It’s Not Difficult to Install Solar Panels
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our 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.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place.
The plexiglass is for protection of your cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. After the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
With the DIY method of solar panel creation your will need to create a box for the solar cells to rest in groups within when the desired outcome is a solar panel. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. Solar energy gives you a viable option that frees you from being dependent on the power companies, no matter what happens in the future.
