Understanding How Solar Panels Work
Solar panels offer many benefits because they create clean energy by using the natural elements of our planet. Additionally, they’re a source of energy that will never run out, which is called a renewable energy source. If you’ve contemplated installing solar panels but you’re still undecided it would be a good idea to read on to find out more about this great source of energy.
Mounting a solar panel on top of your home allows you to receive solar energy that can be used for many purposes, such as lighting and heating your home and giving you hot water. Your utility bills can be reduced or even eliminated by doing this.
While there is a cost involved to actually install solar panels, this can be offset by rebates or tax breaks that are available in many places. Fortunately, as they get more popular and the technology advances, it’s getting cheaper all the time to install solar panels. If you do the job of installing solar panels yourself, then you’ll be able to benefit from energy independence without even having a high up front cost.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
