How to make a Solar Panel – Wiring, Soldering, and Cell Layout – Explained Simply!

This “how to make a solar panel” video shows how to connect everything together including all wiring, soldering and cell layout (using tabbed solar cells). Full easy instructions. if you are using “untabbed” solar cells watch my video on “Solar Cell Tabbing”. (tabbing is very easy to do). items can be bought as a kit on ebay. for about $48.00 you can get 40 solar cells, tabbing wire, bus wire, flux pen and even blocking diode. i used lead free rosin core solder from harbor freight. cost about $2.50. soldering iron is just a basic 30 watter. the third (and final) video will show how to encase/enclose the panels in either a plywood box or metal framed case. UPDATE: (11/10/2016) i just got the third and final video posted showing how to make the enclosure (or case) for the solar panel. here’s the link https://youtu.be/B1rtLwVe2m8

  8. Kobu Joseph on May 5, 2021 at 12:56 am

    very interesting, how do we get this materials locally, take for example i leave in cameroon. and for me to make my own solar panel for home used.

    how many watts does it produce? will try to do the same solar panel diy

  14. David Pumpkini on May 5, 2021 at 1:04 am

    Quick question, why do you need 18V panel arrangement to charge 12V battery? I was thinking of 12V arrangement. 
    Actually my plan was to use 72 panels (24 series panels connected in 3 parallel arrangement). So total output will be 12V and not sure about current, i think 15A total? 180W.

    Thank you for posting this it has helped me immensley. Smaller panels are a really great idea. I am not a pro solderer so that way if I need to fix one the others can still work.

    Hi, thanks for the good video. I will try to give something similar to my senior design project students. But I have a question, are you connecting your two sets of panels in parallel or in series? I understand stand that the individual cells are connected in series, though. Thanks!

    Nice

  38. Kelly Carver on May 5, 2021 at 1:37 am

    I just received a bunch of solar cells I ordered and the front of them looks fine, with complete lines across the whole surface, but the backs of these have only lines across HALF the cell or even less! They don’t have three spots like yours. I saw a couple in this stack that only had an eight inch contact on the back side! So what do I attach the back wires to if there’s no line there? Are these defective and can I use them?

  39. unitcount503 on May 5, 2021 at 1:37 am

    im new at this how do you get the 12 volts i got my solatr cells say 0.5 Vmax

  40. Dispatcher on May 5, 2021 at 1:37 am

  45. Abhimanyu Naikare on May 5, 2021 at 1:43 am

    Can you please suggest any good durable material for encapsulating it into a case instead of glass. I am hopping for a durable material and which will generate the same electricity. Thanks

  46. i love you on May 5, 2021 at 1:44 am

    wow
