Don’t Think Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Too Difficult For You
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. It may surprise you to find that many of the products you already have in your home can be used to create a simple solar panel design, for instance, you probably own a saw, drill, screwdriver and a wooden container of some sort. Don’t overlook the likelihood of needing wood glue or other adhesives such as silicone caulk available to aide in box assembly and solar panel attachment.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the 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. 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. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. 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. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time. Many people use solar panels to power their cabins, homes, and businesses which can save them thousands in electric bills. Likewise, solar panels can also be connected to the heating system and you can then heat your home with the help of solar power.
