DIY Home Solar Panels

I think I will start with a discussion on how home solar panels work.

Rays from the sun hit solar thermal panels that absorb this energy and convert it to heat, air, or water. The rays can also hit parabolic mirrors which will produce steam by hitting the water

These panels are made to collect energy from the sun's rays and trap them into solar cells, like rechargeable batteries, and this then becomes electricity that is used to power your homes electronics. But it is not really necessary to know all of the scientific jargon to be able to benefit from do-it-yourself 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.

This could sound like something that is very complicated, futuristic, or expensive, but with the DIY home solar kits available on the market today, you soon realize how untrue this would be.

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 is automatically stored in cells, like rechargeable batteries, for use at a future time.

The materials used are easily located in local hardware stores and are generally very inexpensive. These diy home solar power kits not only give you a purchasing checklist, but step-by-step written instructions with very detailed photos, and professionally shot 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 power is clean and good for the environment, and fossil fuels are the exact opposite.
2) Solar energy is free and everlasting, unlike fossil fuels that are always on the rise in cost, and depleting as a resource.
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.
I believe do-it-yourself home solar panels are the wave of the future. We have discovered 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.

With these few pros listed, it looks like a bright future for solar energy as an alternative power source.

But there must be some cons, right? So lets see what they are …

1) Solar panels can 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 everyone to be able to make the most responsible decision they can for their family, and our world.
