The Reasons That Solar Panels Are Important
Solar panels offer many benefits because they create clean energy by using the natural elements of our planet. Additionally, they’re a source of energy that will never run out, which is called a renewable energy source. You may have been wondering whether or not you should get solar panels installed, in which case I recommend you continue to read to learn more about this wonderful energy source.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. 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. It may surprise you to find that many of the products you already have in your home can be used to create a simple solar panel design, for instance, you probably own a saw, drill, screwdriver and a wooden container of some sort. In order for you to attach the solar cells and put the box together it may be necessary to have some wood glue and silicone caulk on hand. A solar panel is connected to batteries and most of them use the regular 12 volt batteries that are used in cars. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. You can save hundreds of dollars by finding low-cost or free batteries in your area. Storing electricity is only part of the process; you must convert this electricity into AC to be used at home or in your garage. This means you should get a true sine wave or modified energy converter. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
