Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think

The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? 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.

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. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. However, you do need to be handy with a soldering iron and a saw, so if you aren’t really into DIY, maybe you should ask a friend who is for help.

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. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. 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. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.

If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. When building solar panels, you have to start with solar cells that are powerful enough for your needs. The more powerful they are, the more energy you’ll get out of them.

Eighty solar cells will get you about a hundred watts of electricity, though this number is only the average. Based on how much energy you need, you can use this figure to estimate how many solar panels to build and how large they’ll have to be.

Solar panels give you a cheap power alternative that can serve you well in difficult economic times and ever rising utility costs. If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
