Building Your Own Solar Panel Isn’t Nearly As Hard As You Might Think
Before electricity and central heating, the sun was the only source of energy for the earth and this was enough to allow human civilization to flourish. We obviously depend on the sun to heat our planet, but there are actually many diverse ways this energy can be harnessed for our daily use. Luckily, homeowners can take advantage of this energy with the help of solar panel systems that convert this energy into electricity.
Solar panels are not that difficult to build at home. You will have to have some “Do It Yourself” skills, to build your own solar panels. Basically, you will need solar cells, which can be found online, wood to build the container, Plexiglas for the cover and some equipment. Caulk should be used to attach the solar cells to the wooden container. For wiring made easy, try to find solar panels that already have the tabs on them. Before you glue your solar panels in place you will have to solder tab on, if you are unable to find panels that have the tabs on them.
When researching solar panels, you have to take into consideration the area you are living in and the amount of sunlight you get. Whether you get a concentrating solar collector or a non-concentrating collector will depend on your needs.
If you get enough sunlight all year, a concentrating solar collector would be ideal for you, as these can make good use of direct sunlight. Non-concentrating solar collectors are able to absorb sunlight both directly and from reflection, making them ideal for areas that receive a lot less direct sunlight. You could have a company that specializes in installing solar panels advise you on which kind is best for your home if you’re not sure.
The reason for a number of people not taking any action is because the price of installing solar panels worries them. They are worried that installing solar panels will cost more than they’ll save. The good news is, though, that you can reduce your costs by making your own solar panels at home. 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. And in addition to this, if you do some research you may find that the area you live in provides tax incentives and special rebates for installing solar panels. The reason for this is the government wants people to use clean energy sources, so they are willing to give builders tax breaks if they create energy efficient homes with solar panels.
Because solar panel systems are good for the environment and cost-effective they will most certainly be the future of energy production in the home. Therefore getting them installed sooner rather than later will enable you to save more money.
