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

Solar power is an amazing form of clean energy because it is relatively inexpensive and will never run out. Well, not for the next 4 billion years at least, which is how long the sun is expected to live. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. But how exactly do solar panels work? Well, read on to find out.

The solar energy panels are quite expensive initially, making this a major consideration for many, who may be skeptical of the savings over time. 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. Don’t overlook the likelihood of needing wood glue or other adhesives such as silicone caulk available to aide in box assembly and solar panel attachment.

This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. Wood will expand and shrink with the changes in the weather. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Then, screw your Plexiglas on and mount it where you want.

Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder a diode first. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. On the other hand, if you are using a charge controller then this step is not necessary. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. This is a task that only requires patience, materials and perseverance to succeed in making your own solar panel to save energy.
