Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. By installing solar panels in your home, you can have a very practical and inexpensive form of energy that has many uses.
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. This can allow you to cut back on many of your bills such as electricity, gas or oil.
Depending on where you live, you can probably get a rebate or tax break when you install solar panels. Fortunately, as they get more popular and the technology advances, it’s getting cheaper all the time to install solar panels. Considering that you can also install solar panels yourself, you can save even more money and then be able to enjoy an energy source no one can control or take away from you as long as the sun is shining.
Before you install any solar panels, you should do some research, as the kind you get should be based on how much sunlight your area gets. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
If you get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. If, however, you only get a limited amount of sunlight, a non-concentrating solar collector would be a better choice, as these can also absorb reflected sunlight. You can always consult with an expert if you don’t know which type of solar panel would be appropriate for you.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for your solar panels. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder.
As you can see, building a solar panel requires a bit of skill with tools but it is something anyone can do. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
