How Solar Panels Operate To Help You
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type 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 have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. Storing electricity is only part of the process; you must convert this electricity into AC to be used at home or in your garage. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. More than likely, you will want to use your appliances at home which requires purchasing a true sine wave inverter to convert electricity. Only a true sine wave inverter, not a modified sine wave device, will convert the energy properly, but at a higher price.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used. Do it yourself skills are necessary as with any project but overall this is a simple task to tackle for many of us. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
