The Upside of Using Solar Panels
No energy source created by humans can compare to the sun, which all life on this planet depends on for survival. When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. You can easily meet most of your energy needs by installing a solar panel system in your home.
A major worry for many households is the cost of the solar panels which can and probably has dissuaded many from making the switch. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. You may want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it.
The plexiglass is for protection of your cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. 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.
Many people are worried about the cost of installing a solar panel system which is why they haven’t yet taken any action. They fear that the price of solar panels will cost more than they’ll ever save on their electricity bill. But you can cut the costs by simply making your very own solar panels. You can actually cut your costs down by 50%, and in addition to this you’ll be able to find nearly everything you require on the web, for example solar cells can be found on eBay. Additionally, if you do a little research, some areas offer tax incentives and rebates if you install a solar panel system, which can be quite significant. This is due to the government wanting as many people as possible to use clean energy, so they don’t mind giving large tax breaks to builders who are willing to install solar panels in new homes.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. With your solar panel up and running you could be powering your own home with sunlight.
