Understanding How Solar Panels Work
The reason that solar panels is so popular today is that the sun is an endless source of energy that we can rely upon. The sun is estimated by scientists last for billions of years, clearly showing this energy source is trustworthy. Several companies are now offering incentives that slash the costs of solar panels allowing most people to benefit from this cheap energy source. So how do solar panels really work? The following will reveal this mystery to you.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. Making a solar panel at home means that you will need solar cells because a panel is simply a collection of solar cells mounted in a container of some sort. 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. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage. Solar panels are generally mounted on the roofs of homes or buildings and can be used to power anything from a single appliance to your entire home. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
