where can i get a multi crystalling cell
2011, factory panels are for the most part. the way to go. Cells are
cheaper now so as the price drops for completed panels, so does the DIY
method. If you have the extra time or need custom panels, DIY is the way to
go. If not, buy a whole panel. This just shows easy ways of doing it. If
you try to make a panel from new materials, aluminum frame, non-reflective
glass etc. makes no sense. If you have glass and can customize to the size
then it is still a valid choice. TIME is the main factor
if the wood warps why not make something like a slide or somethign that
resembels train tracks?
train tracks warp all the time.
Whats wrong with coal fired steam power man?
Think of that steam whistle blowing off at five am letting everyone know
that Tom has invested in tried and true systems that have worked for over a
century. Shoveling coal keeps you in shape. Smoke from your chimney will
choke out the birds and bugs that endanger your veggies. Man I really love
my veggies and I could talk about my bokchoi for hrs.
+armynet191 Glad you like the satirical wit.
So come on !!
+Josef Venport you sir…. made my day. hahahaha
i am for steam Machines but powered wit sunlight.
I am all for Mrs Rohas!!!
Dan, Dan, Dan,,,, I would have NEVER admitted tabbing the cells to
themselves !!! LOL
Honesty is a good thing,,,, embarrassment is not,, it wouldn’t be as bad if
you had just done ONE, but when you tab a string together and go to pick it
up,,, and only 1 of them lifts up,,, I personally would have not only not
Posted it,,, but I would have Destroyed it, so No One could EVER have seen
it !! Just the difference between You and Me,,, No hard feelings but I got
embarrassed a LOT as a kid , and can not take it any more !!!
honest dude, right?!? also though, a hella honest mistake that I was
thinking I would have done, so I respect his selflessness even more,
considering that probably will save me a bit of time
Honesty Wins,,, but I KNOW that I would have been to embarrassed to admit
it myself !!!
Lol ya he could’ve just fibbed and said, ‘see how easy that ways guys?’ and
went on with the show. But I give him credit for his honesty. To be frank I
actually thought he might’ve done that but thought he knew better. Silly
error, we all make dumb mistakes once in a while.
I enjoyed this, thank you!
You can buy new units for less than $1 a watt now.
+GREENPOWERSCIENCE It’s amazing how cheap they’ve gotten. I just paid 25¢
per watt for complete panels (50 of them). Exciting! Now if I could just
store the energy so cheaply.
+alan headrick The cells are now less than 60¢ a watt now too. This video
was from a few years ago when prices for completed panels and solar cells
were higher. Everything is really inexpensive now.
+Peter Lawton where did you buy your panels?
I signed up for email from sunelec.com and waited. The best deals are
offered via email, not the web site.
Awesome, You are worth trillion quadruple times infinity dollars bro!
nice twist at the end hahaha
How do you make the kind of cell on 1:30-1:55? I am talking about the panel
made solely from resin. No frame or glass.
Looks like too much work just to save a few bucks.
How about showing us how to make a cost effective high capacity 2,000 Ah
12v or 24v battery? I can’t find any YouTube videos on this. You could be
The battery could be lead-acid or nickle-iron. I prefer nickle-iron. They
last 10 times longer.
Where do you buy the panels from? I looked online and there are too many
places to choose from.
hahaha good video. The important part is don’t make the same mistake!!!
Thank you for videos, very educational. Now do you think you can how a to
use solar on ac the cheaper way?
air conditioning. . Thank you.
+MARGARET PAUL A/C air conditioning or alternating current?
Thanks man! I liked your non-ego explanation, especially the end where you
mentioned tabbing some cells to themselves. Very few people can acclaim
themselves as professionals at this, so thanks again!
where did u get your resin
What I love about this video is that the studio work looks straight out of
1978 but it’s talking about modern (futuristic!) tech. :P
so how do i make my own solar panels? what you show is shop bought solar
panels! you are just a liar!
i have a mother, she is dead. you claim i do not have a mother, you need to
learn the basics of biology, or are you like 90% of other american and
believe in god?
+BΛM ΛRT LΛB awww look another child who knows nothing. it is so cute how
these young children think they know everything. now go back to your
fingerpainting like a good little girl 🙂
