Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
A major worry for many households is the cost of the solar panels which can and probably has dissuaded many from 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 design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells.
Solar panels will not only help you to reduce your costs, but it’s good for the environment. Most of the electricity being produced today is done through processes that have a significantly negative impact on the environment, through waste and pollution. On the other hand, the production of solar power has no by-products or any negative impact on the environment whatsoever. And because it uses the sunlight to create energy it’s renewable, meaning it cannot become depleted. Even though the positive effects of clean energy on the environment might not be currently visible, the more they are used the better the environment will do. The future generations will be able to see the long-term effects, which will be incredible. But if we keep polluting how we are now, our grandchildren won’t be able to see trees outside, they’ll be in museums because we’re doing a good job of destroying our planet.
It’s not hard to build solar panels yourself, as you could get all the materials you need at local stores or online. The solar cells you buy are the central element of your solar panels, so this is the first thing to consider. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.
It takes about 80 solar cells to generate 100 watts of electricity, so you have to consider this ratio when figuring out your needs. The size of your solar panels and how many of them you’ll need will depend on how much power you want to get out of them. Do it yourself skills are necessary as with any project but overall this is a simple task to tackle for many of us. If you are serious about saving money, this is a project easy enough for even the novice to complete once the materials are rounded up and the patience to succeed is wrangled into production.
