Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. However, some are worried that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, even though it is an expense that would quickly be offset by savings made on the electricity bill. It will cost you about half the price to build your own solar panels. While this article can’t possibly provide a comprehensive guide to building your own solar panel, we will look at some of the most important aspects.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. You can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. 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. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. Your overall energy output depends heavily on the quality of your cells so be sure you are getting a good quality product. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. 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 only connections that you will need will be for the battery. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.
Because solar panel systems are good for the environment and cost-effective they will most certainly be the future of energy production in the home. So by installing them sooner rather than later you can save more money on your electricity bills.
