Do you want to save money by reducing your electricity bill? Homemade solar panels could help you do just that. I'll thought it would be great to write this article so everyone gets an overview of what you'll need to build a solar power system at home and how it functions. There are two ways of installing photovoltaic solar panels, 'photovoltaic' means they will generate electricity this is very important as opposed to regular ones that can only heat water. In fact there are two options: semi-DIY or full-DIY. The latter requires more skill, patience and ambition on your side.
The hardest part is building your cells. (But they can easily be purchased online at the lowest cost. They're usually around one dollar for a normal size solar cell. Heat copper sheeting for 30 minutes to create copper oxide on the surface. Cool it, place it next to the non-oxidized copper then adding a salt-water solution onto its surface submerge in a break-proof glass panel. The next step is some wiring, mounting the jacks and you're almost done. You need to repeat the process several times to create a full panel to power your house.
Buy the solar panels locally or online. All the kits are different but you should receive; photovoltaic cells, wiring kit and installing hardware/mounting devices. Most kits come with instructions which should be simple and precise, although there are guides and online articles which go much more in depth.
The full-DIY is more cost-effective and enjoyable at the same time. The semi-DIY requires less work however a commercial solar panel is normally sold for at least two thousand dollars, which isn't at everyone's hand.
