Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
More and more people are turning to solar energy in an effort to cut costs, especially with the current state of the global economy. 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 has some of the most important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
The solar panel itself is essentially a container that holds solar cells. These solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. One solar cell can generate about 0.5 volts of power, which is why a solar panel is made up of numerous solar cells. 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. If you are good at do-it-yourself projects, more than likely you will be able to create and soldered together your very own solar panels.
The plexiglass is for protection of your cells. Glue is used to attach the cells to the box, and you will need to glue some wood strips inside the box. You should only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. Drill a hole in the box to feed your wires through, but make sure that you fill it with caulk when you are done to prevent moisture from getting to your solar cells. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
Many people are worried about the cost of installing a solar panel system which is why they haven’t yet taken any action. They feel that they may not save any money due to the costs of these systems. There is some good news though, you can create your own solar panels at home. Actually, you can reduce the cost by half and you can find nearly everything you need online, which includes solar cells. Additionally, if you do a little research, some areas offer tax incentives and rebates if you install a solar panel system, which can be quite significant. The reason for this is the government wants people to use clean energy sources, so they are willing to give builders tax breaks if they create energy efficient homes with solar panels. 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. Likewise, solar panels can also be connected to the heating system and you can then heat your home with the help of solar power.
