DIY Solar-Powered PC: Solar Components

Attaching The Solar Modules

Because our solar array is a research tool, we didn't follow standard industry practice and enclose the solar modules within aluminum frames. Instead, we used lumber available at any home improvement store. This not only made it easy for us to build and set up our installation, it should also make it easy for us to change things up any time we like.

Measure twice...

Cut once...

... and drill out the lathes.
