Thinking If You can Build Solar Panels Yourself?

If you are searching for information on how to build solar panels, then you will need to first know how the system and various parts work together.  The technology that is used in solar panels is called Photovoltaic (PV) power systems.  This is a complete source of electricity that uses solar cells to turn the sun’s ray into electricity directly.  To understand how this technology works, the first thing I would suggest that you read up a few books on photovoltaic technology and solar energy.

To begin building solar panels, the very first thing to look for is the solar cells. These components can’t be made by youself.  I would recommend you try to look for these solar cells on eBay.  These cells are easily broken, you will need extra care when handling them.  If you plan to make solar plans to produce say eighteen volts of electricity, then I would suggest that you purchase thirty-six pieces of solar cells that each generates 0.5 volts and 3 amps of direct current.

In order to put all the pieces of the solar cells together, you will require a panel structure.  You can either buy one from your local hardware stores or make one yourself.  If you decide to purchase a read-made panel, you just need to tell the sales person the size of your solar cells and the measurements of your solar panel.   

For the front of the panel, you can choose to use either glass or pexiglass.  I would suggest that you go with pexiglass as glass is too easily broken.  Now you can begin to fix the solar cells onto the panel structure.  You would want to draw pencil grid lines on the positions that you are supposed to lay the solar cells.  Then you put the cells on the markings upside down and begin soldering them in a series so that  you get 18 volts in total.  The final step is to glue the cells onto the panel frame.  Remember to glue on the middle of the cells.

Now that you have learnt  how to build solar panels, you are probably wondering where you should install them so that they can generate the solar energy.  There are some options.  For examples, you can mount it on your rooftop of your house, the top of your boat, or even the rooftop of your holiday home and the possibilities are endless. 

Many people actually give up the thought of building solar panels when they can’t find the answers they need.  I know this can be very frustrating.  Luckily, there are some really good ebooks that give detailed instructions on how you can construct solar panels.  These ebooks typically come with full illustrations in the forms of pictures and diagrams to help to explain the steps clearly.  You don’t have to worry about buying a wrong product as these ebooks typically come with 60-days money back gurantee.  So in the event you are not happy with the result you get, you can ask for a refund.  However before you go ahead to buy one, I recommned that you go through the reviews on these solar panel ebooks.
