Understanding How Solar Panels Work
More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
You can run your lamps, television, computers and even get hot water from the power generated by a solar panel on the roof of your home. This can allow you to cut back on many of your bills such as electricity, gas or oil.
Depending on where you live, you can probably get a rebate or tax break when you install solar panels. Like many other forms of technology, solar panels are getting more affordable as they get ever more advanced and more people install them. If you do the job of installing solar panels yourself, then you’ll be able to benefit from energy independence without even having a high up front cost. Making a solar panel at home means that you will need solar cells because a panel is simply a collection of solar cells mounted in a container of some sort. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them on Ebay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. 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.
Because solar panel systems are good for the environment and cost-effective they will most certainly be the future of energy production in the home. So, you can save more money by installing them sooner rather than later.
