Solar Panels – Why And How They Function
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. However, some are worried that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, even though it is an expense that would quickly be offset by savings made on the electricity bill. The good news is that you can actually build your own solar panels for half the price. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging 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. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
A component, the charge controller, must be placed between the solar panel and the battery for the following reasons. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage. Solar panels are generally mounted on the roofs of homes or buildings and can be used to power anything from a single appliance to your entire home. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
