Building your own solar panel can be easy.
With the state of the global economy, more and more people are turning to solar energy. The expense of the solar panels would be offset by the savings on your electricity bill. It will cost you about half the price to build your own solar panels. This article has some of the most important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. These solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. The process itself involves photons hitting electrons in the silicone material on the solar cells, which become electricity. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. Once the battery has stored enough electricity, you can use the energy by hooking up a power inverter to convert it to AC. You need to get one of the following power inverters which includes modified and true sine wave devices. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. Only a true sine wave inverter, not a modified sine wave device, will convert the energy properly, but at a higher price.
Everything required to build solar panels can be found on the internet or at a home improvement store, so you may want to think about doing it yourself. When building solar panels, you have to start with solar cells that are powerful enough for your needs. If you want to get the maximum amount of solar power, then, you need the best possible solar cells.
It takes about 80 solar cells to generate 100 watts of electricity, so you have to consider this ratio when figuring out your needs. 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. While you will need to have some DIY skills to be able to make your own solar panels, it isn’t as difficult as many people think. If you are serious about saving money, this is a project easy enough for even the novice to complete once the materials are rounded up and the patience to succeed is wrangled into production.
