The Reasons That Solar Panels Are Important
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. We obviously depend on the sun to heat our planet, but there are actually many diverse ways this energy can be harnessed for our daily use. By installing solar panels in your home, you can have a very practical and inexpensive form of energy that has many uses.
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. Also, you can actually earn money because in many areas the government will buy any surplus energy you create. But even if this scheme doesn’t happen where you live, you will still save a lot of money with solar panels. 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. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. 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.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for your solar panels. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete. 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.
