How Solar Panels Operate To Help You
Due to its inexpensive cost of development, and free energy from the sun, solar power is looking like a great energy alternative. Well, not for the next 4 billion years at least, which is how long the sun is expected to live. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. So how do solar panels really work? The following will reveal this mystery to you.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. These solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. 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. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. Sealed lead acid batteries seem to be the most popular type because they are inexpensive, safe and robust. A large part of the cost of creating a solar solution for your electricity bill can be avoided by finding cheap or free batteries. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. You need to get one of the following power inverters which includes modified and true sine wave devices. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Though more expensive, only the true sine wave device can create genuine AC electricity.
With the DIY method of solar panel creation your will need to create a box for the solar cells to rest in groups within when the desired outcome is a solar panel. 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 wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells.
Solar panels give you a cheap power alternative that can serve you well in difficult economic times and ever rising utility costs. In this day and age, you can feel safer knowing that your energy needs don’t depend on things like oil, gas or coal being affordable or even available at all.
