If utility companies are taking too much of your income to supply electricity to your house and you want to save this money then use your free time to make something that could save your money. What it could be that will save your money? It could be a homemade solar panel. Solar panels can be bought from market also but those brand new solar panels will be too expensive as compared to homemade solar panels.
How to start if you are an electrical engineer and have the technical knowledge?
If you are an electrical engineer then the job is much easier for you because you can easily understand and manage the technical requirements of the system. You can refer to any information site that will tell you the required components of a solar panel. After knowing the required components, you can go to market to buy or manage the components required. You are an electrical engineer so you have the technical ability to construct the system.
What to do if you do not know the process of making a solar panel in home without the assistance of any technical guy?
Is it possible to reach a destination if you do not know the exact path? Yes, it is possible by asking the exact path from others. The same thing applies in making a solar panel also. If you do not know the process of making the solar panels in home then you can ask your friends or relatives or you can also refer to a DIY guide. DIY guides are home solar panel kits which come with the complete manual explaining the process of making a solar panel in home. Some kits may also come with the materials required in the process of making a solar panel. So first buy a most suitable and useful kit and then start the construction of your DIY solar panel.
If you are not careful enough in making a solar panel then it may result in fire so be careful in making these systems. You will not get any advantage of the tax credits or rebates if you are making a solar panel system in your home because homemade solar panels do not qualify for any rebate offered by the government. Finally, if you are buying a new solar panel from market then the seller will offer guarantee on their product but if you are using your own knowledge to make your solar panel then you will not get any guarantee. So beware of the disadvantages of the homemade solar panels and then decide whether these systems can benefit you or not.
