Don’t Think Building Your Own Solar Panel Is Too Difficult For You
Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. However, some are worried that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, even though it is an expense that would quickly be offset by savings made on the electricity bill. It will cost you about half the price to build your own solar panels. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
Undoubtedly one of the best benefits of installing solar panels is the fact that you’ll be making your own energy, so you won’t need to rely on the electric grid for power. This means that you may be able to drastically cut your electricity bills, but at the very least you’ll be able to cut them down a bit. Additionally, the government may buy any surplus electricity you produce which means that you can get paid for it. However, even if this is not the case where you live, the savings you can make by installing a solar panel system are enormous. If you have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. You can save hundreds of dollars by finding low-cost or free batteries in your area. This electricity needs to be converted, so you will need to have a power inverter to convert the energy to be used around your house. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. However, the best one is the one that creates the exact same type of electricity that comes out of the wall socket and that is the true sine wave. Though more expensive, only the true sine wave device can create genuine AC electricity.
You will need a container to put the series of solar cells that will make up your solar panel into if you are taking the do it yourself route. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. You can use whatever wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. It is recommended that you have some wood inside the box to separate the cells and hold them upright as well as a covering of plexiglass over the top too. Since sunlight needs to get into each cell, plexiglass coverings are perfect ways to protect the cells from the elements and still allow full sun exposure to the cells. 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. It is then necessary to connect the cells to one another via soldering.
It only takes some skills with tools and anyone can build a solar panel. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
