Understanding How Solar Panels Work
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. The expense of the solar panels would be offset by the savings on your electricity bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
Using a solar panel system means you will be self reliant for your power, so you won’t need to rely on the public power grid, which is an excellent benefit. This means that you can greatly cut down your electricity bills and maybe even slash them dramatically. You can also earn some cash as in many areas the government will purchase any additional energy you create. However, even if this is not the case where you live, the savings you can make by installing a solar panel system are enormous.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. Only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell because wood tends to expand and shrink with the weather. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. 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. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
