You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. When sunlight hits the silicone material in solar cells, an electrical process occurs. 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. The benefits of having no electric bill are great, which is why many people make their own solar panels at home on their own. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron.
Solar panel systems aren’t just a great way to save money, they are also a good way of helping to protect the environment. Most of the processes that occur when producing electricity have quite a large negative impact on the environment due to waste and pollution. On the other hand, producing energy with a solar power system doesn’t harm the environment at all and there are no by-products either. And because it uses the light from the sun to produce energy, it’s totally renewable so it won’t run out, whereas oil will. You might not be able to see the positive effects on the environment just yet, but if more people start using clean energy sources the environment will do much better. The future generations will be able to see the long-term effects, which will be incredible. But at the rate of destruction we’re currently going at, our children and grandchildren wouldn’t be able to experience the environment like how we do today.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Because it is easer to work with than many of the other options for container creation, wood is the most obvious and widely used material. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. Since sunlight needs to get into each cell, plexiglass coverings are perfect ways to protect the cells from the elements and still allow full sun exposure to the cells. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. It is then necessary to connect the cells to one another via soldering.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. So, you can soon have your own solar panel up and running and you might even end up powering your entire home with sunlight.
