To build your own solar panel read this article.
There are multiple benefits of solar panels simply due to the fact that they make clean energy from the natural elements on our planet. In addition to this, they are a renewable energy source (which means it’s a resource that’ll never run out) which is an added bonus. Maybe you’ve thought about getting solar panels, but you’re unsure if they’re worth it. If so, I recommend reading on to learn more about this fantastic source of energy.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. Containers can be made out of a wide range of materials but the one that most people prefer is wood because it is easier to work with. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. It is then necessary to connect the cells to one another via soldering.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
