Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. 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. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. 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 can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. 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.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage.
Solar panels are going to be the future of electricity production in the home because they’re not just cost-effective, they are also helpful to the environment. Therefore getting them installed sooner rather than later will enable you to save more money.
