Creating a solar panel out of broken re-used solar cell pieces. I ordered a pack of these from http://siliconsolar.com
(3$ for a bagful of them - you can order here
). In addition, you will need some conductive copper mesh (available at most art stores), glue gun + sticks, a multimeter and a conductive pen (or any sort of conductive brush-on - I got my conductive silver pen here
). In this tutorial I will try to explain the best technique I found to connect these broken cells, in order to create your own CHEAP solar panel.
