Install Solar Panels to Cut Costs
To cut cost, more and more people are turning to solar energy. The expense of the solar panels would be offset by the savings on your electricity bill. It will cost you about half the price to build your own solar panels. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
The kind of solar panels you get will depend on where you live, as the climate and amount of sunlight received varies from place to place. Depending on the amount of sunlight you get, you may be better off with a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector.
If you get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. If, however, you only get a limited amount of sunlight, a non-concentrating solar collector would be a better choice, as these can also absorb reflected sunlight. You can always consult with an expert if you don’t know which type of solar panel would be appropriate for you.
The reason for a number of people not taking any action is because the price of installing solar panels worries them. Their main worry is that the expenses will be very high when compared with the saving they’ll make on their electricity bill. The good news is, though, that you can reduce your costs by making your own solar panels at home. In fact, you’ll be able to reduce the costs by around 50%, and the internet is a good place to find most of the equipment needed, including solar cells which are available on eBay and other similar sites. And if you do some research, there are a few areas that offer special rebates and incentives for installing solar panels, which is useful. This is due to the government wanting as many people as possible to use clean energy, so they don’t mind giving large tax breaks to builders who are willing to install solar panels in new homes.
There has never been a more ideal time to use solar energy, as heating and other utility costs soar and the state of the economy remains uncertain. Solar energy gives you a viable option that frees you from being dependent on the power companies, no matter what happens in the future.
