Solar Panel Systems – The Benefits of Using Them
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. Solar energy is one of the most practical and economical forms of energy when we know how to take advantage of it. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
A major worry for many households is the cost of the solar panels which can and probably has dissuaded many from making the switch. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? When you have solar panels, you can be reassured that you can power your home no matter how expensive utilities get, or even if services are disrupted.
