It’s Not Difficult to Install Solar Panels
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. Today, we’re learning more sophisticated ways to benefit from the sun; solar energy is often the cheapest way to provide energy for our homes. By installing solar panels in your home, you can have a very practical and inexpensive form of energy that has many uses.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. 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 design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. In order for you to attach the solar cells and put the box together it may be necessary to have some wood glue and silicone caulk on hand.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. After the caulk has set, you will need to drill a hole in the box for the wires. 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. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead.
Undoubtedly, solar panel systems are the future for energy production for the home due to their cost-effectiveness over the long term as well as the fact that they are good for the environment. So the sooner you install them, the more money you’ll save.
