Build Your Own Flat Panel Solar Cell

Solar CellEveryone is looking for a way to introduce some of the green ethic into their lives, correct? But dangit, if those giant solar panels aren’t EXPENSIVE. No more. NetScienceNews has figured out how YOU can make small, inexpensive solar cells right in your own kitchen, using only some copper sheeting, a hot plate, and a little salt water. Sure, they aren’t as efficient as the commercially available solar cells…but THESE you can make yourself. Check out the original project log here, and check out the new and improved flat panel version here.
