Make Your Home Energy Efficient With Solar Panels
The reason that solar panels is so popular today is that the sun is an endless source of energy that we can rely upon. The sun is estimated by scientists last for billions of years, clearly showing this energy source is trustworthy. Several companies are now offering incentives that slash the costs of solar panels allowing most people to benefit from this cheap energy source. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? The following paragraphs will provide this explanation.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
Lots of people have reservations about the costs of solar panel systems, which is why they’ve not done anything yet. They feel that they may not save any money due to the costs of these systems. You can, however, reduce your costs by creating your own home made solar panels. You can actually cut your costs down by 50%, and in addition to this you’ll be able to find nearly everything you require on the web, for example solar cells can be found on eBay. It’s worth doing a bit of research to find whether or not where you live has any rebates or incentives for installing a solar panel system. The reason for this is the government wants people to use clean energy sources, so they are willing to give builders tax breaks if they create energy efficient homes with solar panels. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
