The Upside of Using Solar Panels
Energy from the limitless resource of the sun is the primary focus of those that develop solar energy products. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. Low cost energy can definitely originate from solar panels, especially if you can work with companies that offer rebates and rewards prior to installation. 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. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like 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. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. You may be surprised to find out that these cells aren’t as expensive as you might have thought, in fact only about $2 each.
A component, the charge controller, must be placed between the solar panel and the battery for the following reasons. These devices will prevent overcharging the batteries and ensuring the voltage levels are correct. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. To prevent damaging any or all of your batteries over time, using these controllers is very important. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. You can also heat your home using the electricity from the solar panels which can save you money every winter.
