You Might Think Building A Solar Panel Is Difficult, Think Again
To cut cost, more and more people are turning to solar energy. The expense of the solar panels would be offset by the savings on your electricity bill. If you build your own solar panels you could save up to half the cost. This article has some of the most important aspects that you will need to know about building your own solar panels.
If you want to see how easy it is to build your own solar panels at home, read this article. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. You will need some equipment as well as solar panels, wood for the 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. When buying solar cells, try to find ones that already have tabs as it will make your life easier when you are doing the wiring. Make sure that you get solar panels with tabs, otherwise you will have to solder on tabs before you glue them in place. You will need to have solar cells since making a solar panel isn’t much more than mounting solar cells in a container of some type. Never let a naysayer tell you that these are hard to find, in today’s market just about anything you might need can be found on Ebay. On the other hand, you still need to be careful and avoid purchasing cells simply because they are below what you expected to find them for. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. For this reason it is imperative for you to avoid any solar cell that is of grade B or lower quality. You can usually expect to generate 100 watts of power from every 100 solar cells and there are somewhere around 36 of them in one solar panel. As you can probably imagine, you need many of these cells, fortunately they are not pricey with a cost of only $2.00 each.
A component, the charge controller, must be placed between the solar panel and the battery for the following reasons. To maintain your battery life over time, and to properly charge them each and every day, you need to use charge controllers. It also controls the direction of the flow of electricity from the solar panel to the battery and only in that direction. This will help you prevent overcharging which can cause damage to your batteries over time. You will indeed need to have some do it yourself know how to complete this task but it’s not nearly as difficult as most people thought. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
