Make Your Home Energy Efficient With Solar Panels
More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. Building your own solar panels for half the price is good news. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. You can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. In order to create a solar panel at home you will need to have solar cells to mount into your wooden (or other) type of box in a collection format. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them on Ebay. Just because you find them cheap doesn’t always mean you should invest in them. A good quality cell is necessary, you don’t want to make the mistake of getting a damaged cell group if you intend to have a higher energy production. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
A component, the charge controller, must be placed between the solar panel and the battery for the following reasons. 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. 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.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. So, you can soon have your own solar panel up and running and you might even end up powering your entire home with sunlight.
