How to Build Your Own Solar Panel
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. This energy supply is really limitless and will continue on for many lifetimes. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? The following paragraphs will provide this explanation.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. 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. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. 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.
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. This is because there are two types of solar panels, namely concentrating solar collectors and non-concentrating collectors.
If you receive lots of sunlight most of the year, you should get a solar panel that can efficiently absorb direct sunlight, which would be a concentrating solar collector. Non-concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct sunlight. If you have any doubt about which type would work best for you home, you should ask someone with experience in this field.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. These devices will prevent overcharging the batteries and ensuring the voltage levels are correct. To make sure that the electricity does not flow backwards, these units are also necessary. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
