Install Solar Panels to Cut Costs
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. Solar energy is a source of energy that will be around for billions of years according to experts because it’s clean, causing no negative impact on the environment. Another factor to consider is the fact that, aside from initial setup and installation, solar energy is free which will hold some appeal to homeowners.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. Do It Yourself skills are important if you are looking to build your own solar panel. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. To attach your solar cells to the wooden container you can use caulk. If you can find solar cells that already have the tabs on them it will make wiring them up easier. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. The plexiglass will have to be screwed on and mounted where you want it.
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 is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead.
As you can see, building a solar panel requires a bit of skill with tools but it is something anyone can do. It will not take that long to get your solar panel up and running and powering you entire home with sunlight.
