How to make your own high performance solar panel with workshop provider: Andy Wilson
This workshop will look at how to make a high quality solar thermal panel out of recycled materials. Contrary to popular perception, solar panels are not hard to make and the basic materials may cost as little as €50.00. The type of panel featured in this workshop has the capability to heat water to 50 degrees Celsius as early in the year as February and to over 70 degrees on a regular basis during the summer.
By the end of the workshop, a fully operational (and very professional looking) solar panel will have been built, weather- proofed, mounted and plumbed in. This workshop is aimed at people with little or no previous experience who want to learn how to make their own solar panel.
