You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. 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. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like Ebay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. 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. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. This way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. 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.
