Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. These solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. 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.
The container for your solar panel is simply a box with a Plexiglas front, which will allow sunlight to flow in but will ensure that the cells are protected. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. These devices will prevent overcharging the batteries and ensuring the voltage levels are correct. To make sure that the electricity does not flow backwards, these units are also necessary. To prevent damaging any or all of your batteries over time, using these controllers is very important.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
