Make Your Home Energy Efficient With Solar Panels

Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.

The solar panel itself is essentially a container that holds solar cells. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. One solar cell can generate about 0.5 volts of power, which is why a solar panel is made up of numerous solar cells. Solar panels can actually be made at home; many people make them in an attempt to reduce or eliminate their electrical bill. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires.

Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. 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. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.

Everything required to build solar panels can be found on the internet or at a home improvement store, so you may want to think about doing it yourself. The most important component of your solar panel will be the solar cell, so you need to make sure you are buying good quality units. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.

It takes about 80 solar cells to generate 100 watts of electricity, so you have to consider this ratio when figuring out your needs. The size of your solar panels and how many of them you’ll need will depend on how much power you want to get out of them.

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? If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
