Even You Can Build Your Own Solar Panel With Ease
Before electricity and central heating, the sun was the only source of energy for the earth and this was enough to allow human civilization to flourish. While this form of energy arrives as heat and light, that doesn’t mean it can’t be converted into a usable form of energy. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
Building your own solar panels at home isn’t as difficult as many people think. If you know how to use a soldering iron and are handy with a saw you can build your own solar panels in no time. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the container and plexiglass for the cover. Caulk should be used 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. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place.
This plexiglass cover is used to protect the cells from the elements as well as provide an inlet for ample sunlight for charging the cells. The substrate is what you will use to glue your solar cells to. Because the wood will shrink and expand with the weather, you should use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell. To prevent damage to your solar cell, use just a single dot of caulk which will allow the wood to shift. Once the caulk has set, all you need to do is to drill a hole in the box for the wires but make sure to fill it with caulk after you have pushed the wires through to make sure that no moisture gets in. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
Many people don’t take any action because they’re worried about the cost of installing solar panels. Their main worry is that the expenses will be very high when compared with the saving they’ll make on their electricity bill. The good news is, though, that you can reduce your costs by making your own solar panels at home. In fact, you’ll be able to reduce the costs by around 50%, and the internet is a good place to find most of the equipment needed, including solar cells which are available on eBay and other similar sites. Additionally, if you do a little research, some areas offer tax incentives and rebates if you install a solar panel system, which can be quite significant. This is due to the government wanting as many people as possible to use clean energy, so they don’t mind giving large tax breaks to builders who are willing to install solar panels in new homes.
The tools will require some skill, but it is something that anyone can do. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
