    No comment here on how the additional heat from the mirrow downgrades the panel …

    Just got my solar cells for cheap. 5″ x 5″ solar cells for $1.20/watt. Limited amount! Act quick!

    Use discount code: SOLARDEALS
    Ends May 17th.

    Get them at solar-deals(.).com

    putting a mirror on a solar panel will DAMAGE it. Don’t do it. You will also void your warranty!

    The dog says “woof, woof.”

    The cat says “mirrow, mirrow.”

    And this video was on that same education level.

    great idea

    good video one question, where i can get one contrl unit ? like that one you have. thank you

    uhhh “mirror”?

  8. #8 by bucketrobbert at July 23rd, 2009

    yes more light more heat so findia way to cool the panels in the sun are u will fry them ok in winter cold and then thy can get hot

  9. #9 by Anothercoilgun at July 26th, 2009

    Yes mirror.

    Ever heard of solar concentrators? Just get a panel designed for that. An how will the panel know? If you live in a shaded area then mirrors simply produce nominal power. Also no mirror is put on a panel, Sun light is sent to the panel. Its not a fresnel lens Double light does not mean double heat moron.

    Great clip. Ignore the foolish fools for they know know how foolish they are.

    You have no idea what you’re talking about. I repeat… you will VOID YOUR WARRANTY if you put mirrors on your panels. Yes, obviously, you put the mirrors “next to” the panels, not “on” them, and the light is intensified on to the panels. This will cause the panel to overheat, which will damage the panel over time and void the warranty. So don’t do it.

    you can also have the same effect with a fresnel lens, you’re simply putting more energy onto the panel. BUT this will also put a higher load on it and will probably reduce the life of the panel. rules of thermodynamics people. Nothing is free.

    hmm I have seen totally encased solar panels put in water under normal conditions (ie w/o mirrors) which will cool the panels and increase output and efficiency when the panels are in high heat areas.. so.. how about using mirrors and submersion for this system

  15. #15 by HOWtoSTOPaging at July 29th, 2009

    great.. i’m going to build 2-3 panels for my house, would it be enough?

  16. #16 by makeSOLARPANELS at July 29th, 2009

    2-3 panels – enough for a small house

  17. #17 by makeSOLARPANELS at July 29th, 2009

    the unit cost about $30… it is all explained ..where and how, on my page

  18. #18 by jill9555 at August 3rd, 2009

    i want info how to build a panel

  19. #19 by jimjimjim567 at August 3rd, 2009

    i have built 6 panels in 2008.. cost 140 bucks each

  20. #20 by lordos6543 at August 3rd, 2009

    5 star thanks

  21. #21 by Freshbott2 at August 16th, 2009

    How mugh is the control unit and where can I get one? Would it work on a wind turbine too, to regulate the power and send it to a battery?

  22. #22 by cause121 at August 21st, 2009

    Ummm… Double light DOES mean double heat Moron!

    The problem with using mirrors is it’s hard to keep them in the right position as the sun goes across the sky. It’s fine for a little experiment, but not very practical for a large system.

  24. #24 by VillageIdiot8055 at September 12th, 2009

    the problem with mirrors is they create so much heat they burn up the panels

  25. #25 by kevinjluk45 at September 13th, 2009

    wow smart
