region. If you still aren’t sure what type is best for you, you always have the option of consulting a professional.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. It is an essential component because it ensures that the voltage running into the battery is at the right level and it also ensures that the batteries don’t overcharge. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. To prevent damaging any or all of your batteries over time, using these controllers is very important. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
