DIY Solar Power System Components

Are you thinking of installing solar panels at your house, but you think it might be costly? Then you have to change your notion about it because nowadays due to the high cost of power solar energy, solar power systems are gaining popularity. While some companies offer to install a solar power system for tens of thousands of dollars in order to fully provide your home with solar electricity, you can save a lot of money starting with small things and installing solar power system independently. One of the advantages of using it is that there is no need to buy batteries on regular basis in comparison to purchasing them regularly for an inventor (equipment used for electricity). At the time smaller Solar Power system can also be installed which is less expensive and generates electricity. Even a small amount of solar panels on the roof of your house will lead to smaller payments for electricity. Solar power systems come in 2 types: on grid and off grid. Grid tie solar systems produce energy only during the sunlight. Off grid solar systems includes a battery that stores energy, i.e. your house will be provided with electricity even when the sun does not shine. There are also hybrid systems that are a combination of these 2 systems.
Let’s have a look at the main components of a home solar power system.

PV Solar Panels

The main component of DIY solar power system is the solar panel. The PV Solar panel electricity systems are also called as solar photovoltaic (PV) which captures the sun’s energy using the photovoltaic cells. This energy is the prime source for the device. The best part of this type of solar cells does not require direct sunlight for working rather these cells can also generate a great amount of electricity on a particular cloudy day. These cells can easily make electricity by converting the sunlight and it can be used for lighting and running the household appliances.

Before Starting a DIY Solar Power Project

Posted on : Tuesday | By : Max | In : DIY Solar


3 questions you should ask yourself before starting a DIY solar power project:

1. Are you sure you want to do it?
I know some people who have purchased the necessary materials, thoroughly prepared, but then they suddenly lost all desire to do it, they got tired. Are you a hundred per cent sure that you’ll finish the project and won’t stop halfway.

2. Are you willing to spend considerable time on the project?
It can takes you about 2 days to build only one panel. You should be aware that the project will take you a lot of time, because you’ll need to study in details the step by step manual. After making the 1st panel it will be much easier to make the others, and you will assemble them much faster. The most difficult part is the beginning.

3. Will you create a panel studying only textual material or with the video?
If my father didn’t have a quality instruction with the video detailing the installation steps, I think he would have failed, because my father is not an electrician and has never created anything like this. If you have only texts, some parts of the installation process can be confusing. You definitely need to have a step by step video description of the process.

That’s it. Ask yourself these questions before you start your DIY solar power project. Again, I repeat, never give up. Be extremely focused, believe that everything will be OK, and the success of the work will be provided.

How to Make Home Solar Power System – My Story

Hey Max here,

If you want to build home solar power system and forget about the electric bills, I strongly suggest you keep reading…

Because I’ll tell you the story of how my parents have already been living for six months without paying a penny for electricity.

My mom and dad live in a separate house and earn quite a bit of money. My dad used to always complain about an energy company that sent him too big electric bills, and wanted somehow reduce these costs. Installation of energy-saving light bulbs did not solve their problems.

Then dad found out that one businessman in his street installed solar panels on the roof of his house and reduced his energy costs quite considerably. We decided to find out how much the installation on the roof of our house will cost. We applied to the local company and were struck by the reply. The company offered us to install solar panels for over $20,000! This price was too high for us. Even if we were able to pay so much money for the installation, we would have to wait years before these panels were paid off. This was not an option.

But, despite all this, the idea of installing solar panels was good. I decided to search the internet, if there were some sites where the installation of solar panels by hand would described, since solar cells are cheap. I studied dozens of free sites, watched dozens of videos on Youtube, but didn’t find any qualitative step-by-step installation guide describing all the necessary materials. I was disappointed.

But then I suddenly came across a site that offered a paid guide to installing solar power system. At first I was very skeptical of the proposal, as it was an advertising website. Then, after reading testimonials of the product, I decided to buy it, especially since it was offered for a discounted price. The package consisted of 7 eBooks and 8 video files with a step-by-step description of the installation of solar panels and wind turbines, and a bonus guide to creating your own bio diesel.

I told my father about the product and he decided to try to install by himself. As it turned out, he could buy all the materials required for the installation at any hardware store and on eBay for a little over $200. My dad took up the installation, and the first homemade solar panel was ready in 1 day (you can see my dad installing his first solar panel on the photo). And this despite the fact that my dad was not an electrician and wasn’t very good at electronics. He said that all the installation steps were well illustrated in the videos that helped him assemble the panel alone so quickly.

During the first month my dad made five panels and started waiting for the result. A month later, he received the electric bill by 40% less than usual! “Wow, this really works!”, I thought then.

It’s been six months and now my parents don’t pay for electricity at all, because they produce energy themselves. My dad has already set 15 panels, and thanks me for this tutorial, and I’m glad I helped him.

Ultimately it’s up to you to decide either to use this DIY solar panels manual or not. The only drawback is that you need to understand the installation process, and the assembly of one panel takes more than one day if you are not a professional. I hope my story will help you to build your own home solar power system.

Thank you for your attention.
Sincerely, Max.

Solar Power Is Our Future Source Of Electricity

Posted on : Monday | By : Max | In : Solar Power


Solar energy in our time

Currently, solar power is mainly generated by means of solar panel systems. Solar power panels convert sunlight into electricity. Until now their main drawback was the lack of energy at night. However, recent developments and the improved performance of the panels made the production of energy possible even at night.

Solar energy is the future

Now solar panels are widely used for the production of energy for homes. One of the factors of the growth in the use of solar panels is their durability. Manufacturers guarantee efficient work of panels for 25 years from the date of installation. Another factor is government programs that provide benefits for their installation.

It may take a long time before we fully move to home solar power to meet our needs for electricity. However, the current rate of fossil fuel consumption is very high and more and more people are thinking about switching to residential solar energy.

Solar Panels Advantages

There are many advantages of solar energy for home, but I’ll show you 4 most important ones:

1) It makes you money.
After a few months of using solar panels you won’t pay for electricity. Also if you can produce a lot of energy, the power company will pay you!

2) It saves the environment.
Producing solar energy, you don’t pollute the environment. So if you are concerned about the protection of nature, this clean and renewable form of energy is for you.

3) It’s a good investment.
Companies offer to install solar power panels on the higher rate. But if you install them with your hands, it will be a very profitable investment, and your house will be self-sustaining far into the future.

4) It’s a stable technology.
No one wants to invest in technology that will become obsolete in a few years. You can be sure that the technology of production of solar power will only grow and improve with each passing year.
