Why Solar Panels Work And What They Are Used For
To cut cost, more and more people are turning to solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. It will cost you about half the price to build your own solar panels. This article has some of the most important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to 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.
The container for your solar panel is simply a box with a Plexiglas front, which will allow sunlight to flow in but will ensure that the cells are protected. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your 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. Once the caulk has set, all you need to do is to drill a hole in the box for the wires but make sure to fill it with caulk after you have pushed the wires through to make sure that no moisture gets in. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
Many people are worried about the cost of installing a solar panel system which is why they haven’t yet taken any action. They fear that the expense will be too high compared to the savings they can make on their electric bill. There is some good news though, you can create your own solar panels at home. You can save around half the money by doing this, and most of the things you need are for sale on the internet, which includes solar cells that are on sites like eBay. It’s worth doing a bit of research to find whether or not where you live has any rebates or incentives for installing a solar panel system. This is because the government wants as many people to switch over to clean energy sources and to further encourage this they offer builders excellent tax breaks if the homes they put up have solar panel systems. Your entire house, if you have enough solar panels, can actually be powered if positioned and used in the proper way. Likewise, solar panels can also be connected to the heating system and you can then heat your home with the help of solar power.
