Building your own solar panel can be easy.
Solar panels offer many benefits because they create clean energy by using the natural elements of our planet. An added bonus is the fact that they’re a renewable energy source, so it’s not a resource that will run out. Maybe you’ve thought about getting solar panels, but you’re unsure if they’re worth it. If so, I recommend reading on to learn more about this fantastic source of energy.
One of the biggest benefits of installing solar panels is that you will be producing your own energy and will no longer need to rely on the public electric grid. This means that you can greatly cut down your electricity bills and maybe even slash them dramatically. In fact, you can also get paid because in many areas the government will buy any extra energy you produce. But even if this scheme doesn’t happen where you live, you will still save a lot of money with solar panels. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. Most people probably think it’s quite difficult to get hold of these but they can easily be found on eBay. However, don’t make the mistake of buying cells simply because they are cheap. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
With the DIY method of solar panel creation your will need to create a box for the solar cells to rest in groups within when the desired outcome is a solar panel. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells. Do it yourself skills are necessary as with any project but overall this is a simple task to tackle for many of us. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
