The Positive Points About Solar Panel Systems
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. 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. 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.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time.
Without a doubt, solar panels are definitely the future for producing energy in the home, not just because they’re cost-effective but they’re also good for the environment. So by installing them sooner rather than later you can save more money on your electricity bills.
