Want to Build Your Own Inexpensive Do it yourself home Solar Panels?

May 21st, 2010

Did the idea of building your own solar panels ever for your home ever come to mind?

If you thought that the idea of doing it yourself would be difficult or too expensive,

you may be seriously mistaken! If the area you live in receives a fair amount of sunlight,

example Florida or even California, you have the possibility of saving thousands on your

next electrical bill. See, solar power technology is in incredible vehicle to achieving limitless energy and provides you with that possibility of generating enough energy to power your entire house for free!

Solar panels can generate approximately 15 watts to many hundred watts, varying on the number of solar panels utilized. When several solar panels are attached together, you can begin generating the amount of electrical energy needed to power your entire household for absolutely free.

Now the question you may be asking yourself is if you receive enough sunlight during the day to make this thing work? And the answer to that question is very simple if you think you receive more than 6 hours of direct sunlight every single day than this will be a very powerful energy alternative for you. Another thing to think about is to see if your roof is positioned in the right way to see if the panels lay for full potential. If the roof is not in the correct place, you don’t have to be afraid. There is always the alternative of building a support on the ground to fix the location in the appropriate place so you can make this work.

One of the last major questions you need to ask yourself is, “Should you hire a professional or should you build your own solar panels system and do it yourself?” The first choice you may or may not be leaning towards is going to cost you a significant amount of money only to install. Professionals in the field charge an arm and a leg and were not even talking about buying the solar panel itself (normally over $50,000).

The secondary option is a fairly new, the do it yourself option, it is an alternative that many people are jumping on board. Now, the first thing I recommend you do is to start doing some research at your local retailers on deals for solar cells and some other casting materials that you will need for the solar panel build. A good place to look is in your local hardware store or in the phone book or even the internet.

On a closing note, I highly recommend with the solar DIY option as opposed to the professional installation. The main reason is because you can easily build yourself a solar panel for less than $200 but with professional installation you will be paying $50k only for the installation aspect of the project! Regardless of what you decide to do, having your own solar panels generating the energy will save you multiple thousands in the future and you will feel much better knowing that you are doing something great for the environment!
