Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You may want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it. 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. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like Ebay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. 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.
In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
