To build your own solar panel read this article.
Solar panels offer many benefits because they create clean energy by using the natural elements of our planet. In addition to this, they are a renewable energy source (which means it’s a resource that’ll never run out) which is an added bonus. 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.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar 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. It may surprise you to find that many of the products you already have in your home can be used to create a simple solar panel design, for instance, you probably own a saw, drill, screwdriver and a wooden container of some sort. You may want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it.
The plexiglass is for protection of your 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. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. Once the caulk has set, all you need to do is to drill a hole in the box for the wires but make sure to fill it with caulk after you have pushed the wires through to make sure that no moisture gets in. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
