    very interesting video. keep it up. 2 month ago, i visited world’s THE largest solar frame and accessaries company in china. they process 5000 tons of aluminum ingots per mouth. that’s “mass production”. that’s like 100 alumimun Tiger tanks per mouth.

    Yeah I bet, they were like the only company that I saw selling frames when I was searching on Google.

    I don’t think embedding the cells in acrylic is such a great idea, it adds a bit of permanence to the panel.
    If a cell ever goes bad, and they are all in series, the whole panel will quit working. Better to lay the cells face down on a piece of glass, and put some sort of plastic laminant over the backs. Something that can be removed later. Perhaps when my cells get here, i will make my own videos with aluminum framing.

    I have seen on line panels for as low as $1.74 per watt, for panels ranging from 100watts to 210watts. If I could build them for as little, and ensure that they will last 20+ years; I’d make them myself. Later from sunny FL
