WHY NOT DIY INTO 2014?


Solar panels make in part from repurposed or recycled components?  

This Pop-Can Solar Space Heating Collector uses recycled aluminum soda pop cans for the absorber. The pop cans have the tops and bottoms drilled out, and are assembled into vertical columns that the air passes through. 

In operation, the black painted soda pop cans are heated by the sun, warming the air that is flowing up through the cans.

Here's a link to the set of instructions on the webpage, Build It Solar.
