Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
Before electricity and central heating, the sun was the only source of energy for the earth and this was enough to allow human civilization to flourish. When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.
You can get hot water, power all of your appliances and more simply by installing a solar panel on your roof. This can allow you to cut back on many of your bills such as electricity, gas or oil.
And you needn’t worry about the cost of installing a solar panel system because most areas offer people significant incentives to put up these panels in the form of tax breaks or rebates. Solar panels are also getting less expensive as more people use them and the systems are getting more efficient. If you really want to enjoy the many benefits of solar energy at an affordable price, you should consider installing them yourself.
In addition to you being able to save money you will also be helping the environment. A lot of the energy that’s produced these days is done through many processes that have a very bad impact on the environment. On the other hand, the production of solar power has no by-products or any negative impact on the environment whatsoever. Plus, since it uses sunlight to make electricity, it is a renewable energy source, in other words it isn’t a resource that can be depleted, like oil. The good effects it has on the environment aren’t always noticeable immediately, but the more people who use energy sources that are clean the healthier the environment will be. The long-term effects will be immense, and the next generations will see these effects. Otherwise, if we continue at the rate we are going today, it is likely our grandchildren will only be able to see trees in museums because we seem to be doing a great job of killing our planet.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
