Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
The future of solar energy is certain to be long and adventurous. 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.
Solar cells are contained within boxes called solar panels. The conversion of simple sunlight by the solar cells is how they create electricity. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. One solar cell can generate about 0.5 volts of power, which is why a solar panel is made up of numerous solar cells. Solar panels can actually be made at home; many people make them in an attempt to reduce or eliminate their electrical bill. Whether you ask a family member for help, or if you are good at soldering wires, this is something you should really try to do.
In addition to you being able to save money you will also be helping the environment. Most of the electricity being produced today is done through processes that have a significantly negative impact on the environment, through waste and pollution. On the other hand, producing energy with a solar power system doesn’t harm the environment at all and there are no by-products either. Some fuels, like oil, will eventually run out, however because solar power uses sunlight to create electricity it will never run out. The good effects it has on the environment aren’t always noticeable immediately, but the more people who use energy sources that are clean the healthier the environment will be. The effects that will take place in the long-term will be wonderful, and the future generations will be able to feel them. But at the rate of destruction we’re currently going at, our children and grandchildren wouldn’t be able to experience the environment like how we do today.
If you are doing all of this yourself, it’s important to remember that a solar panel is essentially a set of solar cells grouped within a container, which you will need to create for your solar panels. 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 wood type suits your fancy but we can recommend the usage of plywood. You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover the box. Since sunlight needs to get into each cell, plexiglass coverings are perfect ways to protect the cells from the elements and still allow full sun exposure to the cells. It’s important that you remember to drill a whole for the wires to be pulled out of. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells. For many who believed it impossible or expensive to tackle this task it’s often surprising to see just how inexpensive building your own solar panel really can become. This is a task that only requires patience, materials and perseverance to succeed in making your own solar panel to save energy.
