Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Solar energy is “green” meaning it leaves no negative impact on the environment not to mention it is likely to be around for a couple billion more years, or so the experts say. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. Don’t overlook the likelihood of needing wood glue or other adhesives such as silicone caulk available to aide in box assembly and solar panel attachment.
Installing solar panels will not only benefit you in terms of savings, but it will also help the environment. The majority of methods for producing energy these days are not good for the environment because they create a lot of pollution and waste. On the other hand, producing energy with a solar power system doesn’t harm the environment at all and there are no by-products either. In addition to this, sunlight is used to produce electricity, which means it is a resource that will not become depleted, unlike oil which will. The good effects it has on the environment aren’t always noticeable immediately, but the more people who use energy sources that are clean the healthier the environment will be. The long-term effects will be immense, and the next generations will see these effects. Otherwise, if we continue at the rate we are going today, it is likely our grandchildren will only be able to see trees in museums because we seem to be doing a great job of killing our planet.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
