How to Build Your Own Solar Panel

Energy from the limitless resource of the sun is the primary focus of those that develop solar energy products. This energy supply is really limitless and will continue on for many lifetimes. One of the key reasons that solar panels are becoming more popular is that discounts make it more affordable for those that want to try it out. But how exactly do solar panels work? Well, read on to find out.

Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. The thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. However, you do need to be handy with a soldering iron and a saw, so if you aren’t really into DIY, maybe you should ask a friend who is for help. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them on Ebay. However, don’t make the mistake of buying cells simply because they are cheap. A good quality cell is necessary, you don’t want to make the mistake of getting a damaged cell group if you intend to have a higher energy production. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.

If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. The solar cells you buy are the central element of your solar panels, so this is the first thing to consider. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.

It takes about 80 solar cells to generate 100 watts of electricity, so you have to consider this ratio when figuring out your needs. The size of your solar panels and how many of them you’ll need will depend on how much power you want to get out of them. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
