Screen shot 2013-07-25 at 12.01.44 PMThis is an updated video with of the DIY solar panel on a rotating pole. The mount was made from 1 inch irrigation water pipe, 3/4 inch PVC, old flag, electrician tape, patio umbrella pipe and Tees. All the parts can be found at your local plumbing store, scrap yard or city dump. It’s a little rough around the edges, but it was made from materials lying around. This type of projected was designed to carry my shower door 80 watt DIY solar panel or two, lighter 100 watt factory solar panels. The rotating mount can follow the sun from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
