What to Consider When Installing Solar Panels
Solar panels have many advantages, especially since they provide clean energy by harnessing the natural elements of the planet. 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. If you’ve contemplated installing solar panels but you’re still undecided it would be a good idea to read on to find out more about this great source of energy.
One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. The thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. You may be surprised to find out that these cells aren’t as expensive as you might have thought, in fact only about $2 each.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. Likewise, solar panels can also be connected to the heating system and you can then heat your home with the help of solar power.
