Solar Energy Panels : How To Build Up Your Own Home Solar Electricity

You could already be aware of solar energy panels as a wonderful way for you to preserve the environment and save a bit of money. But are you aware you can build up your very own solar energy panels? It's true!

San Jose, CA (I-Newswire) April 7, 2013 - Many people could already be aware of solar energy panels as a wonderful way to preserve the environment and save a bit of money. But most people are not aware that solar energy panels can be built with a few simple instructions. It's true! With just a little time and some materials from your local home goods store, people can make some. This article shows the best way to make a photovoltaic cell so that others can understand the principle of how these panels work. This is an excellent means of showing youngsters how these things work. Continue reading to find out.

First, assemble the materials you want. Here are some of the materials needed to start with: sheet metal, copper sheeting, alligator clips, a hot plate and a clear bottle made from plastic. Salt and water is also needed, as well as a micro-ammeter that may read less than fifty amperes. Naturally, be sure to have the acceptable safety kit, including gloves, spectacles and tongs. Have a first aid kid close by, as well as a tub of water or fire extinguisher.

Next, check that the copper is not corroded and sandpaper them to be certain. Then, cut 2 pieces of copper that are roughly the scale of the hot plate. Put one of the pieces on top of the hot plate and turn it up to the maximum. As the copper heats, it is going to oxidize and ultimately turn black. That should take in the region of 30 to forty minutes. Monitor the copper in this time to avoid an accident. Then allow the copper to cool down for about a half hour. Finally, wash the cooled copper off in cool water, wiping off the uppermost layer of the oxidized coating. Use hands for this step, since the only thing needed to address the top layer of oxidation that comes off simply, not all the way through. Be gentle as when doing this.

Make a narrow bucket by cutting the top of the plastic bottle. Now, take the unheated copper piece and insert it into the bottle. Then put the oxidized copper on the other side. Make sure they don't touch. Attach an alligator clip to each piece. Clamp the alligator clip from the unheated copper and attach it to the micro-ammeter's positive terminal. Attach the other piece of copper in a similar way to the negative terminal.

Use two large spoons of salt and mix it with a cup or 2 of water. Then tip the blend into the bottom of the plastic bottle, but do not wet the alligator clips. In fact , ensure there are one or two inches of copper at the top that stays dry. Check the micro-ammeter needle for movement. When putting this solar cell outside, the needle will rise as the panel soaks up the sun.

Now, the photovoltaic cell in this article will work as well as the solar energy panels that were bought. However , now people can more clearly know how this technology works and they can attempt to build their own solar panels and install them.
