Understanding How Solar Panels Work

More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. 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. Building your own solar panels for half the price is good news. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.

Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. 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. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. A good quality cell is necessary, you don’t want to make the mistake of getting a damaged cell group if you intend to have a higher energy production. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.

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. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead.

Without a doubt, solar panels are definitely the future for producing energy in the home, not just because they’re cost-effective but they’re also good for the environment. Therefore getting them installed sooner rather than later will enable you to save more money.
