The Positive Points About Solar Panel Systems
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. 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. By installing solar panels in your home, you can have a very practical and inexpensive form of energy that has many uses.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create 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.
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. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
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. 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. 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.
Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with your solar panels. Containers can be made out of a wide range of materials but the one that most people prefer is wood because it is easier to work with. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
