Don’t Think Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Too Difficult For You
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. 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. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? This article details this exact process.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. 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. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
Before you install any solar panels, you should do some research, as the kind you get should be based on how much sunlight your area gets. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
Concentrating solar collectors are panel that need to be positioned in such a way that they get the maximum possible amount of direct sunlight, meaning that they are the best option for areas that get a lot of sunlight year round. Non-concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct sunlight. There are many people or companies who could tell you, based on your location, which type of solar panel is best for you; even if you want to install them yourself, you could call someone to get this information.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. It is an essential component because it ensures that the voltage running into the battery is at the right level and it also ensures that the batteries don’t overcharge. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
