A goal of mine is to have a constant, reliable, free, clean, source of flammable gas at my house. This is proving to be quite a challenge. I have been breaking water into hydrogen and oxygen for quite some time, so that is the route I chose.
In this Instructable I will show you how I constructed small solar panels for use in my larger Solar Hydrogen Generation project that I will post later. This Instructable will focus solely on how I assembled cells purchased online into functional panels.
The steps in this Instructable will include the following:
Step 1 - Materials
Step 2 - Building Part 1 - Soldering Leads to the Front Side
Step 3 - Building Part 2 - Soldering Leads to the Back Side
Step 4 - Building Part 3 - Final Assembly
Step 5 - Conclusion
*This Instructable involves the use of power tools. As with any project, be smart.
