Step 5: Soldering Bus Wire

Next, after hooking all 3 strings of solar cells up in series, I was ready to get my 22 gauge wires (red and black) ready for soldering. On the ends of my leads from my gauge wires, I connected some connectors to make the process of soldering them down to the bus wire a lot easier. Watch Part 7 of the video to see how I went about doing that.



To help give the inside of the solar panel a nicer look, I used 2 strips of wiremold and ran the wires inside those. This is also seen in Part 7 and Part 8 of the video. Afterward, I took the panel outside in the sun to test the voltage/current of the whole panel to make sure I was getting 18 volts and 3.5 amps in an open circuit and short circuit.


The solar stirling plant is the most powerful way to generate free electricity. It generates over 12x the power of regular solar panels in less space and for less money! Imagine lowering your monthly electric bills by 30, 40, 50% or more. <a href="https://solarstirlingplantblog.wordpress.com" rel="nofollow">Free video reveals</a> a crazy secret to cut your electric bills by 75% (or more) In Just 2 days!
<p>I used to have big problem finding effective ways to build my solar panels and maximizing my solar power.But I am getting better result now, after I stumbled upon this excellent guide I found <a href="http://the-natural-treatment.com/Solarpanel.php" rel="nofollow">HERE</a>. It was a godsend. It gave me great Solar Panel tips and showed me what I was doing wrong before.</p>
<p>im sure you will build it yourself. I made it 2 weeks ago thanks to http://inplix.com website.</p>
<p>Awesome,thxx</p>
<p>Great to see that http://inplix.com has new instructions to save my money and energy to build it :)</p>
<p>Did you use by pass diode ? or Just blocking diode ? Ty</p>
<p>The most well documented project I've seen. You cover the whole thing from soup to nuts as they say. You put a LOT of effort into this. Very well done!</p>
