Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
While we’re accustomed to many types of energy and technology, the only power source we couldn’t live without is the sun. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. You can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like Ebay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete.
There is no better time than now to switch to an alternative power source, considering the state of the global economy, especially since many experts fear that the worst is yet to come. Solar power can free you from depending on external conditions for your power needs, so that no matter what happens you’ll have a cost free way to get energy.
