Read this article to learn how to build your own solar panel.
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. Solar energy is one of the most practical and economical forms of energy when we know how to take advantage of it. With easy to install solar panels, it’s possible to get heat and electricity you can use for all of your power requirements.
Many people are worried about the cost of solar panels, which is why they haven’t yet made the switch from standard electricity providers to this form of clean energy. But, there is good news, solar panels are probably not as expensive as you might think, in fact you can even make your own solar panels at home with a little help from the internet and some basic household tools. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells.
This plexiglass topped container serves as protection from the elements for the cells as well as allowing unobstructed sunlight to reach the cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. 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. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. To make sure that the electricity does not flow backwards, these units are also necessary. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used. Your entire house, if you have enough solar panels, can actually be powered if positioned and used in the proper way. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
