You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. The expense of the solar panels would be offset by the savings on your electricity bill. There is good news about building solar panels. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. The process itself involves photons hitting electrons in the silicone material on the solar cells, which become electricity. It takes a great number of solar cells to create a solar panel that can generate enough electricity that is meaningful. 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. 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.
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. Depending on the amount of sunlight you get, you may be better off with a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector.
Concentrating solar collectors are panel that need to be positioned in such a way that they get the maximum possible amount of direct sunlight, meaning that they are the best option for areas that get a lot of sunlight year round. 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. You could have a company that specializes in installing solar panels advise you on which kind is best for your home if you’re not sure.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. 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. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time.
As you can see, building a solar panel requires a bit of skill with tools but it is something anyone can do. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
