It is easy to build your own solar panel.
Many people are switching to solar energy because it is less expensive to develop and its energy source comes from the sun. Solar energy, after all, is going to last for billions of years. Clean energy, as solar energy is referred to, is relatively cheap to invest into because of the rebates and incentives that are offered. So how do solar panels really work? This article details this exact process.
Most people worry about the initially high cost of the solar panels, which is the number one reason for not making the switch. All you need is some basic tools, an imagination, and the internet to create your own less expensive version of solar panels to achieve the same effect. It may surprise you to find that many of the products you already have in your home can be used to create a simple solar panel design, for instance, you probably own a saw, drill, screwdriver and a wooden container of some sort. You will also need some silicone caulk and wood glue to put the container together and attach the solar cells.
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. Just a dot of silicone caulk in the center of the cell will keep the cells steady when the wood expands or shrinks. To avoid damaging your solar cell consider using a single dot of silicone caulk to keep the wood free of encumbrances. To make sure that no moisture gets in make sure that you fill the hole with caulk after you have pushed the wires through. Your solar panel is almost complete, just mount your plexiglass with screws.
If you want to build your own solar panels, it is quite possible and easy to do at home, especially since you can find everything you need on eBay. When building solar panels, you have to start with solar cells that are powerful enough for your needs. You’ll get more power from superior solar cells of course.
On average, 80 solar cells will produce about 100 watts of electricity. The size of your solar panels and how many of them you’ll need will depend on how much power you want to get out of them. 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. All you really need is patience, materials and desire to tackle the task.
