The Benefits of Solar Panel Systems
Solar panels provide us with green energy because they use natural elements of the earth, which is why there are many benefits. In addition to this, they are a renewable energy source (which means it’s a resource that’ll never run out) which is an added bonus. So if you have been pondering over whether to install solar panels or not you should continue reading this article to find out more.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
If you want to install solar panels, you first have to calculate how many hours of sunlight you get on average. This is because there are two types of solar panels, namely concentrating solar collectors and non-concentrating collectors.
If you receive lots of sunlight most of the year, you should get a solar panel that can efficiently absorb direct sunlight, which would be a concentrating solar collector. Not everyone lives in a place that gets a lot of direct sunlight, though, and for anyone in this category a non-concentrating solar collector, which can absorb sunlight from reflection as well as directly, is the perfect choice. If you have any doubt about which type would work best for you home, you should ask someone with experience in this field.
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. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. You can also heat your home using the electricity from the solar panels which can save you money every winter.
