To build your own solar panel read this article.
Solar energy is undoubtedly the future. It is an energy source that will last another 4 billion years according to experts and is completely clean, meaning that it has no negative impact on the environment. Homeowner’s will consider this energy source seriously once they realize the cost of energy is reduced to zero after the initial installation and setup costs are incurred making it a viable source of heat and energy needs for an average household.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. Of course, you do need to have some DIY skills, in that you need to be handy with a soldering iron and to be able to handle a saw, but other than that you can have a solar panel ready in no time at all. You can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. You will need to use silicon caulk or wood glue of some type to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them. You should consider having your solar cells available in order to create your homemade solar panel by putting them all together in the box or container of your choice to create your solar panel. Many people think it’s too hard to find solar cells but the reality is you can easily find them on Ebay. But, you’ll want to avoid making the mistake of purchasing a cell just because you find them cheap. A good quality cell is necessary, you don’t want to make the mistake of getting a damaged cell group if you intend to have a higher energy production. Therefore, you want to avoid any solar cells that are “grade B” or lower. You will generate about 100 watts of power for every 100 solar cells you have in your solar panel which usually averages around 36 per panel. You may be surprised to find out that these cells aren’t as expensive as you might have thought, in fact only about $2 each.
With the DIY method of solar panel creation your will need to create a box for the solar cells to rest in groups within when the desired outcome is a solar panel. 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 plexiglass covering serves two purposes, to protect the cells from the elements and also to allow sunlight to reach the cells too. Also, don’t forget to drill a hole in the box so you can pull the wires out. You can use solder to connect all of these cells together once you’ve mounted the solar cells.
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. Therefore getting them installed sooner rather than later will enable you to save more money.
