Solar Panel Systems – The Benefits of Using Them
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. Solar energy is “green” meaning it leaves no negative impact on the environment not to mention it is likely to be around for a couple billion more years, or so the experts say. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. You can actually make your own solar panel at home and it doesn’t really cost much, especially since then you will be able to enjoy the benefits of free electricity. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. Only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell because wood tends to expand and shrink with the weather. Using a single dot of caulk will allow the wood to shift without damaging your solar cells. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
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. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. This step can be replaced by an alternative action consisting of the use of a control charger
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
