The Reasons That Solar Panels Are Important

Solar panels offer many benefits because they create clean energy by using the natural elements of our planet. The fact that they are a renewable energy source, meaning that it isn’t a resource that will run out, is an added bonus. If you’ve contemplated installing solar panels but you’re still undecided it would be a good idea to read on to find out more about this great source of energy.

Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. 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. To build your own solar panels you will need just a few basic items. You will have to use caulk to attach your solar cells to your wooden container. Pre-tabbed solar cells will make the wiring easier. If you can not find solar panels with tabs you will have to solder on the tabs before you glue them in place. 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. You need good quality cells that aren’t damaged because the better they are the more energy they produce. If the solar cells you find on Ebay are rated at or below grade “B” avoid them. One solar panel is made up of an average of 36 solar cells, each solar cell can produce 100 watts of power. For an average cost of $2 each these cells can be called rather inexpensive compared to what you might have been thinking.

Since solar panels are essentially a set of solar cells within a container, you will need to make a container if you are taking the DIY route with your solar panels. Solar panels containers can be made of any number of materials although the ease of workmanship makes wood the obvious choice for such a project. For the back of the solar panel, plywood is a great choice although there are many other types of wood that are also acceptable. You will also need to put some wood inside the box to hold the cells and plexiglass to cover 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. Now that you have the cells mounted it becomes necessary to connect each to the next using a bit of solder. Although it does require a small amount of do it yourself know how, building your own solar panel really isn’t that hard after all. If you are serious about saving money, this is a project easy enough for even the novice to complete once the materials are rounded up and the patience to succeed is wrangled into production.
