Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. 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.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. Only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell because wood tends to expand and shrink with the weather. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. Once the caulk has set, all you need to do is to drill a hole in the box for the wires but make sure to fill it with caulk after you have pushed the wires through to make sure that no moisture gets in. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.
Solder on your diode before you attach it to batteries. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. The latter would mean a waste of power and it can happen during the night. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead.
The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
