Understanding How Solar Panels Work
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the environment. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
Undoubtedly one of the best benefits of installing solar panels is the fact that you’ll be making your own energy, so you won’t need to rely on the electric grid for power. This means that you can greatly cut down your electricity bills and maybe even slash them dramatically. Additionally, the government may buy any surplus electricity you produce which means that you can get paid for it. Regardless of whether this is something that operates in your area, you will be able to make enormous savings by installing a solar panel system.
The plexiglass is for protection of your cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. Using a single dot of caulk will allow the wood to shift without damaging your solar cells. Once the caulk has set, all you need to do is to drill a hole in the box for the wires but make sure to fill it with caulk after you have pushed the wires through to make sure that no moisture gets in. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. Plywood is a great option to use for the back, but you can use any type of wood you have available. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. You’ll need to have a hole in the box that will make it possible for you to get the wires pulled outside the box too. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other. 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.
