Green DIY Solar Panels – 5 Key Points About Building Your Own Solar Panels


Green DIY Solar Panels – 5 Key Points About Building Your Own Solar Panels

Green DIY solar panels can be built by anyone who enjoys do-it-yourself projects.  If you’re like most people, you would love to have solar panels that will significantly reduce your monthly energy bills, but do not want to spend a couple thousand to have a full system installed.  And you most likely are not an expert in solar panel construction… so what do you do?

Here are 5 key points that you should consider when thinking about building your own green DIY solar panels, from someone who has actually gone through the DIY solar panel process.

1.  It is really is possible!  Don’t simply write it off as too difficult, or not for you.  Thousands of people have built their own solar panels right in their backyards, and you can join them!

2.  There are green DIY guides and instruction manuals that will make the construction process much easier.  I definitely recommend purchasing a DIY solar panel guide that will tell you exactly what parts you need, where you can purchase them, and how to assemble and mount your solar panels.

3.  Use tutorial videos!  When you are looking for a construction guide, choose one that offers tutorial videos.  These are a must, because they serve as great visual examples that show you exactly what you should be doing throughout the entire solar panel construction process.  A good guide should come with at least 5-7 tutorial videos.  There are a lot of different steps in the construction process that tutorial videos cover well.

4.  Be realistic in your planning.  You have to have the panels in the sunlight at least 8 hours a day for them to be effective.  If you live in an apartment, or somewhere that doesn’t get a lot of sunlight, I would not recommend trying to use solar panels.  Perhaps go with a wind turbine instead, which is a nice alternative to solar energy. 

Also, don’t expect to eliminate your energy bill with your first solar panel kit; it’s going to be small, and cutting 5% – 10% off your energy bill is more realistic.

5.  Know how much you’re going to spend.  Building your own solar panels is much cheaper than having them installed professionally.  Most small solar energy systems can be built for $ 200 or less.  Also, if you purchase a solar panel guide, it will be showing you how to build a system for that price, so you know what to expect.

Most importantly, have fun and go for it!  You really can build your own solar panels.  You won’t regret it!

    Nice job Dan and Denise….you made a great video….overlook all of the no
    class comments…these fools are everywhere on YouTube !
    Good stuff Thanks !

    It is just as cheap or cheaper to buy them.

    Not certain about the points made but ,if anyone else needs to find out
    about how to build solar panels try “Samtawkes DIY Solar Panels” ( search
    on google ) ? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my brother in law
    got excellent results with it.

    Nice boobs Denise

    100 quadrillion Btu = US annual energy consumption
    3412 BTUs = 1 kWh
    100 quadrillion Btu = about 30 trillion KWh

    US annual energy consumption = about 30 trillion KWh

    5 kWh array = 25 solar panels
    30 trillion KWh = 150 trillion solar panels

    US annual energy consumption = 150 trillion solar panels

    size of a typical solar panel = 18 sq. ft.
    150 trillion solar panels * 18 sq. feet = 2.7 quadrillion sq. feet
    surface of earth = about 197 million sq. miles
    197 million sq. miles = 1.04 billion sq. feet
    2.7 quadrillion sq. feet/1.04 billion sq. feet = 2.6 million earths

    For the US annual energy consumption to be covered by solar panel power
    energy output,

    you guys are awesome. thank you so much for showing me how to do this I was
    just about to drop 3000 on a kit, but I can totally make this and the
    casing. Again thank you!

  7. Carl Nel says:

    This has absolutely buggerall to do with making your own PV solar cells.
    These sods (pun intended) are just SODDERING, soldering (note the LD after
    O instead of DD) in the English language, PV cells to form a larger panel.

  8. Jorge Cordeiro says:

    Fique na mesma

  9. Shayde Mohr says:

    You should rename your video. You are not making solar cells, you are
    purchasing solar cells to attach them in series, and create a solar panel.
    I was mislead by your video title, thinking it had information on how to
    create solar photovoltaic cells at home.

    Great Video 

  11. Jaime Sanchez says:

    I like how Denise put her boobs away after the intro. lol they were a bit
    of a distraction.

  12. Namaegaaru says:

    You are in your rights to disable the comments. I am far more interested in
    what you two have to teach versus many comments I find offensive and
    contentedly ignorant. Thank you very much for this video.

  13. aptfabrications says:

    Why not build a jig for soldering that prevents breaking by supporting the
    tabbed section.

    First of all Denise has a really nice rack on her.. Second of all, I am
    sure you and all your friends are on the liberal bandwagon and have bought
    into the global warming hoax, hook,line and sinker.. The earth has been
    going through a cooling cycle over the past 30 years and has spiked over
    the last 8-10 years as we are past due for another ice age..Record cold has
    been the norm over the past 8-10 winters.. The Democrats have been pushing
    this global warming hoax in order to push this carbon tax.. All there hard
    work to convince as many suckers to believe this nonsence and paying off
    scientist to “see things their way” have finally payed off.. obama is now
    spearheading this rediculous carbon tax.. This is nothing more than a
    massive transfer of wealth.. Take from the rich and give it to those who
    choose not to work but leach off the government instead.. Nevermind the
    FACT that the TOP 1% pay 40% of all TAXES PAYED.. The top 10% EARNERS PAY
    liberal media and the democrats have told so many lies for so long its
    sick.. They are COMMUNIST backed by the uber rich like George Soros (a
    bigtime COMMUNIST). They now include APPLE, MICROSOFT, GOOGLE and many
    others that are members of the NEW WORLD ORDER CROWD.. WAKE UP PEOPLE !!!
    DEMORATS are taking away this country and replacing it with an elitist
    COMMUNIST government where a few hundred thousand rich people live like
    kings while enslaving the entire population.. Them going after our guns is
    just the tip of the iceburg.. If you care about your personal freedom then
    you better wise up to the lies and intimidation of the left.. Fox news is
    the only somewhat “REAL NEWS” not filled with leftist propeganda.. Even Fox
    cannot tell the whole truth.. If they did, obama would take them off the
    air immediatly.. Our economy is shrinking by 3% a year under the muslim
    jihadist, communist, hater of America,traitor, obama.
