Make Your Home Energy Efficient With Solar Panels
Before electricity and central heating, the sun was the only source of energy for the earth and this was enough to allow human civilization to flourish. 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.
If you place a solar panel on your home’s roof, you instantly have a powerful source of energy that can provide heat and light for everything in your home. Once these panels are installed, this energy won’t cost you anything, so you can save a lot on utility costs.
And you needn’t worry about the cost of installing a solar panel system because most areas offer people significant incentives to put up these panels in the form of tax breaks or rebates. As this technology becomes more sophisticated, and more people are taking advantage of it, the costs are steadily declining. Once you have solar panels, you’ll never be dependent on centralized power companies again; what’s even better is that you can install them yourself without too much difficulty.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach 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. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. Using a single dot of caulk will allow the wood to shift without damaging your solar cells. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.
If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. The most important component of your solar panel will be the solar cell, so you need to make sure you are buying good quality units. The better the quality, the more power they can produce.
It takes about 80 solar cells to generate 100 watts of electricity, so you have to consider this ratio when figuring out your needs. Based on how much energy you need, you can use this figure to estimate how many solar panels to build and how large they’ll have to be. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. If you are serious about saving money, this is a project easy enough for even the novice to complete once the materials are rounded up and the patience to succeed is wrangled into production.
