It’s Not Difficult to Install Solar Panels
In the future solar energy will be the main source our consumable energy. Many experts agree that there is no end in sight, at least not any time soon, for the sustainability of solar energy as a “green” energy source that won’t have a negative impact on our environment. Additionally, the fact that it’s free, except for installation costs is another factor that will probably see many homeowners switching over to this form of energy source.
First of all, solar panels are receptacles for solar cells that you will use. In some scientific way, electricity is created by the solar cells from sunlight. Silicone material is used when creating solar cells, a material that will actually generate electricity when sunlight is applied. Only a half of a volt of power per cell is generated from sunlight necessitating the use of many solar panels to provide electricity. The thought of being able to eliminate your electric bill is what causes many people to make solar panels on their own with the hope of replacing all of their electrical needs. DIY experts will probably have no problem at all creating their very own solar panels at home as long as you have a soldering iron.
Your simple box with a plexiglass front will allow sunlight in but will ensure the protection of the cells. To attach the cells to the box, you will need to glue some strips of wood inside the box, also known as substrate, onto which you will glue the solar cells. Only use a dot of caulk in the center of the cell because wood tends to expand and shrink with the weather. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. After you have pushed the wires through the hole that you drilled make sure that you have filled it with caulk. Lastly, screw your plexiglass on.
The cost of installing a solar panel system plays on many people’s minds, which is why they’ve not taken action yet. They fear that the expense will be too high compared to the savings they can make on their electric bill. But you can cut the costs by simply making your very own solar panels. In fact, you can cut the cost down to about half and you can find most of what you need online, including solar cells which can be found on sites such as eBay. 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 simply because the government would like people to use energy sources that are clean, so they will give generous tax breaks to builders who create homes with solar panel systems.
All it takes to build your own solar panel is a little skill with the tools. Using your home built solar panels you could be powering your entire home with sunlight.
