"They did a wonderful job on my system and I would recommend them to my family and friends!" - Georg S. - Chicopee MA

I cannot express my gratitude for going forward with solar panels. From the initial meeting to discuss the possibility to the techs who eventually installed them. But most of all, it is the savings we have experienced. That first month was unbelievable. Solar plus our other electric source combined was less than our usual monthly expense. During the summer when our electric usage is higher because of the air conditioning, our monthly expense was still less than what we have paid with past summer usage. And if that’s not enough…our present electricity is primarily supplied by the solar panels. We have been building up a reserve with our other electricity source and will be able to draw from that all winter when our panels wont’t generate as much electricity. It’s a win-win situation that we’re just thrilled over. Having a fixed rate locked in is another great feature for savings.” – Virgil T. – Westport MA

How much current are you looking for? If its under 500mA, then they are fairly cheap. Over an amp and the price climbs.
Here's a few ideas -

For a recharger system, its usually best to have charge controller. This device regulates the current and voltage to whatever you are using as a load.

The other thing to do is to search for "DIY solar chargers" for more information.

How Do You Make Your Own Solar Panels?
I Have Heard You Can Make Your Own Solar Panels.... But How? Where Do You Start? Is It Cheap, Or Should I Just Buy Them Already Made?

if you're hoping to put 'em on your house and use 'em to supplement power from the grid, then you'll want to buy them.
the panels have to be made with exotic chemicals, in a "clean" environment, with dangerous chemicals.
anyone who tells you that you can make 'em yourself will be asking for money for the plans.

in truth, you could get an old panel, and, if it was the right voltage, you could use it to charge your rechargeable batteries.
typically, that's not the hoped for application.
and, to get enough power for you house, you're not going to be able to "do it yourself."

whenever you buy anything, make sure you know what it can do.
ie, read the fine print.
if it's a few hundred (or thousand) dollars, it's not going to be useful to augment your home power.
in addition to the strength, there's also the equipment that's needed to sync it up with the power from the utility, and that's neither cheap, nor a do-it-yourself project.

i've seen lots of "panels" but when you read the specs, they're pretty useless.
not good for battery charging, not for hooking up to your house.
in other words, interesting projects with no practical use.

What Stockes Will Be Profitable Because Of Summer? In 2011.?
What Do You Think About Dow, Starting To Make Solar Panels In The Usa?

Retailers do well in good weather (clothing, holiday gear).
Dow Chemicals is a massive and diverse company. I imagine the solar panel division is a very small part of the overall business. And one summer doesn't make a swallow!

What Are Solar Panels Made Of?

Solar panels are instruments made from "Silicon Cells" having the characteristic to convert solar energy into electricity.

Sunlight is composed of miniscule particles called photons. When the sun’s photons are consumed by the silicon atoms of the "Silicon Cells", the atomic creation of the solar panel is organized in such a way that electricity is generated.

When these solar cells are accumulated together with wiring, they become one concrete panel.

Where Are The Best Places To Put Solar Panels?
By Best I Mean Safest Places. If I Were To Install Them On My Roof Am I Risking Due To Damage From Weathering? Such As Rain Or Snow. I Don'T Get Very High Winds Around Here, Nor Any Natural Disasters Such As Hurricanes Or Tornadoes. Does Anyone Have Solar Panels That Have Been Durable For A Long Time? Is It Worth The Investment?

Photovoltaic panels are designed to be put on a roof, exposed (obviously) to sun, but also rain, snow, and wind. Generally, there is even a rating for something like 1" hail. A good mounting system will be stronger than the underlying roof, so will withstand most anything short of a direct hit by a tornado or hurricane.

There are a few panels from the 70's (that's the 1970's) still in operation, I believe. They look horrible, but are still producing a little electricity. Since then, housings have improved, and panels generally have a 25-year warranty today (some cheap ones are 20-year warranty).
