Workshop Description

We all would like to be off the grid, but the costs for solar panels are prohibitive ... or are they? Follow Dan and Don Adams through their latest project: building solar panels! They'll discuss the steps they took, the decisions they made, and how they trimmed thousands off the price by building their own. This presentation has been updated with their current projects, including flexible panels and DIY monitoring solutions.
