It’s Not Difficult to Install Solar Panels
In an effort to cut energy costs, more and more people are using solar energy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. There is good news about building solar panels. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells. Making a solar panel at home means that you will need solar cells because a panel is simply a collection of solar cells mounted in a container of some sort. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Power will flow from the solar cells to the batteries. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. 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. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
