Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. By installing solar panels in your home, you can have a very practical and inexpensive form of energy that has many uses.
The solar panel itself is essentially a container that holds solar cells. These solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. Most people probably think it’s quite difficult to get hold of these but they can easily be found on eBay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. You may be surprised to find out that these cells aren’t as expensive as you might have thought, in fact only about $2 each.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
