Read this article to learn 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.
One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron. 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. 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. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for your solar panels. Containers can be made out of a wide range of materials but the one that most people prefer is wood because it is easier to work with. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. You will then need to have some sort of stabilization inside the box (usually wood as well) and a top made of plexiglass to cover the container. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. 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.
