To build your own solar panel read this article.
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. The thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. Sealed lead acid batteries seem to be the most popular type because they are inexpensive, safe and robust. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. 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. More than likely, you will want to use your appliances at home which requires purchasing a true sine wave inverter to convert electricity. Though more expensive, only the true sine wave device can create genuine AC electricity.
The items you need to build solar panels aren’t hard to find if you prefer to do it yourself; you could order everything you need online or shop in local stores. If you want your solar panels to give you the maximum efficiency, you have to start out with good quality solar cells. If you want to get the maximum amount of solar power, then, you need the best possible solar cells.
For every 100 watts of electricity you require, you’ll need about 80 solar cells. This gives you a rough idea of how powerful your solar panels need to be and how many of them you’ll need.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. So, you can soon have your own solar panel up and running and you might even end up powering your entire home with sunlight.
