How to Build Your Own Solar Panel
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. 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.
Mounting a solar panel on top of your home allows you to receive solar energy that can be used for many purposes, such as lighting and heating your home and giving you hot water. Your utility bills can be reduced or even eliminated by doing this.
While there is a cost involved to actually install solar panels, this can be offset by rebates or tax breaks that are available in many places. Like many other forms of technology, solar panels are getting more affordable as they get ever more advanced and more people install them. Considering that you can also install solar panels yourself, you can save even more money and then be able to enjoy an energy source no one can control or take away from you as long as the sun is shining. Making a solar panel at home means that you will need solar cells because a panel is simply a collection of solar cells mounted in a container of some sort. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them on Ebay. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. You still need a quality cell group that’s not damaged in order to maximize your energy output. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per 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.
A nifty device that sits between the battery and the solar panel is called the charge controller. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. Likewise, if the batteries are fully charged, it will stop allowing power to flow into them to avoid damage. 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. You can also heat your home using the electricity from the solar panels which can save you money every winter.
