The Upside of Using Solar Panels
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. 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.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. 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.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
A component, the charge controller, must be placed between the solar panel and the battery for the following reasons. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
