Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Where energy is concerned this “green energy” known as solar energy will likely outlive many other energy sources according to experts and it’s ability to avoid negative impact on the environment makes it that much more appealing to those of us who are environmentally conscious. 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.
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. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. You’ll also need some caulk to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. To make your life easier when you are doing the wiring you need to try and find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, 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. If you are worried that you might not find these cells very easy take a look online at places like Ebay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. It is imperative that you get a quality cell capable of maximizing your energy output for greater cost savings and energy production. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. 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.
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. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. This step can be replaced by an alternative action consisting of the use of a control charger You must place solar panels on top of your building or home so that they can receive sunlight and power your home at the same time. People use solar panels to heat their homes, especially if they live in a region that is particularly cold.
