The Benefits of Solar Panel Systems
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. Solar energy is one of the most practical and economical forms of energy when we know how to take advantage of it. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. 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. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells.
Your climate and how much sunlight you receive are important factors to consider before getting solar panels. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.
Since concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb lots of sunlight directly, they are the best choice if you live somewhere that gets quite a bit of sunshine all year. Not everyone lives in a place that gets a lot of direct sunlight, though, and for anyone in this category a non-concentrating solar collector, which can absorb sunlight from reflection as well as directly, is the perfect choice. There are many people or companies who could tell you, based on your location, which type of solar panel is best for you; even if you want to install them yourself, you could call someone to get this information.
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. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
