It’s Not Difficult to Install Solar Panels
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. 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. 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.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. 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. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place.
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. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
The items you need to build solar panels aren’t hard to find if you prefer to do it yourself; you could order everything you need online or shop in local stores. The power of the solar cells you use will be the main factor that determines how much energy you get from your solar panels. By using higher quality solar cells, you’ll be able to generate more power.
The usual ratio to keep in mind is that eighty solar cells will generate approximately one hundred watts of electricity. This gives you a rough idea of how powerful your solar panels need to be and how many of them you’ll need.
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? When you have solar panels, you can be reassured that you can power your home no matter how expensive utilities get, or even if services are disrupted.
