The Advantages of Using Solar Panel Systems
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. 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. 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.
Using a solar panel system means you will be self reliant for your power, so you won’t need to rely on the public power grid, which is an excellent benefit. You will at the very least be able to save on your electricity bills, and you may even be able to drastically reduce them. In addition to this you may also be able to get paid for any extra electricity you produce, as the government purchases it in some areas. However, even if this is not the case where you live, the savings you can make by installing a solar panel system are enormous.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach 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. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.
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. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. Plywood is a great option to use for the back, but you can use any type of wood you have available. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
