Building your own solar panel can be easy.
More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. The expense of the solar panels would be offset by the savings on your electricity bill. Building your own solar panels for half the price is good news. This article has some of the most important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. 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 type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. Storing electricity is only part of the process; you must convert this electricity into AC to be used at home or in your garage. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. More than likely, you will want to use your appliances at home which requires purchasing a true sine wave inverter to convert electricity. Only a true sine wave inverter, not a modified sine wave device, will convert the energy properly, but at a higher price.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. It is an essential component because it ensures that the voltage running into the battery is at the right level and it also ensures that the batteries don’t overcharge. Proper flow of your electricity from the solar panel to the battery, but not vice versa, is handled by these components. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
