How to Build Your Own Solar Panel
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the 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.
A major worry for many households is the cost of the solar panels which can and probably has dissuaded many from making the switch. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. 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. Don’t overlook the likelihood of needing wood glue or other adhesives such as silicone caulk available to aide in box assembly and solar panel attachment. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. 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. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
Everything required to build solar panels can be found on the internet or at a home improvement store, so you may want to think about doing it yourself. If you want your solar panels to give you the maximum efficiency, you have to start out with good quality solar cells. The better the quality, the more power they can produce.
For every 100 watts of electricity you require, you’ll need about 80 solar cells. Based on how much energy you need, you can use this figure to estimate how many solar panels to build and how large they’ll have to be.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. When you have solar panels, you can be reassured that you can power your home no matter how expensive utilities get, or even if services are disrupted.
