Understanding How Solar Panels Work
The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
When researching solar panels, you have to take into consideration the area you are living in and the amount of sunlight you get. The two main varieties of solar panels are concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors; the best kind for you depends on where you live.
If you receive lots of sunlight most of the year, you should get a solar panel that can efficiently absorb direct sunlight, which would be a concentrating solar collector. If, however, you only get a limited amount of sunlight, a non-concentrating solar collector would be a better choice, as these can also absorb reflected sunlight. If you still aren’t sure what type is best for you, you always have the option of consulting a professional.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. These devices will prevent overcharging the batteries and ensuring the voltage levels are correct. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged.
There has never been a more ideal time to use solar energy, as heating and other utility costs soar and the state of the economy remains uncertain. If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
