Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think

Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. 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.

Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. The process itself involves photons hitting electrons in the silicone material on the solar cells, which become electricity. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. However, don’t make the mistake of buying cells simply because they are cheap. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. You may be surprised to find out that these cells aren’t as expensive as you might have thought, in fact only about $2 each.

Solder on your diode before you attach it to batteries. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
