You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. The good news is that you can actually build your own solar panels for half the price. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. 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.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. Using a single dot of caulk will allow the wood to shift without damaging your solar cells. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. 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. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
