Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
Solar panels will not only help you to reduce your costs, but it’s good for the environment. Most of the electricity being produced today is done through processes that have a significantly negative impact on the environment, through 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. Some fuels, like oil, will eventually run out, however because solar power uses sunlight to create electricity it will never run out. The positive effects on the environment might not be visible right away but the more people use clean energy sources, the better the environment will fair. The long-term effects will be immense, and the next generations will see these effects. 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.
Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder a diode first. Power will flow from the solar cells to the batteries. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. It’s really no harder than knowing what materials you’ll need, obtaining them before you begin and having the patience to complete the task.
