The Positive Points About Solar Panel Systems
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. 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. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
The solar panel itself is essentially a container that holds solar cells. 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. It takes a great number of solar cells to create a solar panel that can generate enough electricity that is meaningful. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. 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. 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. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage. Your entire house, if you have enough solar panels, can actually be powered if positioned and used in the proper way. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
