How to build a portable solar panel from parts in your garage sound to good to be true? This article looks into some of the components that you may already own that would significatly lower your cost of building a portable solar power system.
How to build a Portable Solar Panel From Parts in your Garage is a new idea being explored these days. My research has shown that most of the components required for this project may already exist in your garage collecting dust. Here is a small list of parts that you need that just may be in your back yard tool shed or garage.
Bucket of Nuts, Bolts and Screws - Someone with OCD (Occupational Compulsive Disordered) might keep each one separate by size, type, length, and thickness. I just have this big gallon pail of them all together. If I need something, my pail usually has it!
Wire Nuts and Plugs - Done any home wiring lately? I have! Lumber stores usually make you buy more than you would ever need, right!
Wire - Any 14 gauge spare electrical house wiring littering your garage? Why not put into some good use!
12 Volt Batteries - Have you taken a battery out of a car and don't know what to do with it?
12 Volt socket - For your car enthusiast....Have you ever seen one of these sockets. Can we say a Cigarette lighter?
Old Cooler - Have an old cooler collecting dust and refuse to put in the trash? They make a great battery storage unit!
Power inverter - Have you ever used your computer or small house device in the car and plugged it into the cigarette lighter?
Power Drill - Yep! This is the handiest tool. I use it as a screwdriver, drill holes, grind, and sanding.
Wire Cutter - Don't have one? Scissors, utility knife and even a steak knife (Don't tell you significant other!).
This is approximately 90% of all the components you need to build a portable solar panel. Most of us garage bums already have these parts collecting dust and/or stumbling over them while finishing the 'honey do list'. All we need is a Guild, Book or Manual to explain how to put all these parts together.
