Install Solar Panels to Cut Costs
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. After the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. This step can be replaced by an alternative action consisting of the use of a control charger Your entire house, if you have enough solar panels, can actually be powered if positioned and used in the proper way. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
