The Reasons That Solar Panels Are Important

The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? Today, we’re learning more sophisticated ways to benefit from the sun; solar energy is often the cheapest way to provide energy for our homes. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.

First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. The thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels.

The container for your solar panel is simply a box with a Plexiglas front, which will allow sunlight to flow in but will ensure that the cells are protected. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. Using a single dot of caulk will allow the wood to shift without damaging your solar cells. After the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.

It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. 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. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. This way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. If you are serious about saving money, this is a project easy enough for even the novice to complete once the materials are rounded up and the patience to succeed is wrangled into production.
