Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
To cut cost, more and more people are turning to solar energy. The expense of the solar panels would be offset by the savings on your electricity bill. Building your own solar panels for half the price is good news. This article has some of the most important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. Many places will offer great deals on these types of batteries along with coupons at your local store. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. However, the best one is the one that creates the exact same type of electricity that comes out of the wall socket and that is the true sine wave. It is a little more expensive than the modified sine wave, but it’s worth paying a little extra in the long run.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? In this day and age, you can feel safer knowing that your energy needs don’t depend on things like oil, gas or coal being affordable or even available at all.
