I am the kind of guy who enjoys to seek bran-new stuff. Presently I'm fabricating my hold photovoltaic panels. I am managing it all alone without the assistance of my men. I am using the internet as the only path to acheive this. I ran across a really brilliant website which explains how to create pv panels and wind generators. The site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not really sure about how precise the info given there iz. If some experts over here who had experience with these works can have a look and give your feedback in the thread it would be grand and I would highly appreciate it, cause I extremely enjoy solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. U guys are great.
