Make Your Home Energy Efficient With Solar Panels
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. Solar energy is one of the most practical and economical forms of energy when we know how to take advantage of it. With easy to install solar panels, it’s possible to get heat and electricity you can use for all of your power requirements.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells.
Your climate and how much sunlight you receive are important factors to consider before getting solar panels. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.
Since concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb lots of sunlight directly, they are the best choice if you live somewhere that gets quite a bit of sunshine all year. If you don’t get that much sun, however, you can still benefit from solar power with a non-concentrating solar collector, which can operate from reflected as well as direct sunlight. You can always consult with an expert if you don’t know which type of solar panel would be appropriate for you.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. 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 will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? Solar power can free you from depending on external conditions for your power needs, so that no matter what happens you’ll have a cost free way to get energy.
