The Upside of Using Solar Panels

In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. 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. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.

If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. A solar panel is connected to batteries and most of them use the regular 12 volt batteries that are used in cars. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. You can save hundreds of dollars by finding low-cost or free batteries in your area. This electricity needs to be converted, so you will need to have a power inverter to convert the energy to be used around your house. You need to get one of the following power inverters which includes modified and true sine wave devices. A true sine wave inverter is the only device that will give you the same AC electricity that comes out of your sockets. Only a true sine wave inverter, not a modified sine wave device, will convert the energy properly, but at a higher price.

You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. Likewise, solar panels can also be connected to the heating system and you can then heat your home with the help of solar power.
