It’s Not Difficult to Install Solar Panels
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. Today, we’re learning more sophisticated ways to benefit from the sun; solar energy is often the cheapest way to provide energy for our homes. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. 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. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. Caulk should be used 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. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. Most people probably think it’s quite difficult to get hold of these but they can easily be found on eBay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. This way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete.
Solar panels give you a cheap power alternative that can serve you well in difficult economic times and ever rising utility costs. When you have solar panels, you can be reassured that you can power your home no matter how expensive utilities get, or even if services are disrupted.
