Read this article to learn how to build your own solar panel.
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. 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.
One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. These solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. Solar panels can actually be made at home; many people make them in an attempt to reduce or eliminate their electrical bill. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires.
You’ll not only benefit from saving money, but it’s also good for the environment. Most of the electricity being produced today is done through processes that have a significantly negative impact on the environment, through waste and pollution. But when it comes to solar power there are no by-products or pollutants that will harm the environment. Plus, since it uses sunlight to make electricity, it is a renewable energy source, in other words it isn’t a resource that can be depleted, like oil. Even though the positive effects of clean energy on the environment might not be currently visible, the more they are used the better the environment will do. The effects in the long-term will be incredible and your children and grandchildren will feel the effects. At the current rate we’re going at, the future generations won’t see much of the wonderful environment we have today because we’re doing such a good job of killing it off.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. It is an essential component because it ensures that the voltage running into the battery is at the right level and it also ensures that the batteries don’t overcharge. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
