The Upside of Using Solar Panels
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. 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.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. 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. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. A solar panel is connected to batteries and most of them use the regular 12 volt batteries that are used in cars. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. This electricity needs to be converted, so you will need to have a power inverter to convert the energy to be used around your house. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. 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. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with 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 type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. This way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder.
Undoubtedly, solar panel systems are the future for energy production for the home due to their cost-effectiveness over the long term as well as the fact that they are good for the environment. Therefore getting them installed sooner rather than later will enable you to save more money.
