Certain resources today are becoming scarce. With the rising costs of fuel among other things, energy could soon become another resource that we might be sucking up too much of. With that said, why not harness the power of mother nature and build a solar panel that uses the power of the sun to transfer that power to your home?

Building a solar panel has never been easier. With the cost of supplies only ranging from $100-$200 at the most, the easy access to the supplies and the simplicity of building a solar panel, you can really save some money on your power bill each and every month (and contribute to conserving energy too)!

So, how can you build your own solar panel? First, you need some basic supplies, such as:

- A 24 to 48 volt battery (a car battery usually works best)
- Copper sheets
- Steel tubing and scrap metal (used to make the base of the solar panel)
- Electrical wiring
- And most importantly, a great set of instructions to follow

Those are just a few of the things needed to build a solar panel, but most importantly, why do you need a great set of instructions? Well, if you have no experience building a solar panel, you obviously need something to show you how to do it, right? But really, you need an excellent blueprint to follow, so you know that you're building your solar panel correctly. That way, if anything should go wrong, you'll know exactly how to fix it!

With that said, if you in search for instructions on how to build your own solar panel, check out Earth4Energy It is a complete guide that provides full, detailed instructions on how to build your own solar panel!
