Mounting Cheap Solar Panels on DIY Frame 3.16 KW

Mounting all 20 solar panels to our frame. It’s starting to look like a solar array! These panels are 158 watts each, 3,160 watt array. They are about 12 years old, and were in use for 10 years before I bought them. They were sold used on Craigslist. Because they are so old I was able to buy them for only $0.16 per watt.

Wiring these panels will be a future video.

For the last two years I had these panels in my front yard. They were on Pallet frames, and fed directly into my space heater.

I built this ground mount frame in two previous videos. They are built out of salvaged metal.
