Make Your Home Energy Efficient With Solar Panels
The reason that solar panels is so popular today is that the sun is an endless source of energy that we can rely upon. This energy supply is really limitless and will continue on for many lifetimes. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. But how exactly do solar panels work? The following will reveal this mystery to you.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. You can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
If you want to install solar panels, you first have to calculate how many hours of sunlight you get on average. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.
If you live in an area that gets quite a bit of sunlight throughout the year, you should get a concentrating solar collector, which can absorb a great deal of direct sunlight. Non-concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct 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. To prevent damaging any or all of your batteries over time, using these controllers is very important. Your entire house, if you have enough solar panels, can actually be powered if positioned and used in the proper way. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
