Three Tips You Probably Didn’t Know About Solar Energy International
If you’re interested in building Solar Energy International panels, you must have read a fair bit regarding the setup and assembly of a complete solar power system. You may even have some hands-on experience building one from scratch. However I can almost guarantee you haven’t heard these three tips I am about to …
These tips can help you get better yield from the sunshine you are receiving and lower the cost of your project.
Tip #1: Cover With Anti-Reflective Glass
To generate more electricity, we need to have more sunlight penetrate the glass covering of the Solar Energy International panel rather than reflect it away. If you have put together a photo frame, you will know that there are two types of glass – normal, reflective glass and anti-reflective glass. Using anti-reflective glass helps more sunlight pass through the glass covering. When more radiation reaches the solar (photovoltaic) cells, more solar energy is converted.
Tip #2: Angle Your Solar Panel
Many hobbyists position their Solar Energy International panels parallel to the ground. As such leaves and debris tends to stay on the glass surface. This obviously blocks sunlight from reaching the solar cells. The simplest way to prevent this is to angle your solar panel during installation. Leaves and debris will then slide off the solar panel easily and precipitation can move to the side of the panel easily.
Tip #3: Join Broken Cells Together
Broken solar energy world cells are much cheaper than joined cells. You can dramatically reduce the cost of your project by joining broken photovoltaic cells together. With a little practice, you will get skillful at this…enough to wonder why aren’t more people doing this. In fact, there are many suppliers who will be happy to sell you broken solar cells at unbelievable prices. So take advantage of it.
If you take these three tips and implement them, your DIY solar panel will almost certainly be producing more power. The cost of your project will also become much more affordable.
