Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
The sun is amazing, especially considering that the energy it puts out is so powerful that the amount our planet absorbs in one hour is enough to cover the energy needs of our planet for one year. We obviously depend on the sun to heat our planet, but there are actually many diverse ways this energy can be harnessed for our daily use. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. 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. It may surprise you to find that many of the products you already have in your home can be used to create a simple solar panel design, for instance, you probably own a saw, drill, screwdriver and a wooden container of some sort. Don’t overlook the likelihood of needing wood glue or other adhesives such as silicone caulk available to aide in box assembly and solar panel attachment.
You’ll not only benefit from saving money, but it’s also good for the environment. Most of the processes that occur when producing electricity have quite a large negative impact on the environment due to waste and pollution. However, the production of energy with solar panels has no negative impacts on the environment at all. In addition to this, sunlight is used to produce electricity, which means it is a resource that will not become depleted, unlike oil which will. You might not be able to see the positive effects on the environment just yet, but if more people start using clean energy sources the environment will do much better. The effects in the long-term will be incredible and your children and grandchildren will feel the effects. But at the rate of destruction we’re currently going at, our children and grandchildren wouldn’t be able to experience the environment like how we do today.
Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with your solar panels. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. Since sunlight needs to get into each cell, plexiglass coverings are perfect ways to protect the cells from the elements and still allow full sun exposure to the cells. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
