It is easy to build your own solar panel.
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. Solar energy is “green” meaning it leaves no negative impact on the environment not to mention it is likely to be around for a couple billion more years, or so the experts say. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. It takes a great number of solar cells to create a solar panel that can generate enough electricity that is meaningful. Solar panels can actually be made at home; many people make them in an attempt to reduce or eliminate their electrical bill. Whether you ask a family member for help, or if you are good at soldering wires, this is something you should really try to do.
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. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. Using a single dot of caulk will allow the wood to shift without damaging your solar cells. After the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
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. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. It is then necessary to connect the cells to one another via soldering.
The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
