This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.

Learn DIY solar with recycled materials for your shed, home, community project (or anywhere!) with Demand Energy Equality – and take home a completed panel at the end of the day.

From where to source the materials to how to connect multiple panels together, you will learn all you need to know to build a small or large solar panel for a fraction of the cost of buying one. You will learn:

  • The electrical basics: current, voltage, resistance, power, series and parallel circuits.
  • How to build DIY solar PV panels.
  • How to test and understand your panel.
  • Information about the energy dilemma in the UK and possible future solutions.

You will be provided with all the materials you need to build your panel. The size of the panel you will build ranges between 40W-80W, and depends on how well you and the soldering iron get on! Demand Energy Equality can also provide further information and guides on consolidating your learning and how to tailor your DIY solar to your needs.

Booking is essential as some of the courses will be fully booked weeks in advance. However if places are still available then reservations can be made until 4pm the day before the course.
