How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. 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. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. It may surprise you to find that many of the products you already have in your home can be used to create a simple solar panel design, for instance, you probably own a saw, drill, screwdriver and a wooden container of some sort. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. Many places will offer great deals on these types of batteries along with coupons at your local store. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. 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.
You may want to consider building and installing solar panels yourself; this is a fairly simple project, and the materials you’d need are quite easy to find. When building solar panels, you have to start with solar cells that are powerful enough for your needs. By using higher quality solar cells, you’ll be able to generate more power.
For every 100 watts of electricity you require, you’ll need about 80 solar cells. Considering this you can now determine how large to make your solar panels and how many of them you need to power your home.
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? 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.
