Read this article to learn how to build your own solar panel.
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. The process itself involves photons hitting electrons in the silicone material on the solar cells, which become electricity. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. However, don’t make the mistake of buying cells simply because they are cheap. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
Many people are worried about the cost of installing a solar panel system which is why they haven’t yet taken any action. They are worried that installing solar panels will cost more than they’ll save. But you can cut the costs by simply making your very own solar panels. In fact, you can cut the cost down to about half and you can find most of what you need online, including solar cells which can be found on sites such as eBay. And in addition to this, if you do some research you may find that the area you live in provides tax incentives and special rebates for installing solar panels. The reason for this is the government wants people to use clean energy sources, so they are willing to give builders tax breaks if they create energy efficient homes with solar panels. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. 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.
