Make Your Home Energy Efficient With Solar Panels

To cut cost, more and more people are turning to solar energy. However, some are worried that the cost of installing solar panels will be too high, even though it is an expense that would quickly be offset by savings made on the electricity bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. Use this article as a guide to building your own solar panels.

One way to look at this is that solar cells are contained in things called solar panels. To get electricity, solar cells take sunlight and converts it into energy. The creation of electricity using sunlight happens when the rays of the sun hit the silicone solar cells making electricity manifest. Although the energy comes freely from the sun, less than 1 V of electricity per cell is generated which means a lot of panels are needed to replace your energy needs. There are many kits available and instruction manuals to show people how to make their own solar panels so that they can have free electricity as well. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron.

The container for your solar panel is simply a box with a Plexiglas front, which will allow sunlight to flow in but will ensure that the cells are protected. You will glue your solar cells to the substrate, which are the strips of wood that you glue to the inside of your box. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. Solar cells can be damaged if the wood shifts, that is why you need to use a dot of caulk. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Decide where you want to put your plexiglass and then screw it all together.

Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with your solar panels. Because wood is often easier to work with it is often the material of choice when building solar panels. Your local hardware and lumber store can direct you to many types of woods available although the final choice is yours You’ll need wood inside the box that can hold the cells separate as well as a plexiglass covering for the box. This way sunlight can reach the cells but they will be protected from the elements. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. Once you mount the solar cells, you will need to do a bit of soldering to connect the cells to each other.

Without a doubt, solar panels are definitely the future for producing energy in the home, not just because they’re cost-effective but they’re also good for the environment. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
