It is easy to build your own solar panel.
Because of the state of the global economy, many people are turning to solar energy. Some people may be thinking that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, but the expense will be quickly offset by savings made on the electricity bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. This article is a comprehensive guide to build your own solar panels.
To explain this, let’s think of solar panels as a box that holds solar cells together. The energy that solar cells produce from sunlight is electricity. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. People that purchase solar panels need to buy a lot of them because each cell only produces half of a volt of electricity. You can actually make your own solar panel at home and it doesn’t really cost much, especially since then you will be able to enjoy the benefits of free electricity. For those of you that are not very handy with tools, it is recommended that you obtain help from your family that can help you with sawing and soldering wires. You need to be able to hook up your solar panel, once it is finished, to a 12 V battery to store the energy. Storing electricity is just like recharging your batteries, except you are using a 12 V battery with a solar panel. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. If you already have a modified sine wave or true sine wave power inverter, you can use this energy. More than likely, you will want to use your appliances at home which requires purchasing a true sine wave inverter to convert electricity. By spending a few extra dollars on the right inverter, you will be able to use your electricity in your home.
Batteries will need to be connected and you may want to solder a diode first. Power will flow from the solar cells to the batteries. Having your batteries power your solar panels is a waste of energy. This step can be replaced by an alternative action consisting of the use of a control charger
When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? If things do take a turn for the worst, having a renewable energy source that is free and allows you to be independent from the public grid might just prove invaluable.
