Building your own solar panel can be easy.

In an effort to cut energy costs, more and more people are using solar energy. Installing solar panels will be high, but the expense will quickly be off set by the amount you will be saving on your electric bill. There is good news about building solar panels. There are many important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.

Many people are worried about the cost of solar panels, which is why they haven’t yet made the switch from standard electricity providers to this form of clean energy. However, the good news is that it probably isn’t as expensive as you think, and you can actually build your own solar panels at home with some basic tools and parts that are all available via the internet. The simplest design for a solar panel is using a wood container, which means that you will need some simple woodworking tools like a saw, a drill and a screwdriver, which you probably already own. You may want to consider having wood glue and silicone caulking handy in order to be able to assemble your wooden box and attach your solar panel cells to it. An extra 12 V car battery, and some proper wiring, is necessary to hook up to your solar panels to store the energy. A plain old lead acid battery, which is very affordable, is what you’ll need. Some institutions provide these batteries for free which is something you should look into if you are going to need a lot of them. This electricity must be converted into alternating current, which means you will need a power inverter to be able to use what you have stored. You need to get one of the following power inverters which includes modified and true sine wave devices. To replicate the comforts of home, a true sine wave inverter is what you need to have actual alternating current. It is a little more expensive than the modified sine wave, but it’s worth paying a little extra in the long run.

In terms of connections, if you are going to be connecting your solar panel to batteries, you might want to solder on a diode first. Using batteries will allow the solar cells to power the batteries and not the other way around. To avoid wasting energy make sure that your solar panels are sending power to your batteries and not the other way around. However, for those who choose to use a charge controller this step is not necessary.

When you look at economic conditions and how expensive oil and other traditional energy sources are getting, doesn’t it makes sense to seek alternatives? Solar energy gives you a viable option that frees you from being dependent on the power companies, no matter what happens in the future.
