Building your own solar panel can be easy.
The sun is amazing, especially considering that the energy it puts out is so powerful that the amount our planet absorbs in one hour is enough to cover the energy needs of our planet for one year. Solar energy is one of the most practical and economical forms of energy when we know how to take advantage of it. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
It is not that difficult to build your own solar panels. You should know how to use a soldering iron and handle a saw, if you can do this your solar panels will be ready in no time. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Otherwise you will have to solder on 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. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. Stick with a solar cell that is above a “Grade B”. 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.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. The latter would mean a waste of power and it can happen during the night. This step may not be necessary if you choose to use a charge controller. While you will need to have some DIY skills to be able to make your own solar panels, it isn’t as difficult as many people think. If you are serious about saving money, this is a project easy enough for even the novice to complete once the materials are rounded up and the patience to succeed is wrangled into production.
