How to Build Your Own Solar Panel
While we’re accustomed to many types of energy and technology, the only power source we couldn’t live without is the sun. Today, we’re learning more sophisticated ways to benefit from the sun; solar energy is often the cheapest way to provide energy for our homes. Modern solar panels enable you to create electricity in a simple and cost effective manner.
Many people think that building your own solar panels at home is difficult. 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 can find solar cells online, and you will need wood to build a container and plexiglass for the cover. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. If you have a 12 V battery, similar to those found in most vehicles, you are in luck as these are necessary to store the electricity generated by solar panels. Probably the safest route to go is to use a lead acid battery which can easily store the charge. A large part of the cost of creating a solar solution for your electricity bill can be avoided by finding cheap or free batteries. This electricity needs to be converted, so you will need to have a power inverter to convert the energy to be used around your house. To do this, you need to purchase sine wave converters to get the job done. To get 60 MHz electricity, like out of your outlet, you must purchase or have a true sine wave inverter. Of course, these models are more expensive than their modified counterparts, are well worth the cost.
The only connections that you will need will be for the battery. Charge your batteries using your solar panels. Sometime during the night you could be wasting power. This is not a necessary step when you choose to use a charge controller instead.
Solar panels are going to be the future of electricity production in the home because they’re not just cost-effective, they are also helpful to the environment. So, the sooner you get them installed, the more money you can save on electricity.
