  1. Hi Robert, I like your demonstration of the building a solar panel.
    Is there any way of getting a copy of the full video to watch on my computer than going online all the time to check out your video.
    Many thanks

  2. THank you for such selfless act. I have been browsing the net for detailed instruction on how does solar energy work, and all I saw was bit and pieces and to know more you have to buy it in a package. I was overjoyed when I but up on your tutorial on yutube, free!!!. imaging my pleasant suprise. Thank you sooooooo much. I live in Jamaica where you may know it’s an all year round sunshine. So I am going to try to build my own solar panel (U Make It Look Easy). Question. Do the panels come in different sizesfrom the ones you used. say something that give more current? or voltage. (not an electrical student or chemistry, so i am not sure if i am using the correct terms. Once more Thanks man!

  3. Hi again Robert, Another question. You place the solar cells on ply board. what else can be used, say thick plastic sheet?

  4. Howdy:
    We live near Big Lake, Alaska and spent a lot of time on the internet finding your site! It was worth all the work. We tried out your bata solar tool to see what it would take to run a 350 watt computer power supply. It gave us a pretty good idea of what we need. Then we went on to look at the section on how to build a solar panel. Haven’t looked at all of the video’s but it looks like you have covered everything so far.

    Thanks for all the hard work.

  6. Hi Robert
    Thanks for the great videos and information. You explanations are very simple and easy to understand. Please keep up the good work.

  7. Hi Robert

    Thank you so much for the great videos! I am going to build one! Now, I ran into a problem. My panel (bought) is giving a reading of 24v and in sunshine, 3amps. When I check the readings on the output from the controller, I am getting 14v and 3 amps, so now my 60W panel delivers 40w maximum to the battery. Your measurements are done off the panel, not the controller, I bet the same thing is happening. Any way of avoiding this? Obviously the controller is going to limit the voltage to the 12v battery to tolerance limits, so knowing that yours is 18v, I would really really appreciate any comments you have to make.

    Keep up the great work!

  8. Hello there!
    I would definatly like:
    1) A full version of this tutorial (to download).
    2) An option to have the power calculated on the solar tools if we live in england.
    3) Links to where we can find equivalants of each item on UK sites (eg. ebay.co.uk).
    Thanks
