It’s Not Difficult to Install Solar Panels
Energy from the limitless resource of the sun is the primary focus of those that develop solar energy products. This energy supply is really limitless and will continue on for many lifetimes. Several companies are now offering incentives that slash the costs of solar panels allowing most people to benefit from this cheap energy source. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? By the end of this article, you will understand.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. 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. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on 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. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. After the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. It is an essential component because it ensures that the voltage running into the battery is at the right level and it also ensures that the batteries don’t overcharge. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
