Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease

There are a variety of positives when it comes to solar panels, especially since they harness the natural elements on earth to provide us with green energy. Additionally, they’re a source of energy that will never run out, which is called a renewable energy source. So, if you have been wondering whether or not installing solar panels is worth it, read on to learn more about this amazing 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. 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. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells.

This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging 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. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.

It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. 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. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. Since sunlight needs to get into each cell, plexiglass coverings are perfect ways to protect the cells from the elements and still allow full sun exposure to the cells. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.

Because solar panel systems are good for the environment and cost-effective they will most certainly be the future of energy production in the home. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
