Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think

In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. 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.

Using a solar panel system means you will be self reliant for your power, so you won’t need to rely on the public power grid, which is an excellent benefit. You will at the very least be able to save on your electricity bills, and you may even be able to drastically reduce them. 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. But even if this doesn’t happen where you live, you’ll still make big savings from installing solar panels.

When researching solar panels, you have to take into consideration the area you are living in and the amount of sunlight you get. You have to choose between two kinds of solar panels: concentrating and non-concentrating solar collectors.

Concentrating solar collectors are panel that need to be positioned in such a way that they get the maximum possible amount of direct sunlight, meaning that they are the best option for areas that get a lot of sunlight year round. If you don’t get that much sun, however, you can still benefit from solar power with a non-concentrating solar collector, which can operate from reflected as well as direct sunlight. You could have a company that specializes in installing solar panels advise you on which kind is best for your home if you’re not sure.

It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. Since sunlight needs to get into each cell, plexiglass coverings are perfect ways to protect the cells from the elements and still allow full sun exposure to the cells. You’ll want to remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled through as well. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells. Your entire house, if you have enough solar panels, can actually be powered if positioned and used in the proper way. You can also heat your home using the electricity from the solar panels which can save you money every winter.
