Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. Our very own sun will live on for over 4 billion years giving us more than enough energy for our lifetime. One of the key reasons that solar panels are becoming more popular is that discounts make it more affordable for those that want to try it out. The big question is how do these solar panels actually operate? The following will reveal this mystery to you.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron.
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. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
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. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead.
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. Solar energy gives you a viable option that frees you from being dependent on the power companies, no matter what happens in the future.
