drawing (electrical symbols) in excel

I am currently drawing something similar as the jpg below in excel, because lack of other software on my desktop computer.

I have already partially drawn this, similar as when creating a flowchart diagram, however I don't know how to input the electrical symbols.
Does anybody knows how I should be doing this?

Please do not advise software (like VISIO), as my boss doesn't want to buy extra software, however I'm doing this to clarify my hand-drawn diagrams for future technicians that will work on the site, and to have a digital back-up of the diagrams.

There might be a library somewhere on the internet that has those symbols? or another way perhaps to import these symbols into excel? Or maybe they are already in excel, but I can't find 'em?

All help much appreciated.
