You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
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. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
One of the biggest benefits of installing solar panels is that you will be producing your own energy and will no longer need to rely on the public electric grid. You will at the very least be able to save on your electricity bills, and you may even be able to drastically reduce them. 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.
The kind of solar panels you get will depend on where you live, as the climate and amount of sunlight received varies from place to place. Depending on the amount of sunlight you get, you may be better off with a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector.
If you get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. If, however, you only get a limited amount of sunlight, a non-concentrating solar collector would be a better choice, as these can also absorb reflected sunlight. If you have any doubt about which type would work best for you home, you should ask someone with experience in this field.
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. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. You can use whatever type of wood you like but plywood is a great option for the back. Cover the container with plexiglass, you may also want to put a bit of wood inside the box to hold the cells in place. That plexiglass cover will allow sunlight to be absorbed by the cells while remaining protected from the elements. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder. 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. 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.
