Building your own solar panel can be easy.
In an effort to cut energy costs, more and more people are using solar energy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. The good news is that you can actually build your own solar panels for half the price. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
You can get hot water, power all of your appliances and more simply by installing a solar panel on your roof. This can allow you to cut back on many of your bills such as electricity, gas or oil.
And you needn’t worry about the cost of installing a solar panel system because most areas offer people significant incentives to put up these panels in the form of tax breaks or rebates. As this technology becomes more sophisticated, and more people are taking advantage of it, the costs are steadily declining. One of the best things about solar panels is that you can make them even more economical by installing them yourself, which will then free you from being dependent on the power companies. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them on Ebay. Just because you find them cheap doesn’t always mean you should invest in them. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. Plywood is a great option to use for the back, but you can use any type of wood you have available. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. So, you can soon have your own solar panel up and running and you might even end up powering your entire home with sunlight.
