How to make solar oven. Without using a pizza box?

We Answered:

Burn lots of fossil fuels and wait . . .

Your oven needs to just collect the heat. A clear plastic (PVC) beach ball would work if the back of it was painted black (but not hot enough to boil water).

You need something to concentrate the light better. If you make a big dish (parabolic is best - look it up) and line it with foil, it can be positioned to focus the light. This will easily boil a small can of water (paint the can black so it absorbs better). If you cover the unit with clear plastic it will work better in cold air.

An old satellite dish antenna makes for an easy solution. This other idea is super neat: http://www.instructables.com/id/Solar-po…

Michael Said:

How much does it cost a factory to make a solar panel?

We Answered:

First Solar recently announced that their costs to produce panels dropped below $1 per watt. I don't know how much of that is accounting tricks. Of course, that doesn't mean that they would sell panels for that price - any capitalistic company is expected to drive the price up to what the market will bear.

Crystalline silicon panel producers are coming in at about $2.50/watt right now for the best of them. But again, the selling price is what the market will bear.
