To build your own solar panel read this article.
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. With easy to install solar panels, it’s possible to get heat and electricity you can use for all of your power requirements.
All you have to do is mount a solar panel on the roof of your home to enjoy the benefits of free energy, for powering electrical appliances, lighting your home and even heating water. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
Most areas now offer tax incentives to help make it more affordable to install solar panels in your home. Fortunately, as they get more popular and the technology advances, it’s getting cheaper all the time to install solar panels. One of the best things about solar panels is that you can make them even more economical by installing them yourself, which will then free you from being dependent on the power companies. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. 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 still need a quality cell group that’s not damaged in order to maximize your energy output. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
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. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
