Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
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. 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.
One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. However, you do need to be handy with a soldering iron and a saw, so if you aren’t really into DIY, maybe you should ask a friend who is for help.
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. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.
If you live in an area that gets quite a bit of sunlight throughout the year, you should get a concentrating solar collector, which can absorb a great deal 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. If you still aren’t sure what type is best for you, you always have the option of consulting a professional.
Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder a diode first. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. The latter would mean a waste of power and it can happen during the night. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. So, you can soon have your own solar panel up and running and you might even end up powering your entire home with sunlight.
