There are many solar panels which are available in the market today, they are made of high quality and processed silicon. A lot or people nowadays are making their own solar panels though, not only they want to reduce the electricity cost but also they are building for fun. Probably, the question that you would want to ask and have an answer is how to build your own solar panel. Read on to discover more about this.
Save Money with Energy Devices
Making use of do it yourself homemade solar panel guides, which are available on the internet today, or you can also make use of kits which are easily available at electric stores nowadays, solar panels are easily made. This is easy when you have an experience in fixing up electrical equipment at home but if you have a good guide, then there would not be a problem either.
You need to make use of photovoltaic cells because these are extremely light in weight, and are easy to transport from one place to another, first and foremost. Then you have to choose on where you plan to make the solar panels and install it. Preferably, good places to install these are at the backyard, garden, or on the flat rooftop because they are the places that can receive the largest amount of sunlight available.
Then you can now start the procedure of making your own solar panels once you have chosen the exact location. Firstly, photovoltaic cells are in place on the floor of the roof, garden, or the backyard, or any place you have chosen in making your own solar panel. These cells must be stacked one after the other and in horizontal way and must be installed in an angle from the sun so as to capture the maximum amount of sunlight and be able to store it inside.
Now how can this produce electricity? There is this red cuprous oxide, a material type named a semiconductor which is an insulator where electrons are bound tightly to their atoms and do not flow freely, and a conductor, where electricity can run freely. Electricity is conducted when the sunlight hits the cuprous oxide making it hit the electrons then some of these electrons gain enough energy to jump past the bandgap. These electrons then move into the saltwater then into the clean copper sheet to the wire, then through the meter, and then go back into the red cuprous oxide sheet, power is now then generated.
You contribute in saving the Earth from the damages that people have done but you are also helping yourself in paying too high electric bills when you build your own solar panel. Having solar panels at home have various of advantages, just think of it and build your own.
