How Solar Panels Operate To Help You

Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. The good news is that you can actually build your own solar panels for half the price. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.

Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. 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. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place.

When researching solar panels, you have to take into consideration the area you are living in and the amount of sunlight you get. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.

If you live in an area that gets quite a bit of sunlight throughout the year, you should get a concentrating solar collector, which can absorb a great deal of direct sunlight. Not everyone lives in a place that gets a lot of direct sunlight, though, and for anyone in this category a non-concentrating solar collector, which can absorb sunlight from reflection as well as directly, is the perfect choice. 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.

You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. 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. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. 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 need to have a hole in the box that will make it possible for you to get the wires pulled outside the box too. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder.

Without a doubt, solar panels are definitely the future for producing energy in the home, not just because they’re cost-effective but they’re also good for the environment. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
