Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think

Before electricity and central heating, the sun was the only source of energy for the earth and this was enough to allow human civilization to flourish. When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. By installing solar panels in your home, you can have a very practical and inexpensive form of energy that has many uses.

If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. 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. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. 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. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. Many places will offer great deals on these types of batteries along with coupons at your local store. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. More than likely, you will want to use your appliances at home which requires purchasing a true sine wave inverter to convert electricity. By spending a few extra dollars on the right inverter, you will be able to use your electricity in your home.

Lots of people have reservations about the costs of solar panel systems, which is why they’ve not done anything yet. Their main worry is that the expenses will be very high when compared with the saving they’ll make on their electricity bill. But the good news is you can cut the costs by simply making your own solar panels. 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. It’s worth doing a bit of research to find whether or not where you live has any rebates or incentives for installing a solar panel system. 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.

With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
