Installing Old Solar Panel DIY

This is an installation of an old DIY solar panel that I had that is over 30 years old. It has some humidity damage from being in Florida. In this video I show you how I mounted the panel using Unistrut, some bolts, an old fence post, and some wood. I also test the panel with a multimeter to reveal that the panel is 18 volts without a load and more than 3 amps with a load from the multimeter.

I plan to install the other 3 panels I have in the next few weeks. I will replace the old wiring and rewire each of the junction boxes (the black panels on the back of the solar panel at the top). These panels are fragile and I do not want to damage them any further. If the performance keeps up after I clean and mount each of these panels, then I may get 10 to 12 amp-hours from these panels at peak sun.

This is a great book on Amazon that I would recommend you pick up to understand solar power (this is the 2013 edition and is great reading): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1907670289/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=1907670289&linkCode=as2&tag=erilaysyoucha-20

This is the Grape Solar Panel that I am particularly fond of (many people sending me messages):
