Understanding How Solar Panels Work
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. Exactly how do solar panels generate electricity? By the end of this article, you will understand.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. You can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. Making a solar panel at home means that you will need solar cells because a panel is simply a collection of solar cells mounted in a container of some sort. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. You still need a quality cell group that’s not damaged in order to maximize your energy output. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged.
Because solar panel systems are good for the environment and cost-effective they will most certainly be the future of energy production in the home. So by installing them sooner rather than later you can save more money on your electricity bills.
