What to Consider When Installing Solar Panels
Before electricity and central heating, the sun was the only source of energy for the earth and this was enough to allow human civilization to flourish. When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to 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. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them 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. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. You may be surprised to find out that these cells aren’t as expensive as you might have thought, in fact only about $2 each.
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. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead.
With rising fuel costs and widespread economic problems, this is the perfect time to free yourself from he power companies by installing solar panels. If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
