Solar Panel Systems – The Benefits of Using Them

Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the 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.

It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. 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. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. Making a solar panel at home means that you will need solar cells because a panel is simply a collection of solar cells mounted in a container of some sort. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. 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.

Many people are worried about the cost of installing a solar panel system which is why they haven’t yet taken any action. They are worried that installing solar panels will cost more than they’ll save. But you can cut the costs by simply making your very own solar panels. You can save around half the money by doing this, and most of the things you need are for sale on the internet, which includes solar cells that are on sites like eBay. It’s worth doing a bit of research to find whether or not where you live has any rebates or incentives for installing a solar panel system. 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. While you will need to have some DIY skills to be able to make your own solar panels, it isn’t as difficult as many people think. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
