Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
The sun is amazing, especially considering that the energy it puts out is so powerful that the amount our planet absorbs in one hour is enough to cover the energy needs of our planet for one year. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. By installing solar panels in your home, you can have a very practical and inexpensive form of energy that has many uses.
Many people are worried about the cost of solar panels, which is why they haven’t yet made the switch from standard electricity providers to this form of clean energy. 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. It may surprise you to find that many of the products you already have in your home can be used to create a simple solar panel design, for instance, you probably own a saw, drill, screwdriver and a wooden container of some sort. 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. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like Ebay. 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. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. 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. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. In this day and age, you can feel safer knowing that your energy needs don’t depend on things like oil, gas or coal being affordable or even available at all.
