If you don't want to, then you can build your own solar panels on "How to" sites.
- How to make cheap, inexpensive solar panels
- How to build a homemade solar cell (you'll need to make a lot of these, for instance 20)
- Help with Solar Panels
- Home-made Solar Panel video tutorial
I plan on building my own solar cell/panel, or talk to my energy provider, Cobb EMC for services. I'll post as soon as I build one, I hope it'll inspire you to go green :)
