Understanding How Solar Panels Work
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
If you place a solar panel on your home’s roof, you instantly have a powerful source of energy that can provide heat and light for everything in your home. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
Even though there’s an initial cost when you install solar panels in your home, there are a variety of rebates and tax incentives available that make it worthwhile to do this. Like many other forms of technology, solar panels are getting more affordable as they get ever more advanced and more people install them. Once you have solar panels, you’ll never be dependent on centralized power companies again; what’s even better is that you can install them yourself without too much difficulty.
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. Only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell because wood tends to expand and shrink with the weather. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. After the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
You may want to consider building and installing solar panels yourself; this is a fairly simple project, and the materials you’d need are quite easy to find. The power of the solar cells you use will be the main factor that determines how much energy you get from your solar panels. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.
On average, 80 solar cells will produce about 100 watts of electricity. This gives you a rough idea of how powerful your solar panels need to be and how many of them you’ll need. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
