Understanding How Solar Panels Work
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing 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.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. The process itself involves photons hitting electrons in the silicone material on the solar cells, which become electricity. 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. Whether you ask a family member for help, or if you are good at soldering wires, this is something you should really try to do. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. A plain old lead acid battery, which is very affordable, is what you’ll need. Many places will offer great deals on these types of batteries along with coupons at your local store. Storing electricity is only part of the process; you must convert this electricity into AC to be used at home or in your garage. You need to get one of the following power inverters which includes modified and true sine wave devices. More than likely, you will want to use your appliances at home which requires purchasing a true sine wave inverter to convert electricity. It is a little more expensive than the modified sine wave, but it’s worth paying a little extra in the long run.
It’s not hard to build solar panels yourself, as you could get all the materials you need at local stores or online. If you want your solar panels to give you the maximum efficiency, you have to start out with good quality solar cells. The better the quality, the more power they can produce.
The usual ratio to keep in mind is that eighty solar cells will generate approximately one hundred watts of electricity. Depending on how large your home is and how much solar power you want to generate, you can calculate the size of your solar panels and how many you should build. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
