You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. 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.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. Don’t overlook the likelihood of needing wood glue or other adhesives such as silicone caulk available to aide in box assembly and solar panel attachment.
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. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. Using a single dot of caulk will allow the wood to shift without damaging your solar cells. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.
The cost of installing a solar panel system plays on many people’s minds, which is why they’ve not taken action yet. They fear that the expense will be too high compared to the savings they can make on their electric bill. But you can cut the costs by simply making your very own solar panels. You can actually cut your costs down by 50%, and in addition to this you’ll be able to find nearly everything you require on the web, for example solar cells can be found on eBay. It’s worth doing a bit of research to find whether or not where you live has any rebates or incentives for installing a solar panel system. This is because the government wants as many people to switch over to clean energy sources and to further encourage this they offer builders excellent tax breaks if the homes they put up have solar panel systems.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
