Why Solar Panels -
this dissertation, we answer the question, ‘why solar
has an abundant amount of energy. We dig out coal for
energy, we install turbines on fast flowing rivers to generate
electricity, we mine out uranium to produce energy through
radioactivity and there are so many other sources that we can
utilize. Another energy source that we have recently learnt to
tap into is the sun. Yes, the sun too is a large store of
energy showering terawatts of power every single day onto
planet Earth. Sadly we haven’t made any practical use of it for
all the centuries that have gone by. But hey, remember the
saying ‘better late than never’?
to the question of why solar panels, it is these solar panels
that we use to convert the radiation from the sun into
electricity. Sure does seem magical, doesn’t it?
hits the surface of these panels, it sends a current through
the attached wires. These wires bring the current to an
inverter which converts alternating current into direct current
so that our home appliances can make use of it. This technical
bit was for those inquisitive minds that wanted to know how the
‘magical’ process works.
Back to the
topic of why solar panels, they generate free electricity from
the sun, helping us save tons of cash year after year. It is
common for households that make use of solar panels to slash up
to 80 percent of their electricity bills. The twenty percent
they pay is for using electricity at night as you might already
know that solar panels do not work at night. Even though this
is the case, many people have successfully managed to live
completely off grid! How? They use batteries to store energy
that is generated during the day to be used at night. Well, the
goodness of solar panels just doesn’t stop here. You can
actually go ahead and sell the excess electricity back to your
power company and they will happily pay you for it!
reason as to why solar panels should be used is that they
produce electricity without polluting our environment. A large
number of power stations burn coal to generate electricity.
With global warming gaining serious momentum, it is high time
that we did something about it. Not only should you live on
solar panels, but you should also advice your friends and
family to do the same. In order to begin a wide spread effort
to save the planet, we need to start from the grass root level.
Get solar panels for yourself first and then encourage others
to also generate their own electricity using this very clean
When you go
out to the market to buy solar panels, their cost is sure deter
anyone from making the shift to generating their own
electricity. Since solar panels are still a new concept to the
masses, it is priced heavily. Besides, the ‘big guys’ also
encourage high pricing so that they don’t lose their profits
from electricity companies don’t shrink. Solar panels are
pretty much a one time investment; once you have them
installed, you kiss your electricity bills goodbye for the next
10 to 15 years!
In order to
escape the highly priced solar panels readily available, a
smart alternative would be to build your own solar panels. And
you certainly don’t have to be Einstein to do so!
I have managed to find some
easy-to-read, step by step, practical guides to help you put
together your own solar panels. In doing so, you will save up
to 65% as compared to buying read made ones. Check out the
following guides some users have reviewed;
These guides are especially
beneficial to all the technologically challenged people reading
this article. With clearly drawn pictures to aid your
understanding, you are sure to find it very easy to build your
own solar panels. Of course, you shouldn’t limit yourself to my
suggestions. Look up the internet for the plethora of
information already available. Have fun!
