Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think

Solar power is an amazing form of clean energy because it is relatively inexpensive and will never run out. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. Low cost energy can definitely originate from solar panels, especially if you can work with companies that offer rebates and rewards prior to installation. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? By the end of this article, you will understand.

Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. 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 benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels.

Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. Only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell because wood tends to expand and shrink with the weather. 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.

In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary. Solar panels are generally mounted on the roofs of homes or buildings and can be used to power anything from a single appliance to your entire home. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
