Building your own solar panel can be easy.
The sun is by far the most powerful source of energy for our planet; did you know that in only an hour the earth can receive enough energy from the sun to meet our power needs for a whole year? When you know how to make use of solar energy, it has many practical applications in your home for daily life. With easy to install solar panels, it’s possible to get heat and electricity you can use for all of your power requirements.
One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels. All you need to do this really is a 12 V battery for storage and a solar panel to create electricity. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. In fact, with a little research you can find these batteries very cheaply or even for free. Storing electricity is only part of the process; you must convert this electricity into AC to be used at home or in your garage. This means you should get a true sine wave or modified energy converter. More than likely, you will want to use your appliances at home which requires purchasing a true sine wave inverter to convert electricity. Though more expensive, only the true sine wave device can create genuine AC electricity.
The items you need to build solar panels aren’t hard to find if you prefer to do it yourself; you could order everything you need online or shop in local stores. The solar cells you buy are the central element of your solar panels, so this is the first thing to consider. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.
The usual ratio to keep in mind is that eighty solar cells will generate approximately one hundred watts of electricity. Depending on how large your home is and how much solar power you want to generate, you can calculate the size of your solar panels and how many you should build. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
