The Positive Points About Solar Panel Systems
There are a variety of positives when it comes to solar panels, especially since they harness the natural elements on earth to provide us with green energy. An added bonus is the fact that they’re a renewable energy source, so it’s not a resource that will run out. So, if you have been wondering whether or not installing solar panels is worth it, read on to learn more about this amazing energy source.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. 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. Just because you find them cheap doesn’t always mean you should invest in them. You still need a quality cell group that’s not damaged in order to maximize your energy output. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.
Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder 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. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead.
There has never been a more ideal time to use solar energy, as heating and other utility costs soar and the state of the economy remains uncertain. 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.
