Install Solar Panels to Cut Costs

In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Solar energy is “green” meaning it leaves no negative impact on the environment not to mention it is likely to be around for a couple billion more years, or so the experts say. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.

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. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.

The container for your solar panel is simply a box with a Plexiglas front, which will allow sunlight to flow in but will ensure that the cells are protected. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. Only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell because wood tends to expand and shrink with the weather. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.

If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. The power of the solar cells you use will be the main factor that determines how much energy you get from your solar panels. The more powerful they are, the more energy you’ll get out of them.

Eighty solar cells will get you about a hundred watts of electricity, though this number is only the average. The size of your solar panels and how many of them you’ll need will depend on how much power you want to get out of them.

The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. So, you can soon have your own solar panel up and running and you might even end up powering your entire home with sunlight.
