You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our 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.
Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. The thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. However, you do need to be handy with a soldering iron and a saw, so if you aren’t really into DIY, maybe you should ask a friend who is for help. All you need to do this really is a 12 V battery for storage and a solar panel to create electricity. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. By spending a few extra dollars on the right inverter, you will be able to use your electricity in your home.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
