Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
The sun is amazing, especially considering that the energy it puts out is so powerful that the amount our planet absorbs in one hour is enough to cover the energy needs of our planet for one year. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and 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. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. 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. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
It’s not hard to build solar panels yourself, as you could get all the materials you need at local stores or online. The solar cells you buy are the central element of your solar panels, so this is the first thing to consider. The better the quality, the more power they can produce.
On average, 80 solar cells will produce about 100 watts of electricity. Considering this you can now determine how large to make your solar panels and how many of them you need to power your home. Do it yourself skills are necessary as with any project but overall this is a simple task to tackle for many of us. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
