You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. Well, not for the next 4 billion years at least, which is how long the sun is expected to live. Several companies are now offering incentives that slash the costs of solar panels allowing most people to benefit from this cheap energy source. The big question is how do these solar panels actually operate? By the end of this article, you will understand.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. 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. All you need to do this really is a 12 V battery for storage and a solar panel to create electricity. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. Many places will offer great deals on these types of batteries along with coupons at your local store. So, these batteries store the power produced by solar panels, which can then be converted into AC power with the help of a power inverter so the electricity can be used by appliances. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. By spending a few extra dollars on the right inverter, you will be able to use your electricity in your home.
Everything required to build solar panels can be found on the internet or at a home improvement store, so you may want to think about doing it yourself. The most important component of your solar panel will be the solar cell, so you need to make sure you are buying good quality units. The more powerful they are, the more energy you’ll get out of them.
On average, 80 solar cells will produce about 100 watts of electricity. 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.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
