Install Solar Panels to Cut Costs
Solar power is an amazing form of clean energy because it is relatively inexpensive and will never run out. Well, not for the next 4 billion years at least, which is how long the sun is expected to live. One of the key reasons that solar panels are becoming more popular is that discounts make it more affordable for those that want to try it out. But how exactly do solar panels work? Well, read on to find out.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. 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. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
Moving on, you will need to add to your solar panel and battery a little device called a charge controller for the following reasons. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
