Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
Due to its inexpensive cost of development, and free energy from the sun, solar power is looking like a great energy alternative. The sun is estimated by scientists last for billions of years, clearly showing this energy source is trustworthy. One of the key reasons that solar panels are becoming more popular is that discounts make it more affordable for those that want to try it out. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? The following will reveal this mystery to you.
Many people are worried about the cost of solar panels, which is why they haven’t yet made the switch from standard electricity providers to this form of clean 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.
If you want to install solar panels, you first have to calculate how many hours of sunlight you get on average. This is because there are two types of solar panels, namely concentrating solar collectors and non-concentrating collectors.
If you get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. Non-concentrating solar collectors, on the other hand, don’t require as much direct sunlight to absorb energy, so this is a better choice if you live in a less sunny region. There are many people or companies who could tell you, based on your location, which type of solar panel is best for you; even if you want to install them yourself, you could call someone to get this information.
In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
