The Positive Points About Solar Panel Systems
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.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells.
If you want to install solar panels, you first have to calculate how many hours of sunlight you get on average. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
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 you don’t get that much sun, however, you can still benefit from solar power with a non-concentrating solar collector, which can operate from reflected as well as direct sunlight. If you have any doubt about which type would work best for you home, you should ask someone with experience in this field.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with 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.
