How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. However, some are worried that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, even though it is an expense that would quickly be offset by savings made on the electricity bill. The good news is that you can actually build your own solar panels for half the price. Use this article as a guide to building your own solar panels.
The solar panel itself is essentially a container that holds solar cells. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide 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. Whether you ask a family member for help, or if you are good at soldering wires, this is something you should really try to do. 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. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. The power of the solar cells you use will be the main factor that determines how much energy you get from your solar panels. By using higher quality solar cells, you’ll be able to generate more power.
The usual ratio to keep in mind is that eighty solar cells will generate approximately one hundred watts of electricity. Depending on how large your home is and how much solar power you want to generate, you can calculate the size of your solar panels and how many you should build. Solar panels are generally mounted on the roofs of homes or buildings and can be used to power anything from a single appliance to your entire home. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
