    One day we all need to think about Renewable Energy and Solar is the only low cost, affordable and feasible option available today.
    It will be interesting to come up with All season Solar panel.
    In short I am interested Please include me in the upcoming meeting.

    I think a show and tell could explain it better.
    It's pretty much a solar tracked parabolic mirror linked to a radiator and window fan.

    Would love to her more.

    I had made one of those before back in 2002. They capture slightly more heat than a window of an equal size. Insulate your box, use double pane glass and external mirrors to add to the efficiency. Black obviously absorbs more heat. If you're going for btu's your collector will have to be massive. But it'll work great if you want to cook food or boil water. My solar collector got up to 248F?

    If you're looking at heating a house or room with solar there's a far more efficient and aesthetically pleasing solution, with temperatures exceeding 1500F at the source. And it'll only set you back $120. That's my $0.11, Good luck with the build!

    I would love to try to work with a group to build one of these solar window heat collectors - using cans or cardboard. It would be great to figure out as a group how to Capture heat.

    I'm in... I like the Rocket Heater idea also...haven't tried one yet, but I'm willing to wing it.

    I think it's short for "energy".

    I'd love to learn more about affordable ways of producing solar energy for use in my home. When and where?
