Build your own solar panels for your home is the idea in most of the people who are creative and has little knowledge about solar panels. So if you want to build your solar panels for your home you need accessories like solar cells, mounting panels and circuit for an inverter to convert the DC to AC.
You can make some of your own solar cells or you can buy the solar cells online for a few bucks. Solar cells made in the factory by the company are good to build your own solar panels for your home. But some of the solar cells bought through online will have many impurities in them and causes various problems during the generation of power. The glass with which the solar cells are made will be brittle and tends to break easily. So you need to carefully select the solar cells. Some home-made solar cells are usually copper plates heated to form copper oxide and then use salt water, but these are just temporary.
Once you are done with the selection of the solar cells you need to mount them so that they collect the light from the sun and produce energy. If you are planning to build your own solar panels for your home you need to select a proper platform for mounting. You should never be using any wooden platform for mounting the solar panels. The solar panel should be mounted in such a way that they should be able to collect the light when the sun is in any direction. The best suited platforms are aluminum and other materials. When you are planning to cover the solar panel with a sheet of glass you need to choose thick glass as it won’t break so fast. Pure glass without any defect is preferable as the presence of impurities will not allow the light to fall on the solar cells. And make sure there s no moisture content between the glass and the solar cells.
The basic role of the inverter is to convert the DC to AC current. So when you are planning to build your own solar panels for your home you need to have a little knowledge in soldering and connecting the circuits. You need some tools like wires, crocodile clips, and a meter to check current and voltage. The solar cells are joined together in series connection, this connection will increase the power generated. And all these are connected to an inverter and then connected to a battery for storing this energy. You need to check all the connection properly before connecting to the mains. You should be very careful in using the inverter and the battery. If you build your own solar panels for your home you need to have proper guidance and then proper safety to install and run this system. A controller must be used to avoid any kind of accidents while connection or using the solar power sources.
