Post Cheap Solar Panels Idea
by: Ken Lennie

A solar energy panel transforms the energy from sun's rays into electricity. With the aid common parts found around your house, you can also make a solar energy panel and make electricity. The cleanest form of renewable energy available, solar power will only help deduct your energy bill.

Here is a listing you may need you will require you create a solar panel:

1 electric stove ( at least 1000 watts)
one half-square feet sheets of copper flashing
1 two-litre plastic bottle
1 micro-ammeter
Three tablespoons of table salt
Sheet metal shears
Electric drill w/ sand paper
Two alligator clip leads
A pair of safety goggles
A little tap water

Steps to prepare a solar panel:

1. First, clean off the copper flashing entirely. If there's any corrosion on the flashing, clean it with with sandpaper. With the sheet metal shears, cut the sheet metal shears, cut the copper flashing into size big enough to to cover the electric stove burner.

2. Now put the copper flashing on the electric stove burner and turn on the stove. The flashing should stay on the burner until a layer of black cupric oxide forms on it. This sometimes takes about 30 minutes.

3. Once the layer of cupric oxide has formed on the flashing, permit it to cool. Wipe the flashing so all the black cupric oxide is gone from its surface. However, make efforts to leave the red cupric oxide formed in the method, as it is.

4. Use the metal shears to chop another piece of copper flashing in the same size as the prior one. Take the 2-litre plastic bottle and chop its top off. Attach the two sheets of copper flashing to the insides of the plastic bottle using the alligator clips. The sheets need to be attached on the both sides of the insides of the bottle, and should not touch.

5. Connect the lead of the alligator clip of the clean copper flashing to the positive terminal of the ammeter. Now put the lead of the alligator clip of the red cupric oxide plate to the negative terminal of the ammeter.

6. Take some hot tap water and dissolve the table salt in it. Now pour this salt solution into the plastic bottle. But make sure that the salt water solution only covers the bottom of the two copper flashings. It shouldn't reach up to the level of the alligator clip leads.

7. Now place this set-up in sunlight. Watch the ammeter to tell the amount of electricity generated by this solar panel. While you set up your solar panel, be sure to wear your safety goggles all the time.
