Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think

Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.

The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. 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. In order for you to attach the solar cells and put the box together it may be necessary to have some wood glue and silicone caulk on hand. All you need to do this really is a 12 V battery for storage and a solar panel to create electricity. No need to be fancy; just find an ordinary lead acid battery for this particular job. A large part of the cost of creating a solar solution for your electricity bill can be avoided by finding cheap or free batteries. So, these batteries store the power produced by solar panels, which can then be converted into AC power with the help of a power inverter so the electricity can be used by appliances. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.

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. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary. Solar panels are generally mounted on the roofs of homes or buildings and can be used to power anything from a single appliance to your entire home. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
