Can I build my own active panels?

Yes you can build your own solar hot water panel as well as solar electric (photovoltaic) panel and you do not need to be an expert to do it! However, it is difficult to build them up to the quality and performance of a commercially manufactured one. Search the web using a phrase such as "build your own solar panel", or borrow a book on Do-It-Yourself active solar from the library.
