Anyone use or tinker with them? Thought about playing around with a small setup. Any suggestions on a cheap place to buy? Thanks.

My buddy built one out of beer cans mainly. Takes a huge chunk of his heating budget out, but he is only heating his single wide.

Epe let me know what you are looking for. It is best to build your own. Here is a sketch of one we did...

Just looking for a simple setup to run a power inverter to run smaller things, like my gable fan, and 600 watt heater in the winter. Where do you get your panels from?
