The Upside of Using Solar Panels
More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. However, some are worried that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, even though it is an expense that would quickly be offset by savings made on the electricity bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells.
The container for your solar panel is simply a box with a Plexiglas front, which will allow sunlight to flow in but will ensure that the cells are protected. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. These devices will prevent overcharging the batteries and ensuring the voltage levels are correct. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
