How to Build Your Own Solar Panel
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. 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.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. If you have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. This electricity needs to be converted, so you will need to have a power inverter to convert the energy to be used around your house. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. However, the best one is the one that creates the exact same type of electricity that comes out of the wall socket and that is the true sine wave. By spending a few extra dollars on the right inverter, you will be able to use your electricity in your home.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged.
Solar panel systems are most certainly the future of energy production for people’s homes, not just for the reason that they’re cost-effective, but also because they have a positive impact on the environment. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
