The Benefits of Solar Panel Systems
Solar panels have many advantages, especially since they provide clean energy by harnessing the natural elements of the planet. The fact that they are a renewable energy source, meaning that it isn’t a resource that will run out, is an added bonus. You may have been wondering whether or not you should get solar panels installed, in which case I recommend you continue to read to learn more about this wonderful energy source.
All you have to do is mount a solar panel on the roof of your home to enjoy the benefits of free energy, for powering electrical appliances, lighting your home and even heating water. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
Most areas now offer tax incentives to help make it more affordable to install solar panels in your home. Fortunately, as they get more popular and the technology advances, it’s getting cheaper all the time to install solar panels. Considering that you can also install solar panels yourself, you can save even more money and then be able to enjoy an energy source no one can control or take away from you as long as the sun is shining.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. These devices will prevent overcharging the batteries and ensuring the voltage levels are correct. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged. While you will need to have some DIY skills to be able to make your own solar panels, it isn’t as difficult as many people think. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
