Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
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. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. 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 also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells.
Your climate and how much sunlight you receive are important factors to consider before getting solar panels. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
If you get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. Non-concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct sunlight. You can always consult with an expert if you don’t know which type of solar panel would be appropriate for you.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.
The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
