Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? 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. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
You’ll not only benefit from saving money, but it’s also good for the environment. A lot of the energy that’s produced these days is done through many processes that have a very bad impact on the environment. On the other hand, producing energy with a solar power system doesn’t harm the environment at all and there are no by-products either. And because it uses the sunlight to create energy it’s renewable, meaning it cannot become depleted. The good effects it has on the environment aren’t always noticeable immediately, but the more people who use energy sources that are clean the healthier the environment will be. The long-term effects will be immense, and the next generations will see these effects. But at the rate of destruction we’re currently going at, our children and grandchildren wouldn’t be able to experience the environment like how we do today.
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. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. 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. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
