How to make a solar panel? Conserve energy
So many people want to make a solar panel. Here is a quick easy project to see how it all works.
The sun energy is undoubtedly efficient and convertible in various forms. Humanity has devised scientific ways to utilize that renewable nature’s gift to its benefit and it is termed as ‘solar energy’. When we convert the light from the sun, which is in the form of small particles called photons, into electricity, it forms solar panels. Energy so produced can be used in various electrical loads and devices used for home and industrial purposes. The solar panels are also called as photovoltaic.
In the wake of the depleting natural resources and the ozone layer simultaneously, we need to make our personal contributions towards saving the greenery of the earth. The photoelectric effect created from sun is an awakening invention that should be adopted by every household.
If you want to know how to make solar panel, it can be done by following a few easy steps:
*Take a clean copper flashing and cut it into a square or rectangle. Make sure that the cleanliness of the copper flashing and the size fits that of the electric burner.
*Now turn on the burner with placing the copper flashing over it. After half an hour’s heating up, you will notice a black layer of cupric oxide on the flashing.
This material should be allowed to cool down and the deposit to be chipped off the surface gradually.
*Any excess bits of the cupric oxide that is deposited over the surface should be completely rugged off under the cold water. But the red cuprous oxide should retain over the surface itself.
*Take one more same size copper flash sheet and attach both of them along side the walls of a glass jar using an alligator clip. The copper sheet should adjust with the curve of the jar’s wall but should not touch each other.
*Now make following connections: alligator clip to the positive terminal; cuprous oxide to the negative terminal.
*Take water as much that it covers the bottom side of the plates without touching the alligator clips. Before pouring in the water should be boiled and the salt be dissolved into it.
After performing all these steps, if you will place the solar panel under the sun, it will show you the results in the form of energy being generated. This is a simple procedure of creating a solar panel effect. You can simply make the solar panels for you own home to ensure the benefits.
The solar panel price is not that significant as much are the uses of this cost effective and energy effective tool. It doesn’t take many efforts to be aware that it’s the social responsibility of all of us to help the environment.. So one can easily learn that how to make solar panel at home and enjoy the real contribution for the betterment of generations to come!
