Two workshop participants learning how to cut smaller solar cells

Small cells like this are used for devices like battery chargers or garden lights The group started working with single crystal Astropower PV cells, but since these are no longer available, they then learned how to make 30 and 60 watt modules using the ribbon-grown Evergreen Solar cells. These are much more fragile but able to be cut with care and are available in quantity.
