Solar Panel Systems – The Benefits of Using Them
Energy from the limitless resource of the sun is the primary focus of those that develop solar energy products. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. 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? Well, read on to find out.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron.
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. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. Once the caulk has set, all you need to do is to drill a hole in the box for the wires but make sure to fill it with caulk after you have pushed the wires through to make sure that no moisture gets in. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. To make sure that the electricity does not flow backwards, these units are also necessary. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time.
Undoubtedly, solar panel systems are the future for energy production for the home due to their cost-effectiveness over the long term as well as the fact that they are good for the environment. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
