Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
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. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? Well, read on to find out.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. 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. You may want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it. If you have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. There are two types of power inverters available, namely true sine wave and modified sine wave. A true sine wave inverter is the only device that will give you the same AC electricity that comes out of your sockets. By spending a few extra dollars on the right inverter, you will be able to use your electricity in your home.
It’s not hard to build solar panels yourself, as you could get all the materials you need at local stores or online. The power of the solar cells you use will be the main factor that determines how much energy you get from your solar panels. By using higher quality solar cells, you’ll be able to generate more power.
It takes about 80 solar cells to generate 100 watts of electricity, so you have to consider this ratio when figuring out your needs. The size of your solar panels and how many of them you’ll need will depend on how much power you want to get out of them. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
