Building your own solar panel can be easy.

Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. 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. The good news is that you can actually build your own solar panels for half the price. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.

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 may be able to drastically cut your electricity bills, but at the very least you’ll be able to cut them down a bit. In addition to this you may also be able to get paid for any extra electricity you produce, as the government purchases it in some areas. However, even if this is not the case where you live, the savings you can make by installing a solar panel system are enormous. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. A plain old lead acid battery, which is very affordable, is what you’ll need. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. So, these batteries store the power produced by solar panels, which can then be converted into AC power with the help of a power inverter so the electricity can be used by appliances. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.

In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. The latter would mean a waste of power and it can happen during the night. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. This is a task that only requires patience, materials and perseverance to succeed in making your own solar panel to save energy.
