Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Easier Than You Think
Solar panels have many advantages, especially since they provide clean energy by harnessing the natural elements of the planet. Additionally, they’re a source of energy that will never run out, which is called a renewable energy source. You may have been wondering whether or not you should get solar panels installed, in which case I recommend you continue to read to learn more about this wonderful energy source.
The main reason statistically speaking, that more people have not made the switch yet is the high cost of the panels for solar energy. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. You may also need some silicone caulking and/or wood glue to assemble the wooden container and attach the solar cells. 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. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like Ebay. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. 100 solar cells can produce an average o9f 100 watts of power, you’ll find approximately 36 of these in each solar panel. You may be surprised to find out that these cells aren’t as expensive as you might have thought, in fact only about $2 each.
The diodes should be soldered before you attach your panels to the batteries. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. The latter would mean a waste of power and it can happen during the night. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.
Anyone can built a solar panel if you have some skills with tools. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
