The Benefits of Solar Panel Systems
Solar power is an amazing form of clean energy because it is relatively inexpensive and will never run out. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. Exactly how do solar panels generate electricity? By the end of this article, you will understand.
All you have to do is mount a solar panel on the roof of your home to enjoy the benefits of free energy, for powering electrical appliances, lighting your home and even heating water. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
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. 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.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of 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. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. 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. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete.
Without a doubt, solar panels are definitely the future for producing energy in the home, not just because they’re cost-effective but they’re also good for the environment. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
