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. The sun is estimated by scientists last for billions of years, clearly showing this energy source is trustworthy. With the help of solar panels, everyone can now enjoy the benefits of this cheap form of energy, especially since most areas provide tax incentives and rebates to people who switch to clean energy. But how exactly do solar panels work? Well, read on to find out.
All you have to do is mount a solar panel on the roof of your home to enjoy the benefits of free energy, for powering electrical appliances, lighting your home and even heating water. Your utility bills can be reduced or even eliminated by doing this.
Most areas now offer tax incentives to help make it more affordable to install solar panels in your home. Solar panels are also getting less expensive as more people use them and the systems are getting more efficient. If you really want to enjoy the many benefits of solar energy at an affordable price, you should consider installing them yourself. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. A plain old lead acid battery, which is very affordable, is what you’ll need. Many places will offer great deals on these types of batteries along with coupons at your local store. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Only a true sine wave inverter, not a modified sine wave device, will convert the energy properly, but at a higher price.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for your solar panels. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. It is then necessary to connect the cells to one another via soldering.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
