  13. 13. Cut your plywood to the correct size so that your solar cells cover all the plywood. The number of solar cells to use varies depending on how big of solar panel you want. Typically 80 solar cells will produce about 100 W of power.<br />Step – 1Cut the plywood<br />
  14. 14. Apply a few coats of UV protector to the plywood. <br />Step – 2uv protector<br />
  15. 15. Trace the flux pen across the solder points on the solar cells to help keep the wiring down. <br />Step – 3flux pen<br />
  16. 16. Solder together all of the solar cells and the wiring to connect the cells.Once you have soldered all the rows, you need to connect the rows together, also using tin wire. <br />Step – 4solder the solar cells<br />
  17. 17. Use the silicon to bind the solar cells to the plywood. Do not use too much silicon. <br />Step – 5connect solar cells to plywood<br />
  18. 18. Drill a couple holes in the plywood where the wires can go through to the back of the plywood. <br />Step – 6connect wires through plywood<br />
  19. 19. Create border around the plywood that encompasses your solar cells. Use silicon as your adhesive for the border so there will not be any water leaks onto the solar cells. <br />Step – 7attach border to edge of plywood<br />
  20. 20. Attach the plexiglass to the border to cover your solar cells. Use silicon again. As with the previous step, you're going to want to screw this part down for added support. Drill holes in the plexiglass first slightly smaller than the size of the screws you are using.<br />Step – 8attach the plexiglass to the border<br /><br />
  21. 21. You’ll need to seal those holes around the wires with silicon as well as any other holes or gaps on your solar panel.<br />Step – 9seal plywood holes around wires<br />
  22. 22. Despite your solar cells being completely sealed by the plexiglass and silicon epoxy, moisture can still build up inside the solar panel. To prevent this, simply drill hole near the bottom of the solar panel, away from the wiring. <br />Step – 10moisture prevention<br />
  23. 23. This information provides you an idea of what is involved with building a home solar panel. You only need a handful of parts, most of which are available at any hardware store and the others can be found cheaply or even free if you know where to look. <br />
