Understanding How Solar Panels Work
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. 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.
Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. These solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. One solar cell can generate about 0.5 volts of power, which is why a solar panel is made up of numerous solar cells. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels.
When researching solar panels, you have to take into consideration the area you are living in and the amount of sunlight you get. Depending on the amount of sunlight you get, you may be better off with a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector.
Concentrating solar collectors are panel that need to be positioned in such a way that they get the maximum possible amount of direct sunlight, meaning that they are the best option for areas that get a lot of sunlight year round. If you don’t get that much sun, however, you can still benefit from solar power with a non-concentrating solar collector, which can operate from reflected as well as direct sunlight. You can always consult with an expert if you don’t know which type of solar panel would be appropriate for you.
Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with your solar panels. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. You’ll need to have a hole in the box that will make it possible for you to get the wires pulled outside the box too. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. In this day and age, you can feel safer knowing that your energy needs don’t depend on things like oil, gas or coal being affordable or even available at all.
