The Benefits of Solar Panel Systems
There are a variety of positives when it comes to solar panels, especially since they harness the natural elements on earth to provide us with green energy. An added bonus is the fact that they’re a renewable energy source, so it’s not a resource that will run out. If you’ve contemplated installing solar panels but you’re still undecided it would be a good idea to read on to find out more about this great source of energy.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. You can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place.
When researching solar panels, you have to take into consideration the area you are living in and the amount of sunlight you get. Depending on the amount of sunlight you get, you may be better off with a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector.
Concentrating solar collectors are panel that need to be positioned in such a way that they get the maximum possible amount of direct sunlight, meaning that they are the best option for areas that get a lot of sunlight year round. If, however, you only get a limited amount of sunlight, a non-concentrating solar collector would be a better choice, as these can also absorb reflected sunlight. You can always consult with an expert if you don’t know which type of solar panel would be appropriate for you.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. 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. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. Likewise, solar panels can also be connected to the heating system and you can then heat your home with the help of solar power.
