This is a video of the panels I will be using at the UF biodiesel plant. The solar panel arrays in the Solar Energy Park use a passive tracking system which allows for the panels to increase efficiency about 20%. Eric Layton, part of the UF Biodiesel plant, used the solar panels to help power the facility.

Here is my DIY Solar and Wind book that was published on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1508454310/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=1508454310&linkCode=as2&tag=erilaysyoucha-20&linkId=URNF3DPORKY4M5YR

This book is one of my favorite solar books in my library (bought it on Amazon) and I can recommend many of the solar books on Amazon to help learn more about solar energy:

This Grape 100 Watt Solar panel on Amazon is very similar to the panel that was bought at Home Depot:
