I'm the kind of guy who loves to seek revolutionary things. Right now I am constructing my private pv panels. I am doing it all by myself without the help of my men. I'm using the net as the only path to acheive that. I discovered a very amazing website which explains how to make pv panels and so on. The website explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I'm not really sure bout how precise the information given there is. If some guys over here who had experience with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the thread it will be grand and I would extremely treasure it, cause I extremely take an interest in solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. U guys rock.
