Install Solar Panels to Cut Costs
More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
You can run your lamps, television, computers and even get hot water from the power generated by a solar panel on the roof of your home. Once these panels are installed, this energy won’t cost you anything, so you can save a lot on utility costs.
While there is a cost involved to actually install solar panels, this can be offset by rebates or tax breaks that are available in many places. Additionally, the increase in popularity of solar panels and advancements in technology have led to these systems becoming more affordable. Considering that you can also install solar panels yourself, you can save even more money and then be able to enjoy an energy source no one can control or take away from you as long as the sun is shining. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like Ebay. Just because you find them cheap doesn’t always mean you should invest in them. You still need a quality cell group that’s not damaged in order to maximize your energy output. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.
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. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. This way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder.
There has never been a more ideal time to use solar energy, as heating and other utility costs soar and the state of the economy remains uncertain. Solar energy gives you a viable option that frees you from being dependent on the power companies, no matter what happens in the future.
