Read this article to learn how to build your own solar panel.
The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? Today, we’re learning more sophisticated ways to benefit from the sun; solar energy is often the cheapest way to provide energy for our homes. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
Mounting a solar panel on top of your home allows you to receive solar energy that can be used for many purposes, such as lighting and heating your home and giving you hot water. This will allow you to save money on your electric and heating bills.
Most areas now offer tax incentives to help make it more affordable to install solar panels in your home. Like many other forms of technology, solar panels are getting more affordable as they get ever more advanced and more people install them. If you really want to enjoy the many benefits of solar energy at an affordable price, you should consider installing them yourself. 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. Most people probably think it’s quite difficult to get hold of these but they can easily be found on eBay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. A good quality cell is necessary, you don’t want to make the mistake of getting a damaged cell group if you intend to have a higher energy production. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per 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.
If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. If you want your solar panels to give you the maximum efficiency, you have to start out with good quality solar cells. The better the quality, the more power they can produce.
Eighty solar cells will get you about a hundred watts of electricity, though this number is only the average. Based on how much energy you need, you can use this figure to estimate how many solar panels to build and how large they’ll have to be.
Because solar panel systems are good for the environment and cost-effective they will most certainly be the future of energy production in the home. So by installing them sooner rather than later you can save more money on your electricity bills.
