Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. With the help of solar panels, everyone can now enjoy the benefits of this cheap form of energy, especially since most areas provide tax incentives and rebates to people who switch to clean energy. But how exactly do solar panels work? The following paragraphs will provide this explanation.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. 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. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. Whether you ask a family member for help, or if you are good at soldering wires, this is something you should really try to do. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. A plain old lead acid battery, which is very affordable, is what you’ll need. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. However, the best one is the one that creates the exact same type of electricity that comes out of the wall socket and that is the true sine wave. It is a little more expensive than the modified sine wave, but it’s worth paying a little extra in the long run.
You may want to consider building and installing solar panels yourself; this is a fairly simple project, and the materials you’d need are quite easy to find. The solar cells you buy are the central element of your solar panels, so this is the first thing to consider. The more powerful they are, the more energy you’ll get out of them.
Eighty solar cells will get you about a hundred watts of electricity, though this number is only the average. This gives you a rough idea of how powerful your solar panels need to be and how many of them you’ll need.
As you can see, building a solar panel requires a bit of skill with tools but it is something anyone can do. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
