How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. The good news is that you can actually build your own solar panels for half the price. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
If you place a solar panel on your home’s roof, you instantly have a powerful source of energy that can provide heat and light for everything in your home. Once these panels are installed, this energy won’t cost you anything, so you can save a lot on utility costs.
While there is a cost involved to actually install solar panels, this can be offset by rebates or tax breaks that are available in many places. Additionally, the increase in popularity of solar panels and advancements in technology have led to these systems becoming more affordable. If you do the job of installing solar panels yourself, then you’ll be able to benefit from energy independence without even having a high up front cost. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. A good quality cell is necessary, you don’t want to make the mistake of getting a damaged cell group if you intend to have a higher energy production. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. 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. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
