Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
Solder on your diode before you attach it to batteries. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. The latter would mean a waste of power and it can happen during the night. This step can be replaced by an alternative action consisting of the use of a control charger
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. Solar power can free you from depending on external conditions for your power needs, so that no matter what happens you’ll have a cost free way to get energy.
