How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
Before electricity and central heating, the sun was the only source of energy for the earth and this was enough to allow human civilization to flourish. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. 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. In order for you to attach the solar cells and put the box together it may be necessary to have some wood glue and silicone caulk on hand. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them on Ebay. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder a diode first. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. The latter would mean a waste of power and it can happen during the night. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. You just need a bit of patience and make sure you have all the materials you need before you start.
