Hello

I am currently building DIY solar panel.I have a problem regarding the build up of the panel.
My question is can I attach the cells on to a normal transperant glass of about 5mm thick by a transperant silicon? My concern is if the cell will break or not, by the outer environment .

Thankyou in advanced

The cells are monocrystaline and they are very fragile.

The cells will need some protection and they need to be located firmly.
There are numerous videos of people constructing their own panels.
A Goggle search of video using "connecting DIY PV cells tabbing" opens up a whole vista of practical ideas including how to encapsulate the panel you've made.

From what I can see, it's a long and fiddly job!
