Oz had asked how I was doing on the home builts, soooo-
Progress: cells all tabbed, lost about 3% due to cracking, but that is OK, as it forced me
me to find a way to cut them for other projects. Bonus.
All cells tested, and grouped so panels will have equal cells.
Roof to mount them on has finally been completely rebuilt. Needed to be done anyway.
Built two smaller panels for 12V charging on R.V.'s, one for me, one for a friend. This
pointed out the need for a better vacuum pump, as there are a few small bubbles.
They function in spite of this.
So now I have a 20 ft by 70 ft roof to mount them on, I know the build is do-able,
and just require life to co-operate so I can get to it.
