How Solar Panels Can Save You Money

Energy from the limitless resource of the sun is the primary focus of those that develop solar energy products. Well, not for the next 4 billion years at least, which is how long the sun is expected to live. 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. But how exactly do solar panels work? This article details this exact process.

It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. 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. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. Just because you find them cheap doesn’t always mean you should invest in them. You still need a quality cell group that’s not damaged in order to maximize your energy output. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.

Many people don’t take any action because they’re worried about the cost of installing solar panels. They fear that the expense will be too high compared to the savings they can make on their electric bill. But you can cut the costs by simply making your very own solar panels. Actually, you can reduce the cost by half and you can find nearly everything you need online, which includes solar cells. And in addition to this, if you do some research you may find that the area you live in provides tax incentives and special rebates for installing solar panels. This is due to the government wanting as many people as possible to use clean energy, so they don’t mind giving large tax breaks to builders who are willing to install solar panels in new homes.

All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
