The Upside of Using Solar Panels
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. However, some are worried that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, even though it is an expense that would quickly be offset by savings made on the electricity bill. There is good news about building solar panels. Use this article as a guide to building your own solar panels.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. 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 will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like Ebay. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.
Solder on your diode before you attach it to batteries. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
