How Solar Panels Operate To Help You

The reason that solar panels is so popular today is that the sun is an endless source of energy that we can rely upon. This energy supply is really limitless and will continue on for many lifetimes. With the help of solar panels, everyone can now enjoy the benefits of this cheap form of energy, especially since most areas provide tax incentives and rebates to people who switch to clean energy. The big question is how do these solar panels actually operate? This article details this exact process.

If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. 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. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. You still need to be aware of what you are buying and don’t buy them just because you find them for less money. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You can expect about 100 solar cells to produce approximately 100 watts of power and the average solar panel has 36 of these. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.

It is first necessary to realize that you will need a container in which to place your solar cells in order to create your own solar panels with the do it yourself method. 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 You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. This type of opaque covering protects the cells from damage due to the elements while still allowing necessary sunlight to reach each cell. You’ll need to have a hole in the box that will make it possible for you to get the wires pulled outside the box too. Use solder to connect the individual cells to one another after mounting is complete.

Without a doubt, solar panels are definitely the future for producing energy in the home, not just because they’re cost-effective but they’re also good for the environment. So, you can save more money by installing them sooner rather than later.
