I have found a lot of information on using aluminum cans for solar heating…but I am looking for any information on using aluminum cans as a medium for solar panels and how this can be used to create electricity for the charging of a storage system (common storage systems which use marine batteries) in order to provide electrical energy to a house. Any and all plans, blueprints, thoughts, ideas, etc are welcome. I’m looking to go off-grid (does not have to be with this system, but I hope not to spend so much money as is required to solar panels in order to do this), something that can be done without looking to a major manufacturer if at all possible.
I’m also open to ideas involving a combination of systems. An example might be using the heat trapped in the attic of your home which spins the attic vents on the roof in order to spin or turn a set of turbine blades used to charge a set of batteries, in turn providing a renewable power source for your home.
If anyone has any thoughts, ideas or information on anything such as this which is real, please let me know. Thank you.
