Let us start with how home solar panels work at home.
These panels collect energy from the sun’s rays and trap it into solar cells, that are like rechargeable batteries. This energy is then converted into electricity that is used to power your homes electronics.
Note that there are some different versions of panels that can convert energy in different ways.
Example: Rays from the sun hit solar thermal panels that absorb this energy and convert it to heat, air, or water. These same rays can also hit parabolic mirrors that will convert the process to produce steam by hitting the water, but it is not really necessary to know all the scientific processes to be able to benefit from solar power.
Do-it-yourself home solar panels will be the wave of the future. It has been discovered that they are economical, easier to build than was believed, and with the rising costs of fossil fuels there is really no better time to build home solar panels.
In this article we are going to discuss the pros and cons of diy home solar panels so the average person can make an educated decision about do-it-yourself home solar panels.
Do-it-yourself home solar pannels could sound like something that is very expensive, complicated, or even futuristic, but with the diy home solar panel kits available on the market today, you soon discover how untrue this is.
The really good kits explain that solar panels are nothing but a means to gather the suns free unlimited energy and use it to operate regular household electronics, instead of using expensive depleting sources. Any excess free solar energy gathered can automatically be stored in rechargeable batteries, for use at a future time, and even sold to the electric company.
The materials used are easily located in local hardware stores and are generally very inexpensive. These diy home solar panel kits not only give you a purchasing checklist, but step-by-step written instructions with detailed photos, and professionally made videos to easily follow along.
To create the pros list of building these solar panels made for households we could make quite a lengthy list, but we will strive to keep this short with only mentioning the most easily recognized, or identified with items.
1) Solar energy is free and everlasting, unlike fossil fuels that are always on the rise in cost, and depleting as a resource.
2) Solar power is clean and good for the environment, and fossil fuels are the exact opposite.
3) Utility companies will actually pay you for your excess stored solar energy. Basically your meter runs backwards and you are paid for the amount the utility company uses. This is my favorite!
With these few pros listed, it looks like a bright future for solar energy as an alternative power source.
But there must be cons, so lets see what they are.
1) Solar panels take up large amounts of space and cannot, generally speaking, be used by tenants of apartment buildings.
That was all I had, and I must admit that I am a staunch believer in protecting the environment that my grandchildren must live in and if we take purposeful steps today, Perhaps they will enjoy watching their grandchildren become responsible adults.
With that said, I did not leave anything out to purposely deceive anyone. I truly want you to be able to make the most responsible decision you can for your family and our world.
