Building your own solar panel can be easy.
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
The solar panel itself is essentially a container that holds solar cells. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. The process itself involves photons hitting electrons in the silicone material on the solar cells, which become electricity. One solar cell can generate about 0.5 volts of power, which is why a solar panel is made up of numerous solar cells. Solar panels can actually be made at home; many people make them in an attempt to reduce or eliminate their electrical bill. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron.
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. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. Once the caulk has set, all you need to do is to drill a hole in the box for the wires but make sure to fill it with caulk after you have pushed the wires through to make sure that no moisture gets in. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
The items you need to build solar panels aren’t hard to find if you prefer to do it yourself; you could order everything you need online or shop in local stores. If you want your solar panels to give you the maximum efficiency, you have to start out with good quality solar cells. The more powerful they are, the more energy you’ll get out of them.
Eighty solar cells will get you about a hundred watts of electricity, though this number is only the average. Based on how much energy you need, you can use this figure to estimate how many solar panels to build and how large they’ll have to be.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
