What to Consider When Installing Solar Panels
While we’re accustomed to many types of energy and technology, the only power source we couldn’t live without is the sun. Solar energy is one of the most practical and economical forms of energy when we know how to take advantage of it. By installing solar panels in your home, you can have a very practical and inexpensive form of energy that has many uses.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells. Making a solar panel at home means that you will need solar cells because a panel is simply a collection of solar cells mounted in a container of some sort. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like Ebay. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. These devices will prevent overcharging the batteries and ensuring the voltage levels are correct. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage.
There has never been a more ideal time to use solar energy, as heating and other utility costs soar and the state of the economy remains uncertain. If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
