How Solar Panels Operate To Help You
Solar power is an amazing form of clean energy because it is relatively inexpensive and will never run out. The sun is estimated by scientists last for billions of years, clearly showing this energy source is trustworthy. One of the key reasons that solar panels are becoming more popular is that discounts make it more affordable for those that want to try it out. Exactly how do solar panels generate electricity? The following paragraphs will provide this explanation.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. Many places will offer great deals on these types of batteries along with coupons at your local store. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. This means you should get a true sine wave or modified energy converter. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. It is a little more expensive than the modified sine wave, but it’s worth paying a little extra in the long run.
With the DIY method of solar panel creation your will need to create a box for the solar cells to rest in groups within when the desired outcome is a solar panel. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
