How to Build Your Own Solar Panel
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. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged.
Because solar panel systems are good for the environment and cost-effective they will most certainly be the future of energy production in the home. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
