Don’t Think Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Too Difficult For You
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. This energy supply is really limitless and will continue on for many lifetimes. Several companies are now offering incentives that slash the costs of solar panels allowing most people to benefit from this cheap energy source. But how exactly do solar panels work? This article details this exact process.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. Some of the items that you will need to build your own solar panels are, solar cells, wood for the container and some plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. Most people probably think it’s quite difficult to get hold of these but they can easily be found on eBay. However, don’t make the mistake of buying cells simply because they are cheap. A good quality cell is necessary, you don’t want to make the mistake of getting a damaged cell group if you intend to have a higher energy production. Ultimately, you want to have a solar cell that is graded above “grade B” level without ever going below that standard. 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. Each solar cell costs about $2 so you won’t go broke on them.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. This way, power will only be able to flow from the solar cells to the batteries and not the other way around. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
