There are two obvious attractions to being able to make your own power with solar panels. You can save money on utility bills and you can put less pressure on the environment by using environmentally friendly and renewable energy. DIY Solar power kits offer the average person the chance to use solar power in their home. This article will expand on what a DIY solar panel kit is.
A DIY solar panel kit is more specifically a manual that shows you how to put a system together. Most kits on the market don’t come with parts already supplied. They are not a kit in the manner of a model airplane kits that has a series of parts and instructions to follow to fit them together. Rather it is a manual that shows you how to source the parts needed and then put them together.
An important part of any manual should be how you make a solar panel. Solar cells that make up a panel generally come ready made and can be sourced quite cheaply. But putting them together so that you produce a sufficient amount of current needs to be explained.
After that, a good explanation of the complete system and how it fits together is needed. In reality the component parts of the system are few in number. Most have to be bought and this can vary in price depending on where you source them.
The sum total cost of parts for DIY solar panel kits can be under $200. This may make you keen to make one yourself but the capacity of such panels will not be comparable to a professional system. With this said, there is no reason why you can’t make more DIY solar panels to increase the overall wattage. This is only limited to the amount of space you have to locate them and your own personal interest and time in undertaking a solar power project.
