The best part of building your own homemade solar panels is that you can design them to fit your particular wants. If you have got a lot of roof or other leveled surface area you can make many panels and link them together. If you have limited space you can still economize by building a few little panels.

If you can not put the panels on your roof, the panels can also be placed in the yard in a spot where the daylight is not obstructed.
