With a minimum investment, you can save a considerable amount of money each month. That is the reason why millions of people are turning their attention on do-it-yourself solar panels projects. If you wish to create your own, here is the step-by step process to make DIY solar panels.
First of all, you need is to get a 16-volt solar panel which suits your needs. It is not at all difficult to find a panel like this because you can find the parts at the local hardware store. Normally, this panel cost not more than $100.
The next thing you need to get is a battery. For this a small rechargeable battery would be best. You should look for a 12 volt deep cell acid or lead battery as they are good for constant use.
You should also purchase a battery box for safety purpose if in case you build your DIY solar panels in a very small area or have children around the area. Having the battery box will provide protection from the battery and the power it emanates.
Another thing you need is a DC meter that complements the battery’s voltage and a DC input. With the help of these items you can convert the energy from the panel and supply power around your home. You will also need an inverter to power AC appliances.
After you had finished with the above work, it is the time to attach the meter and DC input to the top end of the battery box. You should use some insulated wires to attach the meter to the battery. It is safe to work with one wire at a time and attach the first wire to negative input first. Same procedure goes when connecting the solar panel and DC inlet to the battery.
Now you may begin harnessing the sun’s power into usable energy. In order to close the lid tightly and put the whole thing out into the sun, use a cord. You will need eight hours to charge the solar panel and after this you are ready to use home made energy.
