It is possible to build your own solar system model without any prior knowledge of how it is done. All you need is a step-by-step guide to follow to make this a reality. You could build your own solar panel to power the whole of your home and live off the grid. An already made solar system model could cost up to $5,000 to $30000, but you would save a lot of money if you build it on your own. With as little as $500, you could build your own solar energy using a step-by-step guide with materials gotten through cheap sources, though very durable, to make your own DIY solar system.
Things you will need to build your own solar system model
The things as they pertains to your solar system are the tools and components to build the project. You must have all of them and there are ways to get for cheap, almost free. I will talk about that later on.
The things you require are:
You need a set of battery box
You need a DC meter.
You need an inverter.
You need a handheld drill.
You need a 20 volt solar panel.
I know you must be wondering where to get this tool and whether everything would still cover the $500 I promised earlier on. The short answer is this: write a list of the things you need and walk down to a scrap hardware store to buy them. It is possible to get them for cheap and the durable ones. The things above are not all need, but just get those ones first. After you have arranged all these tools, you can then follow the steps below to get rolling. The perfect place to do this project is your garage but any other place comfortable for you is okay.
First and foremost, get a mini solar panel which is only 20 volt or much higher. As a beginner or as a way to learn it first before building a bigger one, let us say 1000 watt which enough to power your own, 20 volt is okay.
It is really possible to see a panel of this type and the easiest way to get them fast is to visit a local RV mall or a mini marina could due. It is possible to see the type sold for $80 or even below that.
The second stuff you require is simply a battery. You could be lured into getting a bigger one, but I tell you that a mini rechargeable battery is fine for this project.
An acid or lead battery that is just 12 volt could handle this project. Look for the deep cell battery types and don't go for anything other than that, this is so because they are made for steady use, and they last long too.
You need to buy a battery box. It will serve as a protective cover for the battery. As you know before now that battery releases some drops of liquid; this is dangerous to living and non-living orgasms. The battery box will keep your kid or animals safe from the potential harm of battery.
Another stuff you need is a DC meter enough to suit the voltage of the battery and a DC input. It is responsible for transferring energy to the panel so it could be applied to various power sources in your house. In order to power AC gadgets in your home you require an inverter.
Here comes the coupling section of your solar panel parts together to get them to work. With the aid of a handheld driller, join the meter and DC input to the upper end of the battery container. After you might have done this, get some couple of insulated wires to link the meter to your battery.
Take caution to see that you use one wire after the other and link the initial wire to its negative input. Apply similar method to link the DC inlet and the solar panel to the battery itself.
After you are through with this, it is time to begin transforming the power of the sun to be used as a renewable energy. Seal the cover firmly using a cord and bring the whole product out to the sun. You can also fix it on top of your roof, if you wish. Relax for up to 9 hours and get set to enjoy the green energy you built.
This guide is for building a small solar system model. There are even more easy ways to build a 1000-watt solar panel to power the whole of your home. This way you won't have to even pay for power bills ever again and the good part is that you can also do it yourself. All you need is a video manual to guide you better. And the best part is that you won't be contributing to the pollution of our planet and help to lessen our dependency on foreign oil. I urge you to try this out for your home because it is the best way to save money electric bills.
Earth 4 Energy is a DIY Video manual which contains the easy to follow step-by-step guide you can apply to build your own Solar Panel Generator for under $250 in the comfort of your home. It shows you where to find cheap parts required for the solar generator and video guide to couple them together. If you want to live off the grid, now is your opportunity to build yours for less than the price of commercial made ones.
