Lofty Energy makes DIY solar easy with educational solar panel kits!

Learn how to build a solar panel from scratch, starting with just a box of parts. Then end result is a fully functional 10-watt solar panel! A company in Missouri is offering an educational tool to do just that.

Savannah, MO -A solar panel company in Missouri offers an educational kit that includes nearly everything you need to build a solar panel. Complete A-Z directions for building a solar panel have been difficult to find, until now. These kits fill that void and come with nearly all materials and written, as well as video instructions. Solar panels are now easy to make in your own home!


The solar panel kits currently offer 10 watts of power per panel. The panels, once completed, can be used for powering a remote cabin, charging an electric fence battery, maintaining a boat or RV battery, powering lights in a chicken coop, or any other application you would use a ready-made solar panel for. They serve an educational purpose, but the end result is a usable solar panel.

The expanding product line includes more complex and powerful panels. These require an understanding in DIY solar, so it is best to start with the smaller panels and work your way up to the more powerful ones.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
