Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
You can run your lamps, television, computers and even get hot water from the power generated by a solar panel on the roof of your home. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
Depending on where you live, you can probably get a rebate or tax break when you install solar panels. As this technology becomes more sophisticated, and more people are taking advantage of it, the costs are steadily declining. If you really want to enjoy the many benefits of solar energy at an affordable price, you should consider installing them yourself.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. 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. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. 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.
A component, the charge controller, must be placed between the solar panel and the battery for the following reasons. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
