The Benefits of Solar Panel Systems
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. 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. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. If you have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. So, these batteries store the power produced by solar panels, which can then be converted into AC power with the help of a power inverter so the electricity can be used by appliances. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
It’s not hard to build solar panels yourself, as you could get all the materials you need at local stores or online. The most important component of your solar panel will be the solar cell, so you need to make sure you are buying good quality units. If you want to get the maximum amount of solar power, then, you need the best possible solar cells.
Eighty solar cells will get you about a hundred watts of electricity, though this number is only the average. Based on how much energy you need, you can use this figure to estimate how many solar panels to build and how large they’ll have to be.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. Solar power can free you from depending on external conditions for your power needs, so that no matter what happens you’ll have a cost free way to get energy.
