Read this article to learn how to build your own solar panel.
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the 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.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You’ll also need some caulk 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. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. 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. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
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 maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time. While you will need to have some DIY skills to be able to make your own solar panels, it isn’t as difficult as many people think. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
