Don’t Think Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Too Difficult For You
While we’re accustomed to many types of energy and technology, the only power source we couldn’t live without is the sun. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
A major worry for many households is the cost of the solar panels which can and probably has dissuaded many from making the switch. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. You may want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it. Since you will need solar cells mounted together to create your homemade solar panel it’s important to have them on hand as well. Ebay is a good place to look for inexpensive cells against popular belief that they might be difficult to locate. Just because you find them cheap doesn’t always mean you should invest in them. You still need a quality cell group that’s not damaged in order to maximize your energy output. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
Another aspect of solar panels are the charge controllers that are in between the panel itself and the storage battery. Voltage level regulation, as well as maintaining battery capacity levels, is the focus of this particular component. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage.
There has never been a more ideal time to use solar energy, as heating and other utility costs soar and the state of the economy remains uncertain. 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.
