Building your own solar panel can be easy.
Due to its inexpensive cost of development, and free energy from the sun, solar power is looking like a great energy alternative. Our very own sun will live on for over 4 billion years giving us more than enough energy for our lifetime. Several companies are now offering incentives that slash the costs of solar panels allowing most people to benefit from this cheap energy source. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? The following will reveal this mystery to you.
One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. 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. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels. If you have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. Sealed lead acid batteries seem to be the most popular type because they are inexpensive, safe and robust. A large part of the cost of creating a solar solution for your electricity bill can be avoided by finding cheap or free batteries. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. It is a little more expensive than the modified sine wave, but it’s worth paying a little extra in the long run.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. To make sure your batteries do not explode, or receive the wrong level of voltage while charging, you need to have these devices hooked up. A charge controller will also ensure that no power flows out of the batteries and back into the solar panel, which would be a waste. They also prevent overcharging of your batteries which can happen if they are not used.
The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
