How to Build Your Own Solar Panel

Before electricity and central heating, the sun was the only source of energy for the earth and this was enough to allow human civilization to flourish. When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.

Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. 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.

Before you install any solar panels, you should do some research, as the kind you get should be based on how much sunlight your area gets. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.

If you get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. Non-concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct sunlight. There are many people or companies who could tell you, based on your location, which type of solar panel is best for you; even if you want to install them yourself, you could call someone to get this information.

Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. To make sure that the electricity does not flow backwards, these units are also necessary. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
