    I recently got a new panel~ Super excited. I know it's a little different than what's usually posted here, but I'm also wondering if anyone else is into this stuff?

    I'm kind of wanting to get into electrical circuitry, so solar panels would fit in with that.

    Also, I recently heard that they've found out that if you make solar panels that can capture two different segments of the spectrum, you can auto-regulate the production much easier. Should help increase efficiency in panels once implemented.

    I'd just buy some instead of building them, but that's me. If you want to learn go for it~ But be careful becasue fires can happen.

    Oh no, I wouldn't want to build a solar panel. That's still within the "component" range.

    Ah right. Well go get one~ See if you can get a damaged one too. Costs much less.

    I run a 24KW system hooked up to 2 redflow batteries, pretty much running off the grid now.

    Oh nice! I'm still trying to get my 3rd and 4th panel as well as a new inverter.
