Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. Solar energy is “green” meaning it leaves no negative impact on the environment not to mention it is likely to be around for a couple billion more years, or so the experts say. 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.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You may want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. A plain old lead acid battery, which is very affordable, is what you’ll need. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. More than likely, you will want to use your appliances at home which requires purchasing a true sine wave inverter to convert electricity. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
Many people don’t take any action because they’re worried about the cost of installing solar panels. They are worried that installing solar panels will cost more than they’ll save. There is some good news though, you can create your own solar panels at home. In fact, you’ll be able to reduce the costs by around 50%, and the internet is a good place to find most of the equipment needed, including solar cells which are available on eBay and other similar sites. There may also be significant rebates and tax incentives if you install a solar panel system, which is worth doing some research on. The reason behind this is the government would like to see lots of people using clean energy sources for their energy needs, so builders can get large tax breaks to encourage them to put up solar panels.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
