DIY Solar Panels Kits
DIY solar panel kits are specifically designed for home do-it-yourselfers, experimenters, students and anyone interested in learning about solar power from the ground up. If you’re one of those people who learns best by doing…or just love tinkering around with things and putting them together, the a DIY solar panel kit is probably the best, most exciting and most fulfilling way to learn about solar energy.
A typical DIY solar panel kit will often include most (or all) of the following:
- Commercial quality solar cells
- Solar cell interconnection material
- Soldering iron (and perhaps other tools that may be needed)
- Flux (for soldering)
What's needed to get started with DIY
- Solar cells
- Junction box
- Solar cell tabbing material
- Encapsulation material
- Blocking diodes
- MC4 or other connector for power output
In fact, that list covers everything you actually need to make a fully functional solar panel using DIY solar panel kits. However, if you want your DIY solar panel to look like a real solar panel…the kind you’ll see from a professional installer, then you will need some additional materials, and some additional time and work constructing your solar panel.
The most notable optional components are a frame of some sort (usually aluminum) as well as some sort of cover (often tempered glass, acryllic, etc).
And, if you need help actually building your DIY solar panel kits, you can check out the great three video series below…it shows the complete construction of a solar panel…from beginning to end.
