How to Build Your Own Solar Panel
Solar energy is the future of energy as we know it. 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. This means that you will be able to greatly reduce your electricity bills and even completely slash them in some cases. You can also earn some cash as in many areas the government will purchase any additional energy you create. But even if this scheme doesn’t happen where you live, you will still save a lot of money with solar panels.
The plexiglass is for protection of your cells. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. It’s imperative that you avoid damaging cells by using a single dot of this caulk to allow wood to shift. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.
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. Containers can be made out of a wide range of materials but the one that most people prefer is wood because it is easier to work with. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. 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. Solar panels are generally mounted on the roofs of homes or buildings and can be used to power anything from a single appliance to your entire home. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
