    Big update.  We've started an Indiegogo Campaign - 'Solar for Sandy' - to provide emergency solar generators to families in New Jersey.  And we just added a new perk.  Preview Here

    Thank you!

    They are pretty good. Here on the northcoast in Ohio, we get a lot of cloudy weather - so it had to produce decent output with some shading as well as be affordable - and this panel fit the bill.

    Just posted build guide -

    Will be adding some solar oven recipes over the coming summer too!

    A free plan is also available on our website for the Qwik-Solar. Print it out and use it to build a solar generator in your shop.
