Install Solar Panels to Cut Costs
While we’re accustomed to many types of energy and technology, the only power source we couldn’t live without is the sun. Solar energy is one of the most practical and economical forms of energy when we know how to take advantage of it. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. 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. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach 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. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Power will flow from the solar cells to the batteries. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. When you have solar panels, you can be reassured that you can power your home no matter how expensive utilities get, or even if services are disrupted.
