Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
Solar power is an amazing form of clean energy because it is relatively inexpensive and will never run out. Well, not for the next 4 billion years at least, which is how long the sun is expected to live. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. So how do solar panels really work? The following will reveal this mystery to you.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. 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. 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. 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. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.
Solder on your diode before you attach it to batteries. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. Lastly make sure that you are not wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. 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. If you are serious about saving money, this is a project easy enough for even the novice to complete once the materials are rounded up and the patience to succeed is wrangled into production.
