Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think
Because of the state of the global economy, many 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. There is good news about building solar panels. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
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. The simplest type of solar panel to create can be made using items you may already own such as a screwdriver, saw, drill and a wooden container. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells.
Before you install any solar panels, you should do some research, as the kind you get should be based on how much sunlight your area gets. This is because there are two types of solar panels, namely concentrating solar collectors and non-concentrating collectors.
Concentrating solar collectors are panel that need to be positioned in such a way that they get the maximum possible amount of direct sunlight, meaning that they are the best option for areas that get a lot of sunlight year round. Non-concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct sunlight. If you still aren’t sure what type is best for you, you always have the option of consulting a professional.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. Another versatile use for solar panels is to have them power heaters for your home to cut back on your energy bill.
