We depend on the sun to heat our planet, but there are many ways this energy can be used daily and homeowners in Cape Town can take advantage of it with the help of solar geysers and panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
April 4, 2014 (Newswire) - Undoubtedly, solar energy and geysers in Cape Town is the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a "green" energy source that won't have a negative impact on our environment. Additionally, the fact that it's free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. However, the good news is that it probably isn't as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You may want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar geyser and panel for your Cape Town home really isn't that hard after all. This is a task that only requires patience, materials and perseverance to succeed in making your own solar panel to save energy.
