Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. Solar energy is “green” meaning it leaves no negative impact on the environment not to mention it is likely to be around for a couple billion more years, or so the experts say. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. 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. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires. A solar panel is connected to batteries and most of them use the regular 12 volt batteries that are used in cars. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. You can save hundreds of dollars by finding low-cost or free batteries in your area. So, these batteries store the power produced by solar panels, which can then be converted into AC power with the help of a power inverter so the electricity can be used by appliances. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
The cost of installing a solar panel system plays on many people’s minds, which is why they’ve not taken action yet. They fear that the expense will be too high compared to the savings they can make on their electric bill. But you can cut the costs by simply making your very own solar panels. You can save around half the money by doing this, and most of the things you need are for sale on the internet, which includes solar cells that are on sites like eBay. And if you do some research, there are a few areas that offer special rebates and incentives for installing solar panels, which is useful. This is because the government wants as many people to switch over to clean energy sources and to further encourage this they offer builders excellent tax breaks if the homes they put up have solar panel systems. 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.
