What to Consider When Installing Solar Panels
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. 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.
Mounting a solar panel on top of your home allows you to receive solar energy that can be used for many purposes, such as lighting and heating your home and giving you hot water. Your utility bills can be reduced or even eliminated by doing this.
While there is a cost involved to actually install solar panels, this can be offset by rebates or tax breaks that are available in many places. As this technology becomes more sophisticated, and more people are taking advantage of it, the costs are steadily declining. If you do the job of installing solar panels yourself, then you’ll be able to benefit from energy independence without even having a high up front cost. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. A good quality cell is necessary, you don’t want to make the mistake of getting a damaged cell group if you intend to have a higher energy production. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. 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. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
