PV solar panels produce your electricity using something called the photoelectric effect. The photoelectric effect was first noted back in 1839 by a French physicist named Edmund Bequerel. He discovered that certain materials would produce a small electric current when you exposed them to light. This is the principle used by PV solar panels. The first practical applications of PV solar panels were on space craft in the 1960s. As time went on, the technology improved and the panels became smaller and cheaper. Today solar panels are affordable and efficient enough for domestic use.
Maintenance – This is key to provide a long lasting system. Maintenance is easy all it consists of is wiping of dust and dirt that collects on the panel.
1) Wholesale el paso solar will not work in cloudy places! UV light is all that is needed and even cloudy places have excelled when it comes to solar! Germany is currently the solar power capital of the entire world and they rank low when it comes to sunny days.
You will need to add more solar cells to your panels to get extra electricity. The more you have the more you can produce. For most homes around 4-8 kW is enough for the basic functioning. If you have excess energy, you may be able to sell it back to the energy company for profit. This does depend on whether this scheme runs in your location.
Imagine that you are looking at three solar panels lying next to each other on the ground. On the top of each panel is a positive terminal. On the bottom of each panel is a negative terminal. You are going to wire these panels together using the terminals. You have two options. Option one is to run wires along the top, connecting each positive terminal together and to run wires along the bottom, connecting each negative terminal together. This is a parallel solar installation. What happens when you wire your panels in this fashion?
Most DIY solar panel makers say that once they have learned how to make a homemade solar panel they are compelled to make more and more of them until their entire homes are powered by the sun. Some of the devices you can power from the sun include computers, TVs, stoves and ovens, cell phones, reading lamps and CD players.
Whole solar panels will almost always give you more power than broken or chipped ones, piece by piece. Five whole solar panels even at 9×9 inches will give you more power generation capability than five chipped pieces.
For simple reference in regards to the difference between parallel and series wiring, just remember that parallel wiring = more amps, and series wiring = more volts. With a sound understanding of the differences between parallel and series solar installations, you are now ready to design and build your own solar panel system.
