It is easy to build your own solar panel.
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. You can actually make your own solar panel at home and it doesn’t really cost much, especially since then you will be able to enjoy the benefits of free electricity. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron.
Solar panel systems aren’t just a great way to save money, they are also a good way of helping to protect the environment. Because many of the methods of producing electricity these days create a lot of waste and pollution, they are not good for the health of the environment. But when it comes to solar power there are no by-products or pollutants that will harm the environment. Plus, since it uses sunlight to make electricity, it is a renewable energy source, in other words it isn’t a resource that can be depleted, like oil. The positive effects on the environment might not be visible right away but the more people use clean energy sources, the better the environment will fair. The effects in the long-term will be incredible and your children and grandchildren will feel the effects. But if we keep polluting how we are now, our grandchildren won’t be able to see trees outside, they’ll be in museums because we’re doing a good job of destroying our planet.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Wood is the most widely used material for these containers although there are a wide range of other materials that can also be used. Plywood is a great option to use for the back, but you can use any type of wood you have available. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells.
Because solar panel systems are good for the environment and cost-effective they will most certainly be the future of energy production in the home. So the sooner you install them, the more money you’ll save.
