  1. I am the kind of hombre who passions to seek innovative things. Currently I am manufacturing my private solar panels. I am making it all alone without the assistance of my staff. I am using the net as the only path to acheive that. I discovered a very awesome site which explains how to contruct photovoltaic panels and wind generators. The website explains all the steps needed for solar panel construction.

    I am not sure bout how precise the information given there iz. If some guys over here who had experience with these things can have a peak and give your feedback in the site it would be grand and I would extremely treasure it, cauze I really passion solar panel construction.

    Thanks for reading this. U guys rock.
