Did you ever wonder how a solar panel is made? It’s actually easier than you think to build one at home – though you do need the individual cells! This instructional video will guide you through the process of connecting polycrystalline solar cells together, the first step in constructing your very own panel. The beauty of this system is that you can make any size you want and if you love DIY and have some spare time, you can save on the cost of buying a ready made panel.



If you live in a remote place or you simply want to reduce your environmental footprint or utility bills, a small solar generator can provide enough power for basic lighting and small appliances. Once it’s up and running, the maintenance required is minimal and the electricity is free! A larger system can be connected to the grid and could be earning you money every day!

Small solar panels are ideal for charging low voltage batteries (between 12 and 24 volts). Car batteries can store a good amount of electricity but often suffer damage when drained even for a short length of time. It’s better to use leisure batteries – these are designed for use in caravans and motor homes – they have a much longer life on a cycle of slow repeated charging and discharging. Deep cycle (or “solar”) batteries are the best, although more expensive, and are now more commonly available.



Positioning your solar panel is crucial! – the output is greatly reduced when the panel is not facing directly towards the sun. We found a great design to build your own tracking device that moves the panel to keep it constantly at the right angle for maximum power.

The solar cells used in this video tutorial have to be soldered – as you will see, this is quite a labour intensive process! “Tabbed” cells cost a bit more but will save you half of the work with the soldering iron.

To put a complete solar electricity generation system in place takes a bit more knowledge – fortunately there is a wealth of information on the internet from people who have the experience! Please be sure to do your research and find out all you need to know before you start so you buy the correct materials and learn how to work safely.
