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.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Otherwise you will have to solder on 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. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. 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. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
The cost of installing a solar panel system plays on many people’s minds, which is why they’ve not taken action yet. They fear that the expense will be too high compared to the savings they can make on their electric bill. There is some good news though, you can create your own solar panels at home. You can actually cut your costs down by 50%, and in addition to this you’ll be able to find nearly everything you require on the web, for example solar cells can be found on eBay. There may also be significant rebates and tax incentives if you install a solar panel system, which is worth doing some research on. This is because the government wants as many people to switch over to clean energy sources and to further encourage this they offer builders excellent tax breaks if the homes they put up have solar panel systems.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
