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? We obviously depend on the sun to heat our planet, but there are actually many diverse ways this energy can be harnessed for our daily use. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. The rays of the sun which strike the solar cells, which are made of silicone, will generate electricity upon contact. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. The thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. However, you do need to be handy with a soldering iron and a saw, so if you aren’t really into DIY, maybe you should ask a friend who is for help. A solar panel is connected to batteries and most of them use the regular 12 volt batteries that are used in cars. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. A true sine wave inverter is the only device that will give you the same AC electricity that comes out of your sockets. Though more expensive, only the true sine wave device can create genuine AC electricity.
Solder on your diode before you attach it to batteries. Power will flow from the solar cells to the batteries. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. If you are serious about saving money, this is a project easy enough for even the novice to complete once the materials are rounded up and the patience to succeed is wrangled into production.
