DIY solar panels and any plans to build them are a SCAM.

DIY Home Solar Energy projects are a cost effective way to install solar energy when approached correctly! Follow our articles by Solar Man Dan, who is a Licensed Solar contractor with a NABCEP certification (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners), has a degree in electronic technology, and 24 years of experience installing solar energy systems.

These scams formulated after Ronald Bronson and others have viciously hijacked the social media and internet we love. The need for affiliate advertising dollars has duped many publishers into posting false positive commentary on these "near fraud" practices, flooding the internet. Added to this, the perpetrators have engaged in a systematic program to create new web content, targeted at search terms looking for reviews, containing bogus rebuttals and further false energy saving claims. We encourage readers to become selective in the energy sites they frequent, to know that search results can be misleading, and to only consider reviews from trusted energy saving publishers like open4energy.

If by some chance, which is NOT so, the plans were for a real DIY solar panel, or DIY wind generator there is still no possible way to build a solar panel from components at a reasonable cost. It would like trying to build a car from spare parts.

You cannot build your own solar cells anymore than you can make your own plasma TV. You can purchase the parts, but the silicon solar cells are most of the cost of the panel. You can wire up your own cells and mount them in a frame, but there is no way you are going to get anything for $150 that will be of much use. You would be lucky to put together a 10W system that could power a compact florescent bulb for about 6 hours a day. This is hardly a power sucking gadget. - quote from

There’s also a video pop-up of a fake support person when you leave the site. Beyond that, Ambigrid has that classic “site in a box” look. And as we’ve warned in the past, sites that look amateurish are usually best avoided.
