How Solar Panels Can Save You Money
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. Our very own sun will live on for over 4 billion years giving us more than enough energy for our lifetime. Low cost energy can definitely originate from solar panels, especially if you can work with companies that offer rebates and rewards prior to installation. You should be wondering by now how these solar panels work? Well, read on to find out.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your 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. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. 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. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. 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. Don’t worry, though, because a solar cell is only about $2 a piece, so they won’t cost you a fortune.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for your solar panels. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. Solar energy gives you a viable option that frees you from being dependent on the power companies, no matter what happens in the future.
