To build your own solar panel read this article.

No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. We obviously depend on the sun to heat our planet, but there are actually many diverse ways this energy can be harnessed for our daily use. With easy to install solar panels, it’s possible to get heat and electricity you can use for all of your power requirements.

The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. Don’t overlook the likelihood of needing wood glue or other adhesives such as silicone caulk available to aide in box assembly and solar panel attachment.

The plexiglass is for protection of your cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. After the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.

Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage.

Because solar panel systems are good for the environment and cost-effective they will most certainly be the future of energy production in the home. So, you can save more money by installing them sooner rather than later.
