Don’t Think Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Too Difficult For You
To cut cost, more and more people are turning to solar energy. However, some are worried that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, even though it is an expense that would quickly be offset by savings made on the electricity bill. There is good news about building solar panels. This article is a comprehensive guide to build 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. Your utility bills can be reduced or even eliminated by doing this.
And you needn’t worry about the cost of installing a solar panel system because most areas offer people significant incentives to put up these panels in the form of tax breaks or rebates. Like many other forms of technology, solar panels are getting more affordable as they get ever more advanced and more people install them. One of the best things about solar panels is that you can make them even more economical by installing them yourself, which will then free you from being dependent on the power companies. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. You can save hundreds of dollars by finding low-cost or free batteries in your area. Storing electricity is only part of the process; you must convert this electricity into AC to be used at home or in your garage. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. A true sine wave inverter is the only device that will give you the same AC electricity that comes out of your sockets. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
With the DIY method of solar panel creation your will need to create a box for the solar cells to rest in groups within when the desired outcome is a solar panel. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. It is then necessary to connect the cells to one another via soldering. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
