Don’t Think Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Too Difficult For You
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has 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.
If you’re using solar panels for your power you won’t need to rely on the public electric grid, which is probably the biggest benefit of using a solar panel system. This means that you can greatly cut down your electricity bills and maybe even slash them dramatically. Also, you can actually earn money because in many areas the government will buy any surplus energy you create. But even if this doesn’t happen where you live, you’ll still make big savings from installing solar panels.
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. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with your solar panels. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. This plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. You will also need a whole in the bottom of the box that will allow you to pull the wires out of the box. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. In no time at all you can have your own solar panel up and running.
