Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
Solar panels have many advantages, especially since they provide clean energy by harnessing the natural elements of the planet. In addition to this, they are a renewable energy source (which means it’s a resource that’ll never run out) which is an added bonus. You may have been wondering whether or not you should get solar panels installed, in which case I recommend you continue to read to learn more about this wonderful energy source.
Undoubtedly one of the best benefits of installing solar panels is the fact that you’ll be making your own energy, so you won’t need to rely on the electric grid for power. This means that you will be able to greatly reduce your electricity bills and even completely slash them in some cases. Also, you can actually earn money because in many areas the government will buy any surplus energy you create. Installing a solar panel system will enable you to make big savings, regardless of whether this scheme operates in your area or not. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them 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. You still need a quality cell group that’s not damaged in order to maximize your energy output. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. You may be surprised to find out that these cells aren’t as expensive as you might have thought, in fact only about $2 each.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. 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. Plywood is a great option to use for the back, but you can use any type of wood you have available. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. Solar energy gives you a viable option that frees you from being dependent on the power companies, no matter what happens in the future.
