The number of people who want to learn how to make solar panels on their own is increasing day by day. One of the obvious reasons is that the pre-made solar panels at local stores are extremely expensive. They may cost you anywhere from $2000 to $3000 or even more. When I look at the price tags, I nearly cry. However the most significant reason for people to learn this skill is that they prices of fuel and oil are also skyrocketing day by day. No one wants to rely on those sources of energy anymore and the only solution is to employ solar power for homes and learn how to make solar panels in to save extra money.
It is very simple to build a homemade solar panel. You can get every part, like solar cell, at your local store. Basically you will need to get a sheet of plywood, a sheet of glass, copper wiring and solar cells at the beginning. They are the most vital parts for your first DIY solar panel. Of course, if you can invest more, you may want to purchase some miscellaneous like finish trim, screws and caulking. They will be nice to your solar panels.
But the most important thing you have to get is the proper instructions on the whole process. There is no point to have all parts but have no idea on how to make them together. So first and foremost you may need to do some research online. You may search for DIY solar power house guides and you will be provided ebooks and videos for the step-by-step instructions, from finding the parts at the most cost-effective price to installing the whole solar power system.
The DIY solar power house guide I bought is quite good and I could build my first solar panel in just a weekend. Even though when I had questions, I would be answered in their private membership forum in 24 hours.
And now, although I have a functional solar power system for my house and I am reducing 80% of my electric bills every month, I do not stop making solar panels. It is because some of my friends always ask me to make solar panels for them, their family and even their own friends. Most of them are busy people and it is hard for them to spend 2 full days to learn how to make solar panels. So when I told them I could get the job done for under $200, they just felt glad and asked me for help. And surely I am willing to help because I believe my little effort can make our environment cleaner and lessen air pollution.
There is no reason why you cannot do the same thing. You just have to be brave and get a DIY solar power house guide online. Then you will successfully make solar panels after a week.
