Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. 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. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place.
Solar panels will not only help you to reduce your costs, but it’s good for the environment. Most of the electricity being produced today is done through processes that have a significantly negative impact on the environment, through waste and pollution. On the other hand, producing energy with a solar power system doesn’t harm the environment at all and there are no by-products either. 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 good effects it has on the environment aren’t always noticeable immediately, but the more people who use energy sources that are clean the healthier the environment will be. The long-term effects will be immense, and the next generations will see these effects. Otherwise, if we continue at the rate we are going today, it is likely our grandchildren will only be able to see trees in museums because we seem to be doing a great job of killing our planet.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. To make sure that the electricity does not flow backwards, these units are also necessary. They also act like a resistor not allowing the batteries to be overcharged. You must place solar panels on top of your building or home so that they can receive sunlight and power your home at the same time. Likewise, solar panels can also be connected to the heating system and you can then heat your home with the help of solar power.
