Understanding How Solar Panels Work
In an effort to cut energy costs, more and more people are using solar energy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. Use this article as a guide to building your own solar panels.
All you have to do is mount a solar panel on the roof of your home to enjoy the benefits of free energy, for powering electrical appliances, lighting your home and even heating water. You’ll be able to reduce or even put an end to traditional utility bills as you can get solar power for free.
Most areas now offer tax incentives to help make it more affordable to install solar panels in your home. Additionally, the increase in popularity of solar panels and advancements in technology have led to these systems becoming more affordable. If you really want to enjoy the many benefits of solar energy at an affordable price, you should consider installing them yourself.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
You may want to consider building and installing solar panels yourself; this is a fairly simple project, and the materials you’d need are quite easy to find. When building solar panels, you have to start with solar cells that are powerful enough for your needs. By using higher quality solar cells, you’ll be able to generate more power.
For every 100 watts of electricity you require, you’ll need about 80 solar cells. Based on how much energy you need, you can use this figure to estimate how many solar panels to build and how large they’ll have to be.
As you can see, building a solar panel requires a bit of skill with tools but it is something anyone can do. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
