You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. However, some are worried that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, even though it is an expense that would quickly be offset by savings made on the electricity bill. There is good news about building solar panels. While this article can’t possibly provide a comprehensive guide to building your own solar panel, we will look at some of the most important aspects.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. You may want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. 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. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. 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.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. 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. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
