Building your own solar power system has never been easier with the use of solar off grid kits. There is a huge saving in money that you will save when you have solar off grid kits to help you build your own solar energy system. When you add solar cells to your solar off grid kit, you are reducing your electric bill by producing your own electricity from renewable resources like the sun. It is possible to have your own solar off grid kit built for less than one hundred dollars with parts and materials you can buy at a local hardware store. In this article I will go over how to make solar cells and how to install them onto your own solar off grid kit.
Off Grid Guide – What is a Solar Off Grid Kit?
Making solar cells can be a challenge but there are many online videos and books that can show you step by step how to make solar cells for your solar off grid kit. If you have some basic carpentry skills and a saw, you can make solar cells using a frame and solar cells that are pre made. If you have some mechanical skills but not much woodworking skills, you can still build your own solar cells that will work just as well as if you had bought a commercially produced solar cell off the shelf.
Once you build your own solar off grid kit, you will need to connect your solar cells together to get maximum output from each one. If you are using commercially produced solar cells for your off the grid solar system then they should be able to give you an idea of how many cells you will need to purchase or rent. Then you will need to purchase a photovoltaic panel (PV) and connect it to your PV. Last, but not least you will need to wire your solar cells together so that the whole solar off grid system works together properly. To do this you will need some type of connection wiring and an electrician.
