How to Build Your Own Solar Panel
In an effort to cut energy costs, more and more people are using solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. Building your own solar panels for half the price is good news. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
Many people are worried about the cost of solar panels, which is why they haven’t yet made the switch from standard electricity providers to this form of clean energy. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. Perhaps one of the easiest solar panel designs to create is done with a wood container, a saw, a drill and a screwdriver. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells.
The kind of solar panels you get will depend on where you live, as the climate and amount of sunlight received varies from place to place. Depending on the amount of sunlight you get, you may be better off with a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector.
Concentrating solar collectors are panel that need to be positioned in such a way that they get the maximum possible amount of direct sunlight, meaning that they are the best option for areas that get a lot of sunlight year round. If you don’t get that much sun, however, you can still benefit from solar power with a non-concentrating solar collector, which can operate from reflected as well as direct sunlight. There are many people or companies who could tell you, based on your location, which type of solar panel is best for you; even if you want to install them yourself, you could call someone to get this information.
Solar panels usually come with charge controllers, which are positioned between the solar panel and the battery. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. To prevent any chargeback to the solar panel from the battery, these gadgets must be used. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage. Conventional installation of solar panels requires positioning them on top of your living quarters, and using that electricity for your appliances and other needs. The cost of heating your home will dramatically reduce, especially if you use your solar panels to power your heating system.
