Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the environment. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. 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. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. 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. You still need a quality cell group that’s not damaged in order to maximize your energy output. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. Solar power can free you from depending on external conditions for your power needs, so that no matter what happens you’ll have a cost free way to get energy.
