Read this article to learn how to build your own solar panel.
Undoubtedly, solar energy is the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our 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.
Many people are worried about the cost of solar panels, which is why they haven’t yet made the switch from standard electricity providers to this form of clean energy. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. Don’t overlook the likelihood of needing wood glue or other adhesives such as silicone caulk available to aide in box assembly and solar panel attachment.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of 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. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
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. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged.
Solar panels are going to be the future of electricity production in the home because they’re not just cost-effective, they are also helpful to the environment. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
