The Upside of Using Solar Panels
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. 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. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. 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. Though more expensive, only the true sine wave device can create genuine AC electricity.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. When you have solar panels, you can be reassured that you can power your home no matter how expensive utilities get, or even if services are disrupted.
