Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think

The reason that solar panels is so popular today is that the sun is an endless source of energy that we can rely upon. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. One of the key reasons that solar panels are becoming more popular is that discounts make it more affordable for those that want to try it out. The big question is how do these solar panels actually operate? This article details this exact process.

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. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells. A solar panel is connected to batteries and most of them use the regular 12 volt batteries that are used in cars. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. A large part of the cost of creating a solar solution for your electricity bill can be avoided by finding cheap or free batteries. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. A true sine wave inverter is the only device that will give you the same AC electricity that comes out of your sockets. By spending a few extra dollars on the right inverter, you will be able to use your electricity in your home.

In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
