Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
Solar power is an amazing form of clean energy because it is relatively inexpensive and will never run out. Our very own sun will live on for over 4 billion years giving us more than enough energy for our lifetime. 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. The big question is how do these solar panels actually operate? By the end of this article, you will understand.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. Don’t overlook the likelihood of needing wood glue or other adhesives such as silicone caulk available to aide in box assembly and solar panel attachment.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. To make sure that the electricity does not flow backwards, these units are also necessary. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
