Make Your Home Energy Efficient With Solar Panels
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. Solar energy is “green” meaning it leaves no negative impact on the environment not to mention it is likely to be around for a couple billion more years, or so the experts say. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. It takes a great number of solar cells to create a solar panel that can generate enough electricity that is meaningful. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. 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.
Solar panels will not only help you to reduce your costs, but it’s good for the environment. Because many of the methods of producing electricity these days create a lot of waste and pollution, they are not good for the health of the environment. On the other hand, the production of solar power has no by-products or any negative impact on the environment whatsoever. In addition to this, sunlight is used to produce electricity, which means it is a resource that will not become depleted, unlike oil which will. Even though the positive effects of clean energy on the environment might not be currently visible, the more they are used the better the environment will do. The long-term effects will be immense, and the next generations will see these effects. 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.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for your solar panels. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. 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. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
