Solar panels are a very economical way to harness the sun's power into energy for our every day use. There are plenty of instructions that you can find online or purchase DIY guides that will assist you every step of the way. (see resources provided below)

Let's face it. Energy independence is a hot topic these days. With global warming and talk of other global environmental issues, harnessing the sun to provide energy is not only wise, but necessary. Energy costs continually increase and many people are already struggling enough in this recession, so to be able to save money using home made solar panels makes good sense. Don't worry about being called a "tree hugger" if you go solar. In fact, most people will commend you for stepping out of your comfort zone and doing something productive.

Solar energy in and of itself is an amazing resource. We're talking FREE energy. Who doesn't like free? Retail solar panels are still relatively pricey, so home made solar panels are the way to go. All you need to do is read up on how to make them, gather all the necessary components, and get started. It should only take you 2-3 days to get your solar panels up and running. (see resources provided below)

If you do not understand solar energy, quite simply it is using the sun's energy to act as electricity instead of power grids. The reason you need solar, or photovoltaic panels is because these convert the sun's energy that hits them into usable electricity for our homes. Solar panels are made up of solar cells and these cells create volts of electricity to power up our appliances. You don't have to understand the whole process to be able to utilize the wonderful, energy efficient concepts.

If you think that you cannot make your own home made solar panels, I'm sure that you know someone who is handy that would be willing to do this project for you for a very reasonable price. Either way, you will be saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars throughout the years as you allow the sun's energy to power up your home.

The average cost of setting up your home made solar panels may still be considered too high for some families, but you have options. For instance, once you find out what components you will need to construct the panels, check around for used components for a better price. You could cut your costs in half this way and still have a quality system for your home.

As far as the materials that you will need to make your home made solar panels are concerned, you should be able to find everything right at your local hardware store for reasonable prices. The key is to find simple and quality instructions for the project. Many people have opted to make their own homemade solar panels and are quite happy with their reduced energy bills and their efforts at helping the environment.
