Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. 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.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. For wiring made easy, try to find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
The plexiglass is for protection of your cells. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
