How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
In an effort to cut energy costs, more and more people are using solar energy. The expense of the solar panels would be offset by the savings on your electricity bill. It will cost you about half the price to build your own solar panels. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. You can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type 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. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
A component, the charge controller, must be placed between the solar panel and the battery for the following reasons. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used. You must place solar panels on top of your building or home so that they can receive sunlight and power your home at the same time. You can also heat your home using the electricity from the solar panels which can save you money every winter.
