Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
The reason that solar panels is so popular today is that the sun is an endless source of energy that we can rely upon. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. But how exactly do solar panels work? This article details this exact process.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. You can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. However, don’t make the mistake of buying cells simply because they are cheap. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary.
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 the sooner you install them, the more money you’ll save.
