Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think

While we’re accustomed to many types of energy and technology, the only power source we couldn’t live without is the sun. When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.

To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. Whether you ask a family member for help, or if you are good at soldering wires, this is something you should really try to do.

The kind of solar panels you get will depend on where you live, as the climate and amount of sunlight received varies from place to place. This is because there are two types of solar panels, namely concentrating solar collectors and non-concentrating collectors.

If you get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. Not everyone lives in a place that gets a lot of direct sunlight, though, and for anyone in this category a non-concentrating solar collector, which can absorb sunlight from reflection as well as directly, is the perfect choice. You can always consult with an expert if you don’t know which type of solar panel would be appropriate for you.

If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. The most important component of your solar panel will be the solar cell, so you need to make sure you are buying good quality units. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.

The usual ratio to keep in mind is that eighty solar cells will generate approximately one hundred watts of electricity. 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.

When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
