Don’t Think Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Too Difficult For You
Due to its inexpensive cost of development, and free energy from the sun, solar power is looking like a great energy alternative. Well, not for the next 4 billion years at least, which is how long the sun is expected to live. Several companies are now offering incentives that slash the costs of solar panels allowing most people to benefit from this cheap energy source. So how do solar panels really work? By the end of this article, you will understand.
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. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. 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. 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. Most people probably think it’s quite difficult to get hold of these but they can easily be found on eBay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
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. The solar cells you buy are the central element of your solar panels, so this is the first thing to consider. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.
It takes about 80 solar cells to generate 100 watts of electricity, so you have to consider this ratio when figuring out your needs. 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. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
