For years, I wanted to use solar power to cut our electric bills. We live in a rural area, and we have lots of room to install solar panels and equipment. The problem has always been cost. Lately I’ve spent a lot of time researching solar panels, and it occurred to me that I could probably assemble solar cells myself to have the solar panels at a fraction of the cost .
With a few quick searches on eBay, it was easy to see that I could indeed get the rawmaterials for my do it yourself solar panels. In fact, several of the sellers seemed to be giving away instructions for putting them together.
Right now I’m waiting for my first 36 solar cells to arrive. I have solar cell plansrot put them together, and I’ll make sure I let you know how it turns out!
