It’s Not Difficult to Install Solar Panels
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. Building your own solar panels for half the price is good news. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
Using a solar panel system means you will be self reliant for your power, so you won’t need to rely on the public power grid, which is an excellent benefit. This means that you will be able to greatly reduce your electricity bills and even completely slash them in some cases. Additionally, the government may buy any surplus electricity you produce which means that you can get paid for it. However, even if this is not the case where you live, the savings you can make by installing a solar panel system are enormous.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. Using a single dot of caulk will allow the wood to shift without damaging your solar cells. Once the caulk has set, all you need to do is to drill a hole in the box for the wires but make sure to fill it with caulk after you have pushed the wires through to make sure that no moisture gets in. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. Do it yourself skills are necessary as with any project but overall this is a simple task to tackle for many of us. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
