Solar Panels Work

Solar panels operate by producing electricity using certain wavelengths of light. To work optimally, all these panels need is direct sunlight and low temperature.

Today it iseasier than ever to build your own solar panel, with all the kits and methods available. Your own homemade solar panel can be an effective way to produce your own power and save on future power bills– for your recreational vehicle or for your house. |
Building Your Own Solar Panel
All the components required for creating your own solar panel are made available in most kits. These componentstypically include: solar cells, a soldering iron, solder, flux, and tabbing. Kits typically include detailed instructions on how to make a solar panel. Constructing a solar panel at home does notrequire professional expertise. You can simply follow the step-by-step instructions available with the kit. You can also look up web forums and ask questions of others who have built these before. Ahomemade solar panel can be a big money saver and have you on your way to having your own residential solar power system.
Another advantage of building and installing a solar panel is that they areeco-friendly, or, produce "green energy" to use the latest terminology. Other forms of electricity emit certain harmful elements that contribute to smog, and other pollution, while solar power is free fromsuch hazardous emissions.
If you find you require more energy output, you may add more solar panels to generate more power.

An energy law passed by the U.S. government in August of 2005 allows atax credit of 30% of the solar panel system’s cost with a maximum of $2,000. (Consult your tax professional for details).
