What to Consider When Installing Solar Panels
The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? Today, we’re learning more sophisticated ways to benefit from the sun; solar energy is often the cheapest way to provide energy for our homes. With easy to install solar panels, it’s possible to get heat and electricity you can use for all of your power requirements.
Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. However, you do need to be handy with a soldering iron and a saw, so if you aren’t really into DIY, maybe you should ask a friend who is for help.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the 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. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. When you have solar panels, you can be reassured that you can power your home no matter how expensive utilities get, or even if services are disrupted.
