This article will explore what does it actually take to build your own solar panel at home. So what does it take to build your own solar panel? You will need the parts, the drive to build your own solar panel and finally the schematics or plans that tell you exactly where to connect the parts.

The Parts

I would hate to disappoint you but unless you are living in some sort of factory, you cannot get the parts for free. Sure you might be able to salvage some or most of them from unused appliances or other things, but you will still have to shell out the money for the things you will not be able to find around you.

The Drive

Do you want to stay off the grid? Do you want to not pay another penny for your electricity? Then it is time to stick by those words, you will get nowhere if you *give up*. It is not hard to build your own solar panel for your home. But it gets hard once you question your ability to reach your goal, so never ever say you cannot do it, you can!

The Schematics or the plans

The plans is the core part of your journey, you just cannot do anything without them. But the good thing is that they come cheap unlike the parts, those may cost you upwards of three hundred dollars. You can find the plans on the internet for around fifty dollars if you look well enough, and that is a bargain.

In the end Building your own homemade solar panel is really way easier than it looks or sounds and is at least 10 times cheaper than buying a prebuilt solar panel system.
